Dr. Richard L Vera has the following 2 specialties
- 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.

I'm always in and out of my appointments and procedures in good time. This place runs like a well-oiled machine! They are very efficient, and Dr Vera is excellent!
Dr Vera and his staff are amazing. They make you feel comfortable immediately and listen to your concerns all the time. I have had pain injections in the spine several times and the staff is so fast and efficient it is great. Even berybesrly in the morning everyone is so upbeat, and friendly. I will recommend Dr. Vera anytime.
Extremely pleased! Dr. Vera administered lower spine injections for my herniated disc. In short, he (and all of his support staff) were exceptional. It has been over a month, and although I will probably return for one additional injection procedure (not at all uncommon), my lower back pain was basically eliminated, until I lifted a heavy object a couple of weeks ago. I went through 2 rounds of injections approximately 8 years ago, and I can say unequivocally, that Dr. Vera's professional treatment and bedside manner was far superior to the one that administered treatment 8 years ago.
