Specialties

Dr. Michael J Huntley 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.

I was very happy my spine surgeon referred me to him. Dr. Huntley's procedures saved me from spine surgery and helped me to get off my medications.

Long time patient

I was treated by Dr. Huntley for many years. He is one of the best I have seen and no one since has compared. He spent the time, explained everything, is compassionate, knowlegable, and extremely skilled. He stopped seeing patients in 2013 so the complaints since then don't make sense. Seems like the bad reviews are about staff or drug seekers. He was hard to see because he was the best in San Diego and in high demand. HIs skill was outstanding and rare.
