Dr. Peter G Purves 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.

Not Impressed

I liked his accent, that's all I can say on a positive note! I received an Epideral Steroid Injection in my cervical spine from him. I HAVE A HIGH PAIN TOLERANCE but I was pouring sweat, felt un godly amount of pressure and I kept telling him I was uncomfortable but he didn't seen to care. His bed side manner was rather unpleasant also. That was my first and last time seeing him. I've had numerous procedures repeated and have had no issues.
