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.

I have found Dr Johnson and his staff to be courteous and pleasant. He spends time to determine what needs to be done. I had only one problem on my last visit which had nothing to do with the doctor or nursing staff. The front office staff lost my chart and didn't get me in for my procedure. I had to ask them why it had been an hour and I still had not been called. They got me in immediately and Dr Johnson said we would look into the situation and apologized for the delay
Dr, Johnson, understands how you feel he listens, he remembers you if a 6 month or longer time goes by.... Be side manners are important and he is one of the best. He is a Dr that cares about there patients and takes the time to listen not just in and out.... I have had several surgery's and there are only 2 Dr. I trust. Dr. Johnson doesn't just push you through he finds the best solution for each patient he goes the extra mile to confirm and not guess. I do recommend Dr, Johnson and his express how friendly his staff is.... No matter what I feel its important when a Dr knows you.
