Specialties

Dr. Leonardo L Kapural 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.

One Star

After seeing this Dr for over 5 years I have become more and more displeased. I have waited either in the waiting room or in an exam room on many occasions since he went back to Carolinas Pain Institute for over 2 hours--then I never get to see him, always a different Dr or PA. He continues to prescribe a medication for epilepsy to me to control pain. I am an Insulin Dep Diabetic, have hypertension and chronic kidney disease and this type of medication has severe life threatening results when taken by someone in my condition. I tried to explain this to him today but all he wanted to do was over talk me and insult me. I am changing pain management physicians to someone who will listen and who actually cares about the whole patient rather than just collecting my co/pays and scheduling steroid injections to manage my chronic spine pain. No more!!

Two Stars

Dr kapural started out to be a dr that i loved. As time grew his only focus has been to take me off of my pain medicine instead of helping me be comfortable. I was ran over at the age of 2. Born with a form of spinabifida. Have had arthritis since ahe 16 and have been on the same pain regimen for years. Instead of helping without question he just took away medications. So much for caring about your patient. Im looking for a dr that cares.
