Specialties

Dr. Satish A Acharya 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.

One Star

Dr. Satish Acharya is, in my estimation, an extraordinary physician who managed my pain. I wish him well in his retirement but because of my selfishness would be first in line if he resumed his practice. The Ease of Appointment was meant to be NO STARS. Never had a problem with appointment making.

Physician who cares more about payment then patient! Terrible bedside manner!

Prior authorization was obtained prior to my visit and confirmed by office staff. After 40 minutes I was taken back and prepared for procedure. With my pants down he went on to question staff about authorization. Staff confirmed again.Then he decided to go after me. I assured him that I had a second an even a third insurance. That he would be paid! Still while my pants are down and front bottom totally exposed. He continued to discuss payment. Ending that I may be stuck with bill and have to pay. Finally he stormed out of room leaving the procedure room completely open and me exposed. I will never come to this office or see this physician again. So much for patient privacy and providing dignified care not to mention caring about the patient!
