- Pain Management
A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.
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.

He was careless giving my mother an injection. She has a permanent spinal cord injury is on oxygen, in pain 24/7 and can barely get around. He changed the medical record three times to cover his tracks and lied during his deposition, changing his story after the deposition took place of what happened. RUN to another pain management provider
I have been seeing him since 2007 .I have never been treated with so much care as Dr E and his staff have given me. He listens to me cares about what you say and tries to make sure you are in pain.I have very complex problems and had chronic pain for 40 years l know how other Drs.can treat you he has never done anything but try to help me. He is always been there for me at a moments notice. Without him l probably would not be here to write this review. I have to move to Oklahoma now and l don't know if I can ever find a caring DOCTOR like him again.I will be at a loss
