Specialties

Dr. Stuart C King 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.

Poor communication with patients when issue arises

Helpful and Skilled

I have been Dr. King's patient for over 3 years. I have a host of orthopedic and nerve related problems which he has helped me with. He has a very comprehensive approach, great diagnostic skills and strategies for managing my pain. He does advanced procedures not done elsewhere. He has never implied that my pain was a psych issue although he is sensitive to the challenges of coping with chronic pain. Dr King does run late but he is super busy. Sometimes he seems frazzled and his bedside manner can sometimes be a bit off. I find it helps to be organized in knowing what you want to address in the visit. Over time I have found him a very invested doctor in patient care, he has an empathetic attitude and seems to be a very kind man. I love that he takes a comprehensive approach to patient care and takes into account other health issues I have. I would recommend him highly and just advise others to be patient with him the beginning. One more thing, his staff for the most part are very nice and helpful
