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 been a patient of Dr. Schumacher two times and have been very pleased with the outcome of the treatments each time. My back pain is totally gone and I am able to continue with all my activities with no problems what so ever! I was treated by Dr. Schumacher and his entire staff with utmost courtesy and respect! I have had always Dr. Schumacher was extremely patient and superb listener during the interview. I would recomend him to any patient suffering from chronic or acute pain.
Dr. Schuhmacher is wonderful. He actually takes the time to listen to your story and determines what he can do to try to help you. While he's great, his office staff is not. I think it may be because they are so busy, but they don't return phone calls and they don't send referrals timely. Sorry, but no excuse for that. Also, I don't love that they aren't clear about your appointment time. They tell you one time, but come to find out they just tell you a time 30 minutes earlier than your actual appointment. The result - you end up waiting forever to make up for patients who can't manage their time and come on time.
