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.
- Pain Management
A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.

Dr. DuBose treated me with kindness and compassion. I had taken the final office visit of the day. Upon entering, he sat down, cross-legged, on the exam table and took off his shoes. He was informal and comforting. He would tell me jokes too. I have suffered from chronic pain, major depression and Marfans Syndrome. Dr. DuBose took all these (and others) diagnosis under consideration during my treatment. He even had his staff, Amanda, locate another specialist to treat the depression. This doctor literally saved my life. It is so very saddening, to me, the he has ceased his practice due to an ongoing medical condition. PLEASE, DR. DUBOSE GET WELL SOON! You are a once in lifetime experience in compassion, love and quality of care. My only wish is that he would contact me either as a friend or to inform me he is practicing again.
I had the most incredible experience with this office. The physician and his staff made me feel like a real person and not just a number. When I came back for my procedure I was greeted with warmth and smiles. Dr. DuBose was tnder and understanding of my ongoing chronic illness. He really listened and I truely feel that he cared and almost felt my pain.
Love this man! Dr. DuBose is the most caring and compassionate physician I have ever met. He listened to me and took time to assess everything that was going on. Not only did he perscribe me medications to help with the pain, he taught ways to relieve the pain without drugs. Dr. DuBose changed my life and my pain does not have control over me anymore. I definitely recommend him to any sufferers of pain!
