Specialties

Dr. Miguel A Pupiales 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.

Doesn't care

I have been a patient for almost a year. I called the office and had to leave a message. I said I was in pain and would like to make an appointment with the doctor. I called again the next day and spoke to the front office. I asked. If they had received my message, which she had, but offered no reason for not returning the call. She did however inform me that it would be 4 months before I could be seen. When I asked what I was to do for my pain she suggested I see my primary or go to urgent care or go to the E.R. because I had signed a contract with this office for pain medication, none of the suggested medical places can help me with pain medication. Which the front office knows. They are uncaring and I am in a world of pain. I cannot recommend Dr Pupiales because you can not see the Dr when needed. He does not take care of his patients needs and is unconcerned with their pain.

Dr. Pupiales will. 1. Diagnose and treat you right the first time. When it is your time with him he is a wealth of knowledge and he will create a plan to get your pain management going. 2. Awesome staff. They will answer all your questions and treat you like you are the only one there when it is your turn and they are working with you. Please remember you are not the only patient. Employees don't have time for long private conversations not relating to your treatment. Once they are done with you the awesome treatment, and focus, goes to the next person being treated. People actually in treatment come first. 3. As with all "good" doctors appointment times are guidelines. If Dr. Pupiales needs more than the time allocated for your appoint he will finish the procedure right or ensure everything is done and you understand what happened and your part to follow when you leave. 4. The most impressive thing about Dr. Pupiales is the true care he has for his patients. I am sure this does not always happen but one time Dr. Pupiales had to leave unexpectedly and had to cancel medical treatment procedures. Did Dr. Pupiales say "oh well”. Not only no but he opened his office that weekend to treat those of us who could come in on the weekend and gave those who didn't the priory when appointments came open. 5. Can you name a doctor that opened his doors on the weekend, loosing money, to ensure his patients treatments stay on their pain relief schedule?
