Dr. Olufemi Y Saliu has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

One Star

The doctor was asked a simple question about the anesthesia which would be used for my husband's operation and answered. We thanked him. But he kept going and became a real smart aleck with a prolonged 'explanation'. The question was respectful but he was not. By the time he finally stopped being obnoxious and left, we were both very uncomfortable about him administering my husband's anesthetic. He gave the impression of having a lot of attitude. A simple question got a response that was very out-of-line: lengthy, obnoxious, smart alecky, and with a huge display of attitude. I don't know what his problem is but we hope never to see him again.
