Specialties

Dr. Thomas M Ratino 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.

One Star

I went to Dr. Ratino for 2 years. He had great bedside manor at first. then he put a simulator in my back in the wrong place! It never worked right and every time I called mectronics to have them fix it; it was $30. I would call the next day to say it wasn't fixed and got tough luck; unless I wanted to see them again for another $30. The worse thing was I fell and broke my back in 3 places. I told him I had fallen and was in severe pain and needed a x-ray; he said "I was fine and didn't need a x-ray". After that I had a big lump on my back; he said "he didn't know what it was and didn't give me a x-ray". The pain was unbelievable!! The lump was the simulator sticking out of my back; due to the fall. The simulator that HE PUT IN WRONG PLACE. I would not recommend him to anyone! When I went to a surgeon and new pain doctor; "both told me the same; I broke my back in 3 places and the box was in the wrong place!!"
