Specialties

Dr. Demoyle Howell 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.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Good anastesiologist bad time recorder, bedside manners need improvement

I may have caught Dr Howell on a bad day, but I did not have a positive experience with him as my assigned anesthesiologist for an elective procedure. He showed up to my bedside the day of the procedure and was curt. He appeared annoyed that I was asking so many questions about his role and the medications he would be using etc. I was asking questions when the nurse gave me meds administered by Dr Howell who again was curt with responses & the nurse told me to just take the medication & both were rushing me to do so. Later I found out that once a patient takes the medication that's when Anasthesiologists can start charging for their service. I woke up once after being Put under, but otherwise have no recollection of his work(which is a good thing). The biggest concern I have was with a bill I received after the procedure. Dr Moyle claimed he worked with me 15 minutes longer than he did. We had proof of this, but felt if he was that desperate for some extra $ he can have it. When I called his office the lady on the other line was so rude. She wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise. Figured the only way to warn others about my situation is to write my reviews so others are aware. Please make sure you watch the time or have your loved ones pay attention when you go under Anasthesiologists and when you wake up as that's what doctors use to charge. In my case the surgeon was out talking to my family member because I was fully awake when Dr Howell claimed I was still under. Just saying.. Be careful.
