Specialties

Dr. Larry C Driver has the following 3 specialties

  • Hospice & Palliative Medicine
  • 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.

Dr. Driver has provided excellent care for my husband for several years. He is friendly, courteous, and compassionate. He takes extra time to listen to our concerns. We completely trust the care he provides.

Not the best

I have to agree 100% with the other review. Dr. Larry Driver is not a very friendly doctor to see. I have been a patient at MD Anderson for 22 years and Dr. Driver is the one and only doctor I have ever come across at this hospital that has been rude, unprofessional, uncaring, and just downright ugly to me. It's sad that a doctor who works at a cancer hospital treats people this way. If you are in pain and have Dr. Driver has a doctor, be prepared to be treated like a criminal. I wish the other patients I have spoken with at the hospital that agree with me would come on here and leave reviews. People deserve to know how uncaring and uncompassionate this doctor is. I am in the process of reporting him to MD Anderson because I think they deserve to know. It upsets me to think that someone with cancer and pain has to deal with this pain "doctor".

One Star

My husband has been going to MD Anderson Cancer Center for about 8 years and has Dr.Driver as a doctor. I find Dr.Driver to make my husband and I feel uncomfortable...I really love all of my husband's doctors and I get along with everyone but Dr.Driver questions me and my husband (I'm not even a patient) like criminals leaving us to feel uncomfortable and not very welcomed. My husband has had cancer almost loosing his life and we pay lots of money to go to MD Anderson Cancer Center so he should make you feel comfortable and as if he cares about you. One time Dr.Driver let my husband leave his office with a broken arm for a couple of days with no medicine and told my husband "it wasn't his problem" I find Dr.Driver unprofessional and not very welcoming like every other doctor we go to.
