Specialties

Dr. John E Blake III 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.

Waiting times are horrible

People in severe pain cannot sit for 2 hours in a waiting room! Why make appointment times when you overbook or have no intention of seeing patients at their appointment time?

Not a doctor

I have been to his office many times for my back pain. However, I only saw him once when he was asking me to try epidural block. I don't like injections at all. Unfortunately, I ended up giving a pain patch to try. It does not help me at all. Totally disappointed.

Cutting Edge Practice-All around-Best in Town.

I have been using Specialists In Pain Management for 1 year now. Dr. Blake and staff are very knowledgeable in all aspects of pain management. All the front staff, nurses, schedulers and chemists are nice and friendly. I can say this because I have used two other pain management practices in town. Each one of the other practices was prior to me have a surgery. One, a hip replacement and two a spinal fusion. This is a very busy practice. From the waiting room things my appear like nothing is going on, but behind the doors they are busy as bees. In this field of work, every "i" must be dotted and every "t" must be crossed. I recently got an injection here that nobody else in town does. Forty (40) minutes is not along time to wait and in fact you get a dose of laughter in the waiting area. The "Golden Girls" are on the television! "Laughter" is one of the best medicines. I don't always rate doctors, but when I do, I am sincere.

1 1/2 Stars!! Probably angry, bitter patients. 5 STARS in my book. Happy patients don't fill these things out.

If you are looking for help with your chronic pain issues, this is the place to be. If you are looking for someone to prescribe the meds and dosages YOU think you need, go somewhere else. This is a practice that implements multiple approaches to managing chronic pain. Treatments MAY include: OTC meds, prescription creams or patches, opioids and/or nerve pain medications if indicated, psychological tools to help you and your family cope with chronic pain, interventional procedures such as epidural injections, nerve blocks, nerve ablation, intrathecal medication pumps, spinal cord stimulators, and much more that I do not know of. Dr Blake is Board Certified and Fellowship Trained- something you definitely should look for when choosing a pain Doctor. He is a kind and caring person- something else you should be looking for. HE LISTENS. They work with many different insurance plans and are one of the few pain practices in the area that you can go in for an initial consult without a referral. Chronic pain is a nasty, insidious disease that affects the life of the patient and their family in many ways. If you suffer with chronic pain, you already know this. Can you be healed completely and live totally pain free? Believe it or not, it is possible! Unfortunately though, it is not the norm. The idea behind treating chronic pain is to help give you the tools that help you manage your pain better, and hopefully get back the parts of your life that you no longer can do because of your pain. Will there be things you will need to try that may not work as well as you want them to? Changes in medications to fine tune your treatment? Frustration? YES THERE WILL. There is no magic bullet, one size fits all treatment for chronic pain. The good thing is, almost all these treatments are reversible. You don't like the way your treatment is going and you've given it a fair shake and a decent amount of time, find another practice. I know I would not be working, and possibly not be here to write this, if not for the help I've received from Dr Blake and his team. Don't ever give up. Call today and schedule your consult. You have nothing to lose, and you just might get your life back and look forward to tomorrow.
