Specialties

Dr. Kalyan S Lingam has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • 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.

Unfair treatment

This doctor had me coming to three appointments, then after I told the nurse practitioner about the severe headache, loss of sleep, dizziness, nausea, and sleepless nights...they suddenly couldn't do anything further for me. I went to the doctor telling him which medication made me violently ill, he has me to destroy the prescription yet when I returned for the 2nd appointment he prescribes the very same prescription same milligram dosage of which he had me to destroy a couple of weeks prior. It wasn't even a 30 day span between the first visit and the second visit. So when I arrive for the third visit, I am lethargic, dizzy, my blood pressure was elevated (I do not have high blood) and was generally in a sick state...BECAUSE of the medication he prescribed, this doctor didn't even have the decency to come into the room to check my vitals to see if I was going to die...he sends his nurse practitioner into the room with a prescription I couldn't have filled for another 4 days telling me there was nothing more they could do for me. The whole thing here is the fact I did NOT want needles stuck in me for treatment, I informed this doctor of this during the first visit. Why couldn't this doctor (that was supposed to be so highly recommended and well respected with such a "caring" track record) tell me during the first visit that there was nothing he could do for me? No, he wanted to make money by having me come for 2 more visits, as I stated there was NOT a 30 day interval between visit #1 and visit #2...but the thing that ticks me off the most by this highly unprofessional doctor is the fact I explained what the medication another doctor prescribed for me and how it upset my stomach, made me dizzy, gave me horrendous headaches, generally making me sick...he tells me to destroy the script when I got home. Then he turns around and prescribes the very same drug for my second visit. The thing that hurts me most is the fact that I had to drive DIZZY and sick for almost an hour to have his staff tell me they could do nothing more for me and was discharging me!!! As I stated, this doctor didn't even have the decency to come into the room to examine me after I told his staff how ill I was...they simply didn't care. My advice to you is to seek health care somewhere else, this office only wants to make money.

I have suffered chronic, excruciating nerve pain for more than 20 years as a result of radiation for breast cancer. Dr. Lingham has been treating me for several months for this condition. I find him to be very compassionate, patient, and a good listener. He also explains my options in a way that I can comprehend. As a result of his treatment, my pain has been significantly reduced and I feel like I have my life back. I'm so thankful I found him.

Glad to have found him

I had seen many doctors after a serious industrial accident. Was introduced to Dr. Lingam at Morrow County Hospitals pain clinic. Best results with injections. Dr. Lingam and staff are very professional-- but with a compassionate touch. You are not just another patient. Very grateful to have found him.

Best overall results

Have been treated by many doctors with affiliations through numerous hospitals. Dr. K. Lingham listens, and offers realistic, systematic options for obtaining pain relief. Not your typical 'Thank you, drive through, uncaring approach'. Dr. Lingham has a sincere desire to help his patients.
