Dr. James G Uy has the following 1 specialty
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 have been seen by Dr. Uy for about 6yrs. I cannot say enough good things about this man. He is not only an excellent physician but a SUPER human being. I recently found out that He was treating me for almost a year without receiving payment from my Insurer, (US DOL OWCP) yet he continued to treat me. OBVIOUSLY he is not in it for the money. He has done the best he could for me considering my condition and the limitations of what my Insurer will cover. I have had several procedures (Spine Injections under anesthesia), and he was right there when I went to sleep and when I woke up. In fact I actually remember him reassuring me while I was under anesthesia(it doesn't totally knock you out). He is a no nonsense Man and will not tolerate foolishness or patient abuses (medications), but that is what I appreciate about him. Just follow the Office Rules and the Law. If you are REALLY suffering from pain he WILL give you the best treatment regime the two of you can work out. Not, just what HE wants you to do. We have not always agreed upon my treatment options, but he never demanded that I "follow orders without question". I have been able to discuss options I have researched online with him, without feeling like he is looking down on me or that I am stupid. He always explains the reality of my treatment options versus what I think they should be and why. Dr Uy, takes all the time it takes in each office visit. I have never felt rushed or that He was too busy. That may cause us patients to wait a little longer to be seen, but that's the cost of a Good Physician. His office Staff is very supportive (especially Barbara), jovial and never rude or uncaring. And each time I have called for something I was taken care of as soon as possible. I am moving away and I am really sad that I cannot take him with me. I will really miss Him, his Staff and I now wonder what is in store for me as far as a "new" physician... I will never find another Dr. as Kind, committed and dedicated as James G.Uy. I am not a relative, friend, employee or anything other than a very satisfied patient. I highly recommend him for Pain Management or Anesthesia.
