Specialties

Dr. Claude M Oliva 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.

Saw this dr for 12 years. He gave the strongest pain meds, procedures and was nice but then he started changing some meds and advised me I could take one non narcotic with my pain meds. I had a bad reaction and when the dr from the ER called to ask what all was I on, I was told to find another dr. Well after I went through therapy to get off of pain meds and using only what I need I'm not great but a lot better off. They will loose your charts too
