Dr. Hagop Tabakian has the following 2 specialties
- Pain Management
A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.
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.

Dr. Tabakian was my pain management doctor for 3 years and I have never had a better doctor no matter what their specialty was!He was always patient and caring. It took a very long time to diagnosis my RSD, but at no time did he make me feel that it was all in my head. He always did his best to keep my pain under control and kept up on the latest treatments available.He recently moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. to practice there. I have to admit, I cried when he left as did many of his other patients. His new patients in Florida are very lucky!
When all the other doctors had given up on me and told me to just deal with the pain, Dr. Tabakian took me seriously and kept insisting that I keep after the neurologist &find the problem that was causing the pain. He told me the general area for them to look and a 1 1/2 year later they finally found it when I had lost the use of my left side. It was a brain anerysm the size of an orange exactly where he said it would be. He never looked at me like the other Dr's who thought I was making it up. He not only helped me with the chronic pain but gave me support that it wasn't in my head and I had a right to keep pushing the Dr's to find it. If he hadn't I would be dead now. He knows his stuff and he isn't condescending to his patients!!
