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.

Not only can this doctor not speak with proper English grammar, in addition he is an egotistical maniac. On the day of my surgery he thought he knew better than me what my issue was and he made some kind of idiotic comment about me "being on the ventilator and remaining there". Needless to say, after such a comment, I did not want him anywhere near me and I had to postpone my surgery and reschedule.
