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 had been seeing Dr Turnipseed for over 10 years. There was a shake down in Baton Rouge concerning doctors who were handing our pain meds like candy. He got scared and had his PA tell me he was no longer going to prescribe my long lasting pain meds and give me Percocet only. There was no way just Percocet could handle my pain since I was already taking Percocet plus my long lasting medicine and it was barely keeping my pain level at a 6. That plus he was going to stop me cold turkey! I guess dr Turnipseed had something to worry about and was quilty of something because he did the same thing to other patients. I guess greed had gotten the best of him and he was now caught with his hand in the cookie jar AVOID DR TURNIPSEED or he will take as much money from you as he can while apparently doing dirty jobs on the side
I am currently seeing him. Had to reschedule an appt and could not get in to see him until 3 weeks later. Called everyday to see if I could be placed in a waiting list to be seen sooner. Neither the nurse nor the Janise person seemed to care about my pain. Finally got to see Him. Waited over an hour for him to spend 2â£ minutes with me!! Do they care????
I've only gone to him twice because he wanted me to come in every 2 weeks for a two week(30) supply of Percocet 7.5. I have 7 ruptured discs. He's a joke. And to deal with his girl Friday was a bigger joke. Literally. But they love that money you pay when you sign in. The only good thing about him is he's almost old enough to retire.
Was discharged because I disliked being on heavy pain meds. They never explain the "RULES" for pain meds. I never taken long term medication. Patches would fall off on the box they had 800 and they told you if your patch falls off flush them. No one told me you end up short and if you do too bad. If you see him DO NOT EVER question him because he thinks he is smarter than you. He was smarted than me, but I hated the though of drugs.
