Dr. Joseph W Draper has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

WORST anesthesiologist I've ever been subjected too

I've had 3 dozen major surgery and never experienced anything so horrible as his work. He dislocated my jaw and neck and never took any responsibility. Taking him to court seems unlikely. Unless an attorney can see making $50K on the case it's not worth it to them. That said, In 2003 another person whose parent died while under his care filed a malpractice suit but ended up cancelling it.
