Dr. Jeffrey W Folk 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.

I've seen five different pain specialist in the area, Charleston SC. Dr Folk is by far, the best. He takes the time to explain in detail your diagnosis and his suggested plan to treat your chronic pain. I highly recommend the office of InterveneMD. Dr Joye is also excellent. The office staff is very professional and efficient.
Really took time to listen to what was going on with me. I felt "heard". Had pain injections. I thought he was just getting started when he was finished. I got the recommendation from a hospital anesthesiologist that I knew. I felt very comfortable. Be careful out there looking for pain specialists. This physician is qualified. I'm a registered pediatric/ labor amd delivery nurse. I was impressed.
