Dr. Donald L Dodson 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.

Overall, the day of my surgery was filled with nervousness and anxiety. Luckily, the nurses and other staff at St Lukes did their best to make the day as easy as possible by answering my questions and concerns....specifically about my Type I Diabetes and how my glucose would be monitored during and after surgery. However, when Dr. Dodson was given my concerns - he became quite arrogant that a patient would be questioning him regarding their care. He told me that I would just have to trust my caregivers...and if I wasn't prepared to do that "maybe I should just go home". This was 10 minutes before being wheeled into the OR - I was already prepped - IV started and all. Needless to say his rude and arrogant responses did very little to help my concerns. I am currently in the process of changing both my OB/Gyn and my endocrinologist - both who are associated with St Lukes Hospital - because I do not want to run the risk of dealing with Dr. Dodson at St Lukes hospital in the future!
