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.

Well, I think Dr. Cohen knows his stuff. He was able to rule out a diagnosis that the doctors in my home state were telling me I had (turns out, I don't, and have had it confirmed by another experienced physician in DC). He did NOT offer great treatment options, but he did promptly refer me to the other two tests that could be of use in understanding my condition further. I was specifically impressed with his Fellow, who was very helpful and helped Dr. Cohen understand my case. Some would be put off by Dr. Cohen, but I felt that he was simply straight forward and doing his job. He isn't the most friendly guy, simply telling me that I might be SOL and be in the 5-15% of people who get stuck in pain after a bad surgery. But, if I had better test results prior to the appt. I have no doubt he would have offered me more information. He was a worthwhile person to see in an attempt to gain another opinion on my diagnosis.
Dr. Cohen and his band of "keystone cops" remind me of teenagers on cocaine. He and his "crew" had a single minded, glassy-eyed focus on the "study" they are involved in and zero regard for the fact that they are dealing with a human being as opposed to a piece of meat or a pin cushion. There was zero regard for the fact that I am a customer and a patient and that poking someone with a sharp piece of mental for the sake of getting equipment in place properly is not OK - no warning, no careful attention to the patient, just a strong jab and hold and when I complained, Dr. Cohen made excuses and justified the behavior. I have an extremely high tolerance for pain and this was awful even for me. I would feel very afraid for someone with a low pain tolerance. I am very surprised that that Dr. Cohen is allowed to practice at John's Hopkins.
My spouse had thoracic and lumbar fusions late last year. He was referred to"pain management", Dr Stephen P. Cohen at Johns Hopkins. Our insurance deemed hIs procedure, radio frequency ablation, as experimental. So the first words out if his mouth when he comes in "I don't think I can help you, you need rehabilitation." HE NEVER EVEN LOOKED AT THE NEW MRI!!!! Waste of JH resources and a waste of our time!
