Dr. Steven K Staires has the following 2 specialties
- Pain Medicine
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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Staires for a few years now. People can post what they would like about him but he is a very good doctor. If you are drug seeking then he is obviously not the doctor for you. He is to the point and if you follow his instructions you will not have any problems with him or the office staff. I have also had several injections with him and no problems with him there either.
He is the worst doctor ever. He doesn't Care to listen to you. He treats you like a junkie. After he gives you a high dose of pain meds he lets you go, even if he has to make up a reason. His nurses are rude and it sounds like they actually makes the decisions. If you are in pain this is not the doctor for you
This man is the most rude doctor I have ever encountered. I was referred to him for an epidural steroid injection to delay a multilevel lumbar fusion surgery. I have been in extreme pain for months and the morning of the procedure I was in unbearable pain. I heard him fuss at a nurse (belittling is more like it). When I told him I've been having pain for months, he said that's not what my previous Dr said. He treated me like a liar. I was assured before the procedure that I would not feel pain, just pressure. I was also assured the medication would provide amnesia effects and I would not remember it. Well, I felt everything and I remember everything. When I felt a crunching pain in my back, I screamed out in pain and was scolded like a child for moving. I guess that's what I get for being under 30 because he sounded a lot more gentle to an older patient. This man's bedside manner was atrocious and I would not seek his help if he were the last man on earth and I was dying.
