Specialties

Dr. Munir S Merchant Sr 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.

Quacksalver

After a two hour wait he finally comes in and seems hurried and rushed. I've been dealing with this spinal injury for over a decade. I've been through nerve blocks, spinal injections, NSAIDs, muscle relaxers, rehabilitation, and every opiate from Vicodin to Dilaudid. And according to my previous doctor most medications I try have paradoxical side effects. When I find something that works I stick with it. Dr.Merchant offered surgery, spinal injections, rehabilitation, and lidocaine patches. When I attempted to explain my situation and experience he began speaking over me louder and faster simply repeating himself as though he were accustomed to treating small children.I finally asked if he could prescribe pills. He said no we don't do that here and left the room. So I left and I won't be returning. What sort of pain management doctor doesn't prescribe pills?

Saw Dr. Merchant for over a year with no trouble, was always kind to me, even if visits are short due to overwhelming number of patients. BUT. ... he got a new "boss" who decided my pain is all in my head and let me go. His only concern Now is pleasing the new head guy.....
