Specialties

Dr. Paul P Carnes 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.

Patients treated like crimials

Do NOT fall for the charismatic sales pitch from Dr. Paul Carnes about how they want to be your full-service practice for pain management. The caring, smiling treatment you get that day is the last you will ever have. Once they've got you under contract and you left your other doctor, you will be treated like absolute dirt and a drug seeker from that day on. I've decided they're putting me through drug tests at every visit, even though I have never failed one, so they can charge me and my insurance company huge amounts of money for many unnecessary tests. PA Jan and nurse Denise are AWFUL. If they do something wrong, and you bring it to their attention, no matter how nice you are about it, you are in for it! Those two women are highly vindictive, passive aggressive, and i am sure they (and others) spread all the gossip about patients they dislike so you'll then find yourself beig treated like dirt by the pharmacy, among other staffers. The list of very serious problems I've had with numerous "practice extenders" and the pharmacy is way too long to detail. My father was doctor for 50+ years. So many of his patients came to my Dad's funeral just to tell his family members what wonderful care they received, how much they loved him and considered him a member of their family. Sadly, that was a different breed of doctors in my Dad's generation. Dr. Carnes and Raleigh Neuro are nowhere near that league. Dr. Carnes doesn't care one bit about his patients. How many procedures can he book you for and how fast can they get you out the door. Carnes is also extremely arrogant. What an ego! PLEASE save yourself the HUGE mistake I made and RUN, don't walk, as far away from Raleigh Neurology as you can get! Good luck to all the suffering patients who are people who need treatment, not to be treated like sub-human criminal drug addicts. Awful, awful, awful. :(

This doctor left myself and many others high and dry with no notice. When his merge with another practice fell through, he was gone. My records were transferred to him when the merge was pending, and now cannot be located. He cares, about himself. I had difficulty ever getting an appointment in a timely manner, and when I was scheduled for a procedure, it got re-scheduled and then cancelled due to the fact that he had departed for NC. I saw the PA when insurance pays for the specialist, only to be told that I needed to come back to see the specialist. Two co-pays for no results, since that is when the procedure that never happened was scheduled. Who knows if he is actually good at what he does when the whole situation is so far out of control that he just leaves? My overall rating in 0 stars for 0 help. Like many others I am at square one, starting over, and still in pain.

Being a particularly rare, complex, and young case, Dr. Carnes took great interest and genuine well-being in my plan of treatment and made it his goal to reduce my pain. Although there was little success beyond his control, he's been there every step of the way even in times when he was not treating me
