Specialties

Dr. Lawrence R Poree 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.

Poor pain control and inadequate anesthesia

Non adequate sedation. Felt everything , including incision, scar tissue removal, stitches. Extremely painful. Sedated enough to not be able to tell him to stop or remove myself from the situation but able to feel pain, squeeze the tables my arms were tied to, moan and groan and lightly cry out. I am needing another implant surgery that would greatly help with pain but I will go without if it means Dr Poree would be doing the surgery. This surgery would be more intensive and I have no intentions of being awake enough to feel this torture. I'm guessing Dr Poree has never had surgery himself

Don't Do It!!

The worst experience of my life!! Dr. Poree is horrible! Same w/his partners. I have chronic pain in my lumbar spine from years of being a world class gymnast, as well as cervical spine pain from my years as an equestrian, (had a BAD fall once). I would NEVER go back to this house of horrors again!! I have dry, bulging discs in both my lumbar and cervical spine. I was laid on a table while Dr. Poree did an epidural right up my tailbone. It was thee most painful thing I've been through aside from childbirth. His assistant asked him if I needed a 're-do' due to the very hard time he was having during the procedure. His swift response was, "NO". I am permanently injured from the injection, and neither doctor would even speak to me again after the botched injection. Not even a follow up visit. I believe they are out of business, as the phone number is invalid. Two HUGE thumbs down! I couldn't rest my lower back against anything, or sit directly on my heiny for over a year because of them!

You will not find anyone more inteligent

I have been seeing Dr.Poree for over 6+ yrs. It is true ,too many people make for a long wait and somewhat rushed appointment. However ,most people forget, it is not he ,who determines what you will receive in care ,for the most part ,it's your insurance company. This man has helped me to no end ,even doing things that he may not get paid for ,big$$ ! So ,to me , his help as well as his unreal accreditation, has been an invaluable tool . If you are TRULY in pain , he would be the ONE to find a solution. I find ,despite some minor impositions, that, he does care ,he does want the best for you ,and will go to bat for you at the drop of a hat ! Keeper !
