Specialties

Dr. Gerald L Peer 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.

ie: medicaid

I go to Dr. Peer's office and the staff has been nothing but nice and extremely helpful. They have gone above and beyond to help me with my situation. I too ask them about medicaid for a friend of mine and there was no laughter just a simple "they are not excepting new patients with medicaid at this time" I don't know who that last person spoke to about it but it could not have been Dr. Peer's office.

Great MD, Outstanding Person

I have been treating with Dr Peer for several years. Without his help, I doubt I could have continued working all this time. He really works with me like a partner in my physical problems. An excellent listener, and always willing to try new methods of pain management to keep me working. I realize that I can be a difficult patient, but his patience and superior medical knowledge help me overcome my fears. He is very careful utilizing pain medication, and prescribes it when needed. He does not over-perscribe. He is an exceptional MD but on a personal note, I've never met a better man. Do not hesitate to consult with him if you're looking for a pain management physician. One more thing, his office staff is always pleasant and helpful. This is a great professional medical practice.
