Specialties

Dr. Stephen V Dreskin 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.

Horrible and emotionally painful experience

I was suffering when I went it to see him. I had gutted through for months without narcotics but could not bear it anymore. I was having trouble at work, my household duties failed and I could not sleep due to pain. My pain originated from huge doses of radiation because of tumor in my hip area. It also affected my back which keeps deteriorating. His nurse was beyond hateful. They accused me of lying although I was telling the truth. They also told me lies about my medical record. If he is so burned out and not going to give narcotics or treat patients pain, he needs to get out of pain management.

Wrote wrong prescription.

My wife just left your office and was given a prescription that she is allergic to. We were called and Nurse Jenkins wants us to make another trip to the office to return that one for the correct one. This is unacceptable and should never happen. Also she was told she could not drink a cup of wine to keep the Passover Service once a year and should find another church! This I believe is religious discrimination and begs for a law suit if she is refused service for this reason.

Dr. Dreskin was Helpful..but staff..yikes

I had been going to TVP for a year and a half. I consider myself a decent human being. I worked in Education for 22 yrs before my acdf spinal fusion that disabled me. As with most after a while you start seeing the P. Assistant, well mine was Derek Rigby.. he started out ok,,,but then they just want to get rid of you. I was in a lot of pain and lost insurance coverage for this clinic due to the changes in Obamacare, I tried the cannabinoid oil before deciding to go back to TVP..well guess what THC showed in my urine. first strike! The several months later my insurance denied my claim for pain meds due to needed a review from the doc since it had been a yr, well didn't find this out until at the pharmacy and on my last pill...it was wed at 5:00 well I call them the next day and I was told to make what pills I had left do me...well I had 0 pills, so I checked with pharmacy every day, and called dr office, and called BCBS every day and I finally got my meds on Sunday...4 days without pain meds..well my husband had been a patiend there (he is a quadriplegic and decided he no longer needed his pain med and was seeking other avenues, Dereck told him to keep the pain meds and use them if he needed then and come back if he ever needed him. ..I had no choice but to borrow from him until I got mine refilled...of no fault of my own. Well guess what I was kicked out of my pain mgt and thru to the dogs for taking illegal drugs!!! What else was I supposed to do suffer excruciating pain....very heartless people there!! Never in my wildest dreams would I think id be treated this way.
