Specialties

Dr. Raafat N Mattar 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.

4+ years. Be honest with him, and he takes care of you!

I have been seeing Dr. Mattar for 4+ years. After my previous butcher surgeon, I requested a pain management doctor. I was luckily referred to Dr. Mattar thru my workmans comp. When I was reading reviews, I was on the skeptical side. But he has never once argued with me about managing my pain. And in turn, I am graciously allowing him to try procedures that could possibly bring down my pain levels without medications. He is a conpassionate doctor. If you are truthful and do what he asks, he will make sure you arent suffering.

When I first saw Dr Mattar, he was kind and thorough, I followed his advice and guidance and my back started healing and my pain radically decreased. I am on my way to being completely pain free. I would recommend Dr Mattar to anyone who was ready to get their chronic pain taken care of.

Epidural Injections

After a MRI report that showed 4 bulging discs in my neck, I knew at that I didn't want surgery at 43. My family physician told me that I needed to see a pain management physician so I took his advice and saw Dr. Mattar in Long Beach, CA. His bedside manner is outstanding. I was seeking help and not pain meds. When I first saw Dr. Mattar, I could barely turn my neck from one side to another. The very next day, he gave me an epidural and after three days, I began to notice a big difference in my range of motion. After a follow-up, he decided that I needed another one. I took his advice and during my exam after the second epidural, my pain level was a zero on a scale from 0-10. I know for certain that Dr. Mattar just has a gift for knowing where to put the injections. If you're just looking for meds because you're addict, please don't waste your time. He is an excellent doctor and I would not hesitate to see him again.
