Specialties

Dr. Craig S Nairn 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.

Poor office management

I have been trying since May to get an appointment. I was told I had to get my records to the office. I did that and the records were received by his office in May. I was never contacted by his office. I called back in July and was told that my records were sent but they were never given to Dr. Nairn. I was assured the records would be sent to Dr Nairn and would be contacted in a couple of days. No call! A week later I called back to follow up and spoke to another person who told me he didn't find my records and that they were probably shredded and I would have to get them resent! He would not listen to my explaination about my conversation with another staff member just the week prior. I guess I will go back to New Mexico Orthopaedics. At least they will schedule an appointment for me! Why are doctors in practice if they don't want any patients? Mmmmmm

Excellent bedside manner! Great sense of humor! Explains things in a way that's easy to understand! I don't how many patients he has, but a personal next day follow-up by him would be very comforting and would re-enforce the patient knowing he cares!! I personally know he has a great sense of compassion but a phone call by him or one of his assistants would go along way!

Exceptional Doctor

Dr. Nairn is a pain patient's dream! He spends time to listen to your particular issues and needs and carefully discusses options. He stays up-to-date on new research and I believe he offers more care options than any other facility in the area (including newest equipment for advanced procedures). Unfortunately I have been to many docs both local and in other states and consider myself lucky to be able to see Dr. Nairn!
