Specialties

Dr. Maxime G Gedeon 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.

Been seen this Dr for 7year and one day he left me waiting over one hour. I was upset and mad even anxiety because had another appt. he notice n ask me what wrong I say am anxious because been here over hour n had a appt. He never say sorry for the wait. Then he say I need it a Psychiatry I say I do and then he told me he need a letter from her and I told her and she send it. And they call me and cancel my appt. and say they were sending a letter. He say he didn't want to be my Dr anymore because I had mental problems, I was in shock because seeing for 7 year how can he treat me this way. Why can't he told me in person why he can see me, and here me. I never ask for more meds or increase it or ask for sooner prescription. I complain about headaches and that happen went move my neck. And he never pay attention all I want is to see why was happening and never help me with that. And say on letter I was crazy wow 7 year and never say nothing like that or even think I was crazy, he just want it to not be my Dr anymore. He never really help me all he want to do is give my shots n say there is nothing else it can be done with you. Found out with another Dr there is something can be done to have a better daily life, and he never want to help me then. What Dr. does that. Don't give to him he will not help and then send you letter saying won't see you.

left me with painful headaches

I became very ill as soon as he gave me the injection. I was in the recover room for about one hour. I had to be wheeled out in a wheel chair to my car. I asked if there was and restriction and the nurse said no. I have had a debilitating headache for the last 3 months after the steroid injection.

AWFUL!!!!!!

Dont go here just because its convenient to the area you live in. Find a good Dr in the lehigh Valley who actually cares. Once you can no longer get $2,000 injections in your back or nerve blocks because your insurance wont pay he throws you to the wayside. He has a god complex and doesn't truly care about his . I was sick with a GI bug and couldnt take my pain meds he refused to give anything for nausea or an alternative (like a pain patch) . It would have taken him 5 minutes to do this for me. Refused to help me. What kind of Dr does that? You decide. I ended up in the hospital for pain control because of his lack of care. Didnt care that I was going through withdrawals from being sick and not getting my meds down. This is basic doctoring. I was probably interrupting one of his $2,000 injections.
