Specialties

Dr. Douglas Smith has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Dr Cold and Callous

I might have caught him on an off day, but this doctor had zero personality.The meeting was very mechanical, and cold. I'd like to be positive regarding him diagnosing a problem, but that too went poorly.In the end, I made arrangements to been seen elsewhere. UTMB was amazing, Dr Smith was not.
