Specialties

Dr. Brian Shih has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Great doctor

I have gone to other pain management doctors. He was caring and would see me not send in the medical assistant when I went to the office. I went to him for years and would still be with him but change of insurance

I have many gross neurological diseases. MS, SM, AC is the worst and what started this. My nervous system had too much ICP due to an arachnoid Cyst and for 40 years I suffered from too much pressure on my brain.

Two Stars

Well I did receive a series of three injections for lower lumbar region. Yes it did relieve pain temporarily, but after visiting other pain management specialists, very honestly told me that these treatment s will be very frequent due severity of my spine. His staff are very unprofessional at best, more concerned with their Lattes than patients needs. Terrible response on call backs, lost my info numerous times. Will not return.
