Specialties

Dr. Jeff L Buchalter has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • 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.

The amazing Dr. Buchalter

Dr. Buchalter is absolutely amazing. I work in a school as well as teach drivers Ed. In the summer. Therefore I have a pretty tight schedule. And live about an hour and a half from Pensacola. Dr. Buchalter always gets me in when it is most convenient for me. He has been treating me and my mom for several years and neither of us would ever consider seeing anyone else. I have is the most compassionate Doctor I have ever been to. He does everything in his power to ease the constant pain I experience. He makes me feel like I am the only patient he sees. He is very attentive to all of my needs and takes time to answer any questions that I have. He also personally follows up on me after I have a procedure. There is no doubt in my mind that he sincerely cares about his patients and wants to give them as pain free life as possible.
