Specialties

Dr. Douglas R Gugger 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.

Five Stars

Dr Gugger is easy to talk to, listens to his patients and works with them to find the best route of treatment for each individual person. I have been a patient of his and I would highly recommend him. He recently changed employment and I am trying to find out where he is working now. He was unable to disclose the information to patients of his previous office, in witch is understandable.
