Dr. Ioannis M Skaribas has the following 2 specialties
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. Skaribas is the best doctor I've experienced since i moved to Texas. He is very caring and he listens to your concerns. He actually wants to help you. He has a positive attitude. He gave me hope after having bad experiences with other doctors. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Skaribas. Best pain doctor ever!
After suffering for years with chronic intractable burning nerve pain I made an appointment with Dr. Skaribas. After going over my pain history he recommended the DRG spinal stimulator account I've literally tried every modality in search of pain relief. My pain is now under control and I have my life back. Dr. Skaribas and his medical team is compassionate and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Skaribas to anyone that suffers from chronic pain.
I have to say I was skeptical about anything helping my lower back pain, but Dr Skaribas definitely fixed me up! Now you have to understand, not everyone responds to epidurals the same, but so far, the two I received from Dr. Skaribas have worked very very well. Anyone with chronic back pain knows it will come back sooner or later, and having a good Dr like him is a big relief.
I truly appreciate that Dr. Skaribas allows you to tell him how you are feeling. I am never rushed. And, he has helped me eliminate the sciatic nerve pain that I had been dealing with since 1996. For the past 3 months I have had no nerve pain. It is truly awesome. Also, his staff is outstanding. At one particularly difficult time, I was having a hard time finding the time for an appointment. They went out of their way to accommodate my schedule and saw me that very day. I owe them a debt of gratitude.
