Dr. Damon F Robinson has the following 1 specialty
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 only need to say one word, 'Harvard'!!! You would never know it by talking with because he is very modes and humble but, Dr. Robinson was trained at one if not the best pain programs in the country. I have seen several pain physicians after suffering from continued back pain after surgery. Many of the pain doctors I went to see before Dr. Robinson were willing to provide me with Percocet and vicodin as long as they could do injections. The injections were helpful but didn't last too long. When I went to see Dr. Robinson at the encouragement of my spine surgeon I was pleased with is global approach to pain care. He informed me that the opioids I had been taking for 5 years would result in increased sensitivity to pain with time and we needed to take a multimodal approach to address my pain. We engaged in nerve medication, biofeedback (relaxation techniques with psychologist), injections and physical therapy. The combination helped me to come off of my Percocet which I had been taking for years. It wasn't easy but I didn't realize how dependent I was and have to admit I was not headed down the right path. I appreciate Dr. Robinson's honesty and global options he provided me. Without this I may have become addict. I deeply indebted to him. You will find him to be very professional in his care and interaction. He always runs within 20 minutes of his appointment time. He always returns my call the same day. You can truly tell he cares for you and wants the best for you. I am truly blessed to have found a physician like him, in the day and age of healthcare it is refreshing to have a doctor with high level of compassion and care
I went to see Dr. Robinson after months of pain from a herniated disc which was pressing into my sciatic nerve. Pain killers, oral steroids and physical therapy were just not working. Dr. Robinson gave me an epidural injection, and I felt relief immediately. Prior to seeing him, I had daily, constant pain from the bulging disc. It hurt to walk for short period let along long period, to sneeze, to get into the passenger side of the car, to blow dry my hair..you get the point. It was becoming depressing. After the first shot, I was like a new woman. I had the second follow up shot and my third is now on hold because I am doing so much better. Now I have intermittent, mild/tolerable pain which I can alleviate with naproxen and some PT stretches. Dr. Robinson has a wonderfully light touch, and the procedure was over in no time. Even when he said I would feel a pinch or some pain, it was so light. He is super professional and kind. I would recommend him to anyone.
