Specialties

Dr. David N Calkins 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.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Dr. Calkins

I appreciate what he has done for me and my family. I was very happy to find him. I read the other peoples reviews and disagree with many of them. I have been given other diagnoses, by other Dr's. but after all of their treatments, I wasn't much better. Dr Calkins asked me to wait and see if his diagnoses was correct. We could judge by whether or not I got relief from my pain, with his treatments. I did get relief and this has given faith in his diagnoses. After meeting with him, I went home and spoke to my friend and told her about our meeting. She had been treated by him and was very happy with the result. Her husband was also a patient and he said he was also happy to have been treated by him. I asked them why they didn't put a review on the internet.

Totally Unprofessional

On my first visit I waited over 3 hours for a pill sheet from the hospital I was released from for him to make a complete diagnosis on my pain without reviewing any other medical records in my case.On my last visit I brought a complete set of records in which he choose not to review.His manner was "totally unprofessional",degrading,unethical, and rude.Since going to a different pain management who took the time to read my records I am living pain free!

personal experience

The receptionist was the only nice & professional person on the staff. Dr. Calkins and his medical assistant are extremely rude and non professional. The office is way in the middle of nowhere. I would never recomend this Dr. and his office to anyone.
