Specialties

Dr. Matthew E Harris 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.

BEWARE Dr Matthew Harris caused me the Worst Pain in my life

Beware!Horrible WORST! Dr. MATTHEW HARRIS caused me extreme pain during a routine epidural procedure. He failed to wait for the numbing solution to work and instead he immediately and carelessly injected me with epidural solution. This caused extreme PAIN and burning! This awful "Dr" Spent only 5mins. on a what should have been a 30min. procedure. This man should lose his medical licence

Sciatic pain level 10

Dr Harris ordered an MRI for me and within 1 day of the mri I received my first epidural injection. It lessened my pinched nerve pain by about 50%. At the second visit I received another epidural and that one did the trick. I am now pain free. Dr Harris took the time to listen to me and was empathetic to my pain. I highly recommend his services.
