Dr. Howard A Hargrave 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.

Wonderful experience

This was the best operation experience that I have ever had. He has a great and creative personality that is helpful in his field. Told me that it was his job to do the worrying. He gave me a pill to keep me from throwing up afterwards and medication that made me very relaxed. He distracted me with questions about my day while he was putting me under. I did not know that I was going under. Usually they make you count down. This was way more effective. The next thing I knew, I was waking up in disbelief that it was over. I was like really the operation is over really. Very little pain and for the first time I did not throw up. In fact I ate a muffin right after which was offered by the nurse and the wonderful staff at the grand valley surgical center. What a great combination. Dr Daniels, Dr. Hargrave and the staff at gvsc. Everyone was so friendly. What a great experience.
