Dr. Thomas P Zavitsanos 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.

Dr. refuses to see again.

Saw Dr. Zazitsanos briefly at request of heart surgeon 2 yrs. ago at hospital, never been to office, or follow up. Several doctors referred me to him, but nursing home I'm in kept cancelling pain management appts. Now I'm told there is a "flag" on my "account" saying "don't see her". I never was in their office, have no "account". I don't know why he refuses to see me, never had fight, etc. I called and asked but they won't tell me, I have a right to know! I did nothing wrong to them or anyone else. The nursing home probably said something or lied, etc. They have humiliated me, ruined my name and reputation, credibility, and I just found out Dr. Truitt refuses to see me too. I only saw him briefly few yrs. ago too. I don't know what's going on but this is highly unprofessional and inhumane to treat a sick patient like this. I am a chronic pain patient with DDD spine every level from C3 down to thoracic and lumbar, bulging disks, nerve damage, compressed spine, stenosis, TMJ, DDD knees, rotator cuffs, etc., and spinal cord injury after being attacked 5 yrs. ago, and put in wheelchair. To be treated like this is is wrong! I deserve better and have a right to know why these doctors refuse to see me! I have severe pain and desperate for proper pain meds. that I have not been getting at nursing home or hospital. I'd appreciate a reply. Sheryl Schwartz
