Specialties

Dr. Ryan C Pollina 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.

I saw Dr. P today for the first time to talk about my chronic pain. His staff was friendly and helpful, (even getting some MRI reports from another provider). The doctor himself is very friendly and knowledgeable about different kinds of pain management, like nerve blocks. He didn't just give me drugs, but he spent all the time I needed explaining and answering all my questions. I felt like I was the only patient there (of course I wasn't). My appointment started right on time and I was only there for about 45 minutes total.

Great physician

Dr. Pollina is a one of a kind physician, because of his great physician skills, bedside manners, and goes over the treatment plan very thoroughly of what to expect. I was referred to him by my surgeon post-operatively, and I felt at ease right away the first time I met him during a consult. He is very own to earth, he is very educated, and well trained too. I am blessed to be under his care. I highly recommend Dr. Pollina to anyone for pain management.
