Specialties

Dr. Richard B Thoma 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.

Don't waste your time!

My wife and I are disabled and suffer from chronic pain we have been trying to find a doctor who can treat us as we just moved here from New Mexico. Dr. Thoma was very eager to meet us and made an appointment for us as soon as he was able to open. We went in, he examined us. No prescription for us. He said that he would call us back in 2 weeks but it was a month later before we got to get in then he told us there wasn't anything he could do for us and sent us home! Don't bother with this guy I could care less he just wants your insurance!

Even though I have a dime sized tumor in my spine he had his rude nurse come in and inform me I didn't qualify for pain mgt. His nurse also looked at my wife and said I wouldn't want my husband on pain meds cause it affects bedroom activities.
