Dr. Benjamin I Atwater 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.

Caring, competent physician

Dr. Atwater spent quite a lot of time with me. We went over previous medications used for my issues one by one. He thoughtfully quizzed me about how well each and every medication worked for me and whether I had any unpleasant side effects. He researched potential medications to see if they could adversely interact with my current medications. He was compassionate and understood my medical issues. I would recommend him to others.
