Specialties

Dr. Philip M Maurer 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.

Maurer and the God Complex

I'm a tennis player who saw this guy for a pain issue radiating in my arm nearly ten years ago. He diagnosed me without ever TOUCHING me, and one of his diagnostic comments was "I could easily break your arm if I wanted to". He said I needed a disc fusion or would never play tennis again. His extremely off putting bedside manner was enough to convince me to seek another alternative. I did so and fully resolved the issue without surgery and have continued playing tennis ever since. If this man didn't have such a ridiculous attitude and manner, I would likely have conceded to a totally unnecessary disc fusion, so I guess I should be thankful for that. For what it's worth, here it is ten years later am I'm still aggravated enough to post this comment.

Have not had procedure recommended yet. However, I waited close to 2 hours to be seen and altogether was there for 2 1/2 hours and saw the doctor for 10 minutes. Not complaining about the doctor but no excuse for an appointment being that long.

Five Stars

When I came home from fighting in Iraq, I was injured badly and I thought I might never walk again without a cane. Dr. Mauer was confident that my pain level would be much improved after an epidural - and it was!

Get a second opinion before he does anything!

Think twice about seeing this Dr. My husband ended up in worse condition and in more pain after seeing this man. He offered no help, no advice....nothing. Get a second opinion before letting this man touch you.

Exceptional

Maurer is an exceptional physician, highly skilled at what he does. Should take a minute to LISTEN to the patient a little bit more and stop being so gruff.
