Specialties

Dr. Gary L Fuchs 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.

Needs a psychiatrist

Felt like I was there for him almost every visit. He would go on and on about how bad it is in medicine today! When he did treat me he would argue about my pain and tell.Me I was on too much medication.(which he put me on)

Physician review

Dr Fuchs is kind, knowledgable pain physician who will work hard to figure out and then treat the pain issue. I had a pinched nerve in my neck and laser was used and the pinched nerve pain resolved.

Three Stars

I have never been treated so rudely and condescendingly by any physician. Dr. continually interrupted, changed my words, told me my other Dr's treatments were wrong, my medications were wrong. Had to listen t a litany of how he grew up in Brooklyn, NY and no one was as good as he was and how he worked for pennies in his current practice. Very hyper, no empathy, interrupted my appointment 3 timesto treat others, had me in tears almost the whole appointment, yelled at me, told me I was to "complex", etc. never will I go back even if I have to drive hours to someone else!

A Very Caring Doctor

Dr. Fuchs has been my doctor for several years. He is a bit hard to get to knw at first. I have been to another pain doctor, and it seems to me that they see so many people who are "doctor shopping" and not real pain patients. So they ae a bit guarded at first. My recommendation is that you take any documentation that you may have about other therapies that have been tried and the types of problems that you have. That makes it a bit easier. Also, give him a few appointments to get to know you. You won't be dissappointed. He is very knowledgeable and compassionate.
