Dr. Fred K Khalouf has the following 2 specialties
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 was seen first visit by the PA...TRUST ME....Find another doctor. He knew she was having problems trying to tell me about things but would not even come in the room to EXAMINE me.... I am in Pain from a car accident and because my MRI showed no broken bones and just mild arthritis.. They won't give me the benefit of the doubt! What a joke....I am active,,,,Never abuse any systems....don't have a lawyer...and just want answers on how to control my sciatica. GOT NOTHING FROM THESE DOCTORS.
Don't be deceived by smiles, speaking nicely to you, or acting as though this doctor cares. I truly believe is fake. He is dishonest and because of this and other things that he has shown about himself I don't believe that he cares about patients, their pain, and definitely doesn't care about the truth. Liars are not to be trusted with anything, especially your health and well being. Doctors warned me about him but unfortunately was after I had already seen him. It's my honest feeling that his actions are guided by money and not by truth or what is right and best for the patient. If you have real pain issues and need real care, see a real pain management doctor who cares about you and your pain, not this Dr. Khalouf who has clearly shown cannot be trusted. Do self a favor and see another doctor. Do your homework and check the doctor out before putting your health and well being in their hands. Be careful of D.O.s who can treat pain conditions because they are anesthesiologists, and who recommend and do a lot of injections. One can see the number of injections and other treatments that a "doctor" performs and charges for. Find a specialist in your condition or specializes in the bodily area of your problems or at least get opinions from these specialists before allowing an anesthesiologist to start injecting you. Don't go by the number of star ratings as these can be made higher due to things like appointment ease, comfort of office, and on staff friendliness and can cause the rating to be higher. Instead look for doctors that has reviews written so you can get a more accurate review of the doctor and what is most important to know about them.
Looking for a pain management doctor? Look no further. This doctor goes above and beyond in treating your problem. The moment you meet him you feel that you are in very competent hands. He listens, is patient, offers good advise and direction in treatment plans. Visits are well documented and the staff in this office get an A plus.
