Specialties

Dr. Matthew L Kuiper has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Terrible bed side manner. I was told he was going to put shots in my back. I have never had this done before and had some questions. When started asking questions, he said he didn't have time because he had other patients to attend to. For the prIces. They charge I feel that asking what is going on isn't asking for much, If your new to a pain clinic I suggest you go somewhere else. Go somewhere where they care about you and you are not just a number to be rushed through.

Appointment Experience & Result

Dr. Kuiper is very easy to communicate with, and knowledgable concerning pain issues with my spine and joint problems. He suggested that I do injections for both SI joints at once and that has proven to work very well. I would recommend him to anyone with ongoing pain issues. I had a terrible experience elsewhere, so coming here has been way less stressful. I do get sedation, which also relieves the anticipation of any more pain. So, my visits are painless, and Dr. Kuiper is very efficient when giving me injections. Thanks so much.

One Star

They are interested in giving you shots and charging your insurance extrordinary rates. You are a individual, are not treated well at all. Often, you will receive little or no relief and wait at least one hour per visit.

A Blessing to me

When I first saw Dr. Kuiper because of the pain in my feet, I was not able to walk enough to go into a store for more than a few minutes. Certainly could not walk down one aisle even! He was very kind and professional and I would certainly recommend him as I am now able to walk.
