Dr. Felix R Muniz has the following 2 specialties
- Pain Medicine
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.

I saw Dr. Muniz at the Irmo office (Pain Management on St. Andrews Road), where he did two lumbar facet injections to aid with the pain in my lower back. I like his chair-side manner; however, the condition of the work space is horrendous, and the office staff is much less to be desired. I was face-down on a table which had a hole for my face. Looking through that hole at the floor, I nearly gasped at the idea of bacteria!! There was an abundance of hair of different sorts and colors, and dust bunnies and dirt all around the table. This was a "surgical procedure" as I understood it, where my back was prepped to have very long needles inserted (one needle even was bent after the procedure....did he miss or was the disc that degenerated...no comment from him, of course). Anyhow, I'm hoping to never have to go back to that particular office. I can't say that Dr. Muniz did anything wrong, but he, especially, should have insisted that he do the procedure in a professional and clinical setting. The wait to be called for the procedure was almost 2 hours; that same for the initial visit. To have to wait in a doctor's office for that length of time is absurd, inconsiderate, and inconvenient to both the patient and the person who was kind enough to escort the patient there for a ride home!!
I was referred to this clown by my family Dr.. I have had several surgeries on back. Have chronic pain. He gave me Advil and a prescription for a medication at the Florence location that my insurance did not cover, over $500 to fill. Called Florence office following day and was informed he was in Columbia office, contacted them, they offered to change it to another med that my insurance wouldn't cover either.. They treated me like I was lying.. finally got insurance in contact with him. Then they offered to provide a medication that insurance would cover if I could drive from Florence to Columbia to get it. Drove all the way there and they had no prescription. Stated they contacted my pharmacy and they agreed to substitute original prescription with something my insurance would cover. I contacted pharmacy and spoke to everyone there and they all stated that not only were they not contacted that they could not make substitution on that prescription.. So once I proved the staff at Dr office that assured me they had a new prescription waiting on me when I made the journey to Columbia.. no precipitation, proved they lied about pharmacy.. And then they tell that trash of a Dr had already left for the day.. I went to the Florence office the next day insisted on speaking with office manager. They were very apologetic and made it more than clear that this type of behavior was common for muniz they assigned me to another Dr on the spot and he has been a Godsend. I recommend staying far away from him and his excuse for a staff.
