- 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.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
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.

Dont make an appt. with Summit Pain Specialist thinking you will see Dr. Geiger for anything but a procedure! Yes, he he does have an excellent, caring & compassionate bedside manner. I was terrified of getting my steroid shot but he re assured me and comforted me, not starting the procudure untill I was ready and i was already in the procedure room. His Staff on the other hand, is so awful, rude, unattentive and un cooperative. Just dont want people to get confused as to what you may get if you want his to be your doctor.
Dr. Geiger is the absolute best there is! He has an outstanding bedside manner and is very good at taking time to pinpoint the exact location of where the pain is coming from in order to administer the type of injection that will help me the most. I've been to a few other pain doctors who were good too, but no one else will ever compare to the treatment from Dr. Geiger!
