- Pain Medicine
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.

While Dr. Patel is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor, one of his staff members was always unpleasant with me and on my last appointment, extremely rude. She was so rude, I have switched doctors, much to my displeasure. If you are considering this practice, I suggest you only speak with the doctor and Shannon, she is as caring and thoughtful as the doctor. Hopefully the doctor will see what this other staff member is doing to his practice and make the necessary changes required.
Dr. Patel hardly looked at me during my visit and I had to repeat myself over and over showing that he was hardly listening either. He wrote my scan script incorrectly and when I requested a new one I was never called back. The staff never answers the phone and leaving a voicemail gets you nowhere. Will never return to this office or suggest him
