Dr. Lawrence A Kropp has the following 2 specialties
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 suffered with debilitating pain for almost 10 years now, and as a 30 year old female, I'm too young for my pain condition to ruin my life. Dr. Kropp is the ONLY doctor I've ever seen that has given me any hope for a normal life without narcotic pain medication. He takes the time to sit with me and my family (who ARE in fact able to come into my appointments with me) to make sure we all understand what he thinks should be done and why. I have severe "white coat syndrome" (very afraid of most doctors) and have never felt uncomfortable with him or anyone in his office including the billing staff. They have put so much effort into making sure my insurance is billed properly for the procedures without needing my involvement in the process. It's so great to come across a clinic that cares so much about my time and experience with them. The staff is AMAZING and I truly could not ask for a better experience. I talk to a lot of people about my pain condition as it has significantly affected my life as a once incredibly active young woman and anyone that I can refer to him for procedural treatment vs. narcotic pain medication, I will do so in a heartbeat. I have seen people in the office come out yelling, but only because they display what I can only describe as drug-seeking behavior and he has the integrity to deny such requests because he is confident that he can treat you without unnecessary treatment methods. And he does. I'm so incredibly happy that I was able to come across Dr. Kropp for my treatment, I could honestly go on for hours. Thank you Dr. Kropp and staff for everything you've done for me. Could not possibly be happier with my experience!
