Specialties

Dr. Sarah L Buenviaje-Smith has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

Great dr and staff!!

I have been seeing Dr Smith for about a year now and I couldn't imagine changing Drs. I recently changed my primary but made sure I kept the same medical group so I can continue seeing her. She is very compassionate and takes her time. I was so nervous to get my 1st set of back injections and she really helped me feel comfortable. Her staff is also great. I find if you like a dr the staff sucks but that's not the case with her office. They are all amazing and do what they can to make you comfortable. Even after a back injection the still can make you smile! Great office!!!

Office experience

I took my grandmother for a consultation with Dr.Smith and it was by far one of the most greatest experiences she has had with any doctor and her staff. She takes her time with her patients to make sure they get the best care they possibly can, she really cares about her patients and goes out of her way for them. The staff there is also very nice they greeted us when we first got there with welcoming smiles. My grandmother also was prescribed medication that she had trouble getting her full amount cause it wasn't covered by iehp when I called I spoke with the ladies in the front office and they got right on it and did a per for her so she could have her medications with no problems. Overall great experience and I will definitely refer people to see Dr.Smith and her amazing staff :)
