Dr. John V Prunskis 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.

Wonderful Doctor

I can't imagine that anyone would call Dr. Prunskis "mean" or a terrible doctor! I have seen him several times over the years, and he has consistently performed procedures that helped my pain (back and neck) significantly. Yes, he does not typically talk on the phone, but I have an internist and 3 specialists, and NONE of them do! Patients must remember to judge their doctor by performance and not by whether or not they hear what they want to hear! He has been CONSISTENTLY kind over the years, and I have NEVER seen him mistreat his staff. Most importantly, I have had pain injections with other doctors, and his technique is the best! He injects so slowly and precisely that pain is minimal, considering the complexity of the procedure. The best in the state!!

Fixed my back pain and gave me my life back
