Specialties

Dr. Catherine T Puetz has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

ER visit

Never saw the Dr. yet was charged $438 for being in the ER the same time she was supposedly there. Called the office to complain and was told to write to Dr. Brent Beckham at the lockbox address in Chicago.(BTW, there is no Dr by that name accoring to AMA records. Additionally why send correspondance to a financial lockbox?). Office staff unhelpful and hung up on me because I insisted that I should not have to pay for a dr that I did not see. Mind you, my insurance covers almost all the bill, so it is not money out of my pocket but the insurance company's pocket. Who says nothing is wrong with our system when a dr can charge $438 just for being in the same building.
