Specialties

Dr. Steven K Brockman has the following 2 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.

Very Knowledgeable Doctor

The physician's care that Dr. Brockman has provided to me has been helpful in every way. His ability to comprehend the many different and complex medical conditions I deal with has been very reassuring. I'm very protective of my health and have been pleased from the onset of my work with him that he seems to share that attitude.

One Star

Dr brockman Last week I kept my appt, but when I got there, one of the "new girls" turned me away saying they didnt take my insurance. As I had an appt and kept it, the month of jan, they saw me, read my cards and treated me. I have used humana for over 5 yrs and have been your patient for almost as long. I was left hanging, ms and heart condition to go thru withdrawl. As it sent me into a flareup of ms, I have been helpless. Yesterday I recvd a registered letter from carolina comp on thier letterhead, saying you dropped me due to violation of contract. I have niether violated any part of my contract with you nor with cc. I called today, got the same girl and she told me it was because I was nasty...you know me...I asked her why she didnt take it when they did the month before. When she didnt have an answer, we left..what else was there for us to do...now they are holding back my files (agreed to go to my primary dr sidhu there in shelby. I would have crawled thru broken glass for either of you. Your office turned me away in time of need. Isnt the first line in the "first do no harm".

I find him very helpful & Nice

I moved from another state & granted the 1st visit took lil time to get was lil frustrating but he's only Dr there so sure he's busy,the 1st apt took awhile he asked me plenty of questions,listened to me & still dose,I do what he say's State Rules,Don't miss Apt's. & had no trouble,the 1 thing I do worry about is when he leaves at some point & when that comes were all in trouble & hope won't need worry anytime soon,but I like him & happy to find a Dr who cares,it took long enough..

Horrible bedside manner

I had rather suffer than go back to this man. Someone stated in a previous review that he does not have a compassionate bone in his body, this is so very true. I wouldn't let him treat my animals. He will ask a question but before you can answer he is telling you to shut up he has to say certain things or he will not get a paycheck. I guess his paycheck means more to him than his patients. He tried to tell me I had morphine and hydrocodone in my system when I haven't taken anything other than what is prescribed to me. This man is too busy herding people in and out like cattle and doesn't care one bit about what the patient has to say. I would not recommend this man to my worse enemy.
