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 have been going here for over 15 yrs. The Dr, is wonderful . But I have had problems with the new staff ( approx. 4 yrs) . I can't get a return call ( most times) or a correct answer to my problem with the presc . that the nurse writes. Because so many prescs have had to be fixed , I have a hard time with them even talking to me. If I don't watch out for me, who will ? I'm Not the only patient that has had to have the prescriptions fixed . I leave messages for the Nurse or Office manager to call me and Nothing . I get the voice mail more than a person answering the phone. Love the Dr. But some of the staff , needs re-trained.
