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.

I had written a review before but one of the categories showed four stars and it should have been five. Plus I forgot to mention Alyx. My wife usually talks to her and takes care of everything. And my wife cannot say enough nice things about Alyx. She is always so nice, so pleasant to talk to and always accommodating. They are all the best.
This doctor is incredible. Used to be in charge of both pain management offices at Walter Reed Medical Center and Bethesda Military Hospital. Best doctor in the World. Bedside manor is the Best. It is like talking to an old Friend. I give this doctor 100 out of 5 stars. I used to see Doctor Cherrick 2 stars maybe. In the Springfield Office walk out of Cherrick's office and turn left, take about five steps, turn right and you are at the Best Pain Management Doctor in the World. The wait time varies. Dr. Houston spends as much time as you need. Well worth a little wait. His Staff are so friendly. His Nurse is awesome. Can't say enough great things to say about this guy.
I had an original injury that left me four boots and four casts with in 3 years. After the physical injury healing I was still in pain. I went to 4 different doctors before Dr. Houston and none of them could help me. Dr. Houston could. He set a treatment plan and was nothing but amazing during my visits. Less than a year after my initial visit I am healed. Amazing doctor and would recommend!
I SUFFER FROM AN INCURABLE PAIN DISEASE, TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA, AND IT IS ONLY DR. HOUSTON'S EXPERTISE IN TOTAL PAIN MANAGEMENT THAT HAS HELPED ME TO HANG ONTO LIFE WHEN SUFFERRING THE TORTURES OF PAIN ATTACKS. All of his staff is always supportive and their constancy, as well, helps me to live another day. This disease has a 25% suicide rate - many doctors will not treat it, but Dr. Houston constantly manages it without hesitation and he understands the severe psychological damage as well, so in addition to the great medical care, he, and his staff, ALWAYS give, and give, and give encouragement and hope.
I feel very confident in Dr. Houston and his well trained staff. He has been a lifesaver.
