Specialties

Dr. John J Keith has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

Labeled my spouse as a drug seeker when he visited him in the ER after our Orthopedic surgeon told us to take him to the ER. He sent him home with and xray and a shot of pain medication when he could have diagnosed him with discitis and osteomyelitis which was radiating into his psoas muscle. He is a diabetic and has an infection in his spine which has caused him increased back pain not un controlled chronic back pain which is what he discharged with and wrote not to come back to ER for. 2 weeks went by until we could received the results he could have gotten in one night if he had not been so smug and dismissive. In and out of and ER in 30 minutes and he spent all of 3 minutes with him and walked up to him 3 times. Worst doctor I have ever encountered.

Dismiss pain, did not review x-ray results before discharge, did not gather all info from family

Did not give adequent medical care for a friend and sent her home with infection and severe pain from her kidneys and remarks made by one nurse on duty. Dr. Kieth refused to look at the patients whole medical profile given by her husband. He did not review xray's with her or her husband before discharge. Her pain was dismissed. This woman has went through mulitple child births without pain medication. This family pays out of pocket and you can bet my friend waited until she could not tolerate the pain any longer before going to the ER. She was treated with IV fluids and released with oral antibiotics. She did tell the Dr she had been throwing up and could not keep anything down. You would think IV antibiotics would be in order instead of sending her home with pills that she has been throwing up and her temp is starting to spike again and of course she is double up with periods of pain so bad she can't talk or move. Being asked to come back to the ER just seems like a money racket. Sounds like she was set up to be forced to recieve a second round of treatment. We are worried about her.

He was very rude an made an assumption about me with out even letting me tell him what was wrong. I have a terminal illness which cause leg pains an swelling. I checked in for that not asking for meds because I have my own but puzzled about the swelling he told me he would give me a tab an I can go.
