Dr. Mark R Lodico 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.

Dr. Lodico is all about quantity healthcare vs. quality! If you have an office visit you can expect to wait approximately 3 hours to be seen! The office staff is extremely rude and discourteous to everyone! I'm waiting to call one of the news channels to report this and have them go in and see how patients are treated in the Wexford office! Beware!!!!!
From the staff to the physician assistants to the doctors this practice has NO idea how to treat people. They kept me waiting at EVERY appointment. Sometimes 30 minutes and sometimes 90 minutes! You always see a PA, but then they leave and have to CHECK with the doctor who is there that day to see what they want to do, although this doctor never saw me in the over a year I have been seeing them. They drug test, which I have no problem with, but they said I failed one of the first drug tests because I said I was on dilaudid but it didn't show up on my drug test. Could it maybe be because the test laid around over one month before it was actually tested?? Nobody seems to care about their patients care of well being. NEVER in the year I have been seeing them have they asked what medications I am taking. They are prescribing strong drugs and have NO clue what else I am taking. Definitely irresponsible in my opinion. More times than I can count I have sat in the exam room crying because the pain is so bad. The response was several different people came in to try and get me to quiet down. Excuse me for being in pain. I was in the hospital for 2 weeks for a different reason and we notified them as we have to because I was receiving pain medicine while in the hospital. Due to being in the hospital I had more oxy than I should have because I was receiving it in the hospital. They were notified and told, but on my next appointment I was questioned in a very condescending tone by 2 different people -"Why do you have so much oxycontin left?" AHHH! While they threaten you if you don't call they obviously DON'T put it in your medical record or they would know why I have more oxy than I should - I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL! How are these people still in business? PLEASE DO NOT GO TO ANY OF THEIR LOCATIONS - ERIE, WEXFORD, BUTLER AND A COUPLE OTHERS. None of these people (doctors, staff, or PAs) have any business being in the medical profession! They don't care about their patients.
not bad. The oncall is horrendous and I have ended up in the er because I did not have a pain pump or epidural injection recently. Overall though they took me seriously as an endometriosis patient and did not force injection or more surgery on me. I am 27 and have had 16 abdominal surgeries to date. Everyone else treated me like a junkie even though i was on no medications no illegal medications not pain med seeking etc They took the time to listen to me and my needs. So happy with this office but annoyed with the extremely long wait times
8 visits never saw him - all work done by PA's some of them thinking they are board cert. Doctors when in fact - if you have a question about latest pain treatments from NIH, CDC, JAMA, NE JOURNEL, anesthesia today, vompletely clues, robotic in nature, and offensive thinking you had the odacity of asking a simple question. Not up on lates intrathecal pain pump management. Constantly confuses appt times and on and on - YOUR IN ENOUGH PAIN RUN THE OTHER WAY !!!!
