Specialties

Dr. Atef F Wasef has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Horrible Physician!

I have seen this doctor a few times and everything was going good till I had an allergic reaction to an injection. It was very scary and I had to be taken to the hospital. The next time I saw him they did a drug test. The drug test was negative and I was drooped from the program. I did not understand why. I even said I would bring my pain medication in so they could see I had it. I honesty think he dropped me because he is scared I am going to get a lawyer.

Funny how lawyer only has good thing to say about this doc? He does not take time to listen to patient, an put me on a medication that is giving bad side effects. I contacted him an disregarded my concern an the major side effects the script said to contact the doc on immediately should side effects occure. It was apparent he cared less though my mind is going insane. he's been a doctor too long take care anymore find another if you want appropriate medical attention !

No compassion!

I have seen this doctor a couple of times. He discharged me from the practice because I had a negative drug urine test. I told him i did take my medications, but he would not take me back as a patient. I had a hair folicle test done and it showed my medication levels over 3 months and he still did not take me back. He is a poor excuse for a Doctor. I thought people in the medical area are there to help heal Its seem all he likes is his 1200 dollars per injection.
