"I recieved a bi-lateral hip injection with synvic and am feeling much better already.Dr.
greeted me in the proceedure room with a big smile on his face and a warm hand shake. He explained what he was getting ready to do and kept me informed ofhis progress along the way. The whole thing took about 30 minutes and was virtuallypainless. After he was finished Dr.
spent time with me explaining my recovery anddiscussed my hip issues and future plans for treatment.

"It went as described above. I had to have two nerve blocks to determine if she was in the correct place. She and I both knew after the first nerve block that she was indeed in the correct place but MEDICARE demanded that a second be performed which in my opinion was a total waste of taxpayer's money because Dr.
was in the right place the first time.

Questions to ask your anesthesiologist

If you need surgery, you will probably get anesthesia to put you to sleep. Make sure to ask your anesthesiologist these questions for a successful surgery.

Who's putting you to sleep? What you should know about your anesthesiologist

Most patients who have surgery don't choose their anesthesiologist, but these doctors play a larger role in keeping them alive than the surgeon.

Angie's List medical licensing database

Use this Angie's List database to find the website of your state's medical licensing agency, through which you can confirm that a medical provider is licensed and whether the provider has any disciplinary actions cited on his or her record.

Anesthesia safe for patients

While anesthesia is safe, ask a health care provider about their training and experience. Also ask who will monitor your vital signs during the procedure.

"I like the nurses that do the work. I think they are very good. They also run tons of promotions. Some are for some expensive facials and such and you get them at a really good price. Their marketing seems to have a way of getting you to buy things you

"Dr.
Durham Anesthesiologists Provider Name Locked
came in to discuss my request for local rather than general anesthesia for this surgery. She was very open to discussion of options, and after we talked for a few minutes, she agreed to local anesthesia, with the option to move to general if I needed to.
The surgery went very well, and since I was very relaxed by sedatives I don't remember most of it. I do remember being aware during closure and speaking to both the surgeon and Dr.

. I had absolutely no pain. She was very attentive and stayed by my side the entire time. She also had me moved to post-op 2 immediately after surgery since I was awake and speaking. This saved the primary post-op charge as well. She personally checked on me again before I left.
The fact that she took the time from her very busy schedule to understand my wishes and go above and beyond to accomodate them meant a lot to me.
I would ask for Dr.

if I again had the need for anesthesia services.

"Although it is a 65 mile round trip for me, I am very pleased with the way I am being treated at OSS. I seldom have to wait past my appointment time, nor do I wait long, once I am in an examining room, to be seen. The staff are all very cordial and friendly as well as professional. They truly seem to listen to everything I have to say and explain their diagnosis in terms I can understand. After several months of trying epidurals and physical therapy for my back and leg problems, surgery was recommended.A lumbar laminectomy/discectomy operation was preformed on May 30, 2012, and so far all is healing well. I was told it was a text book operation with no problems. I am healing well with no complications so far. It is still too early for total results, but I notice most of the numbness and tingling has went away in my legs. I look forward to the neck/upper back operation to hopefully relieve the pain and discomfort in my neck and head that I continue to experience."

pain issues. I began seeing Matrix in 2004 and they have helped me gain more of my life back. I have enjoyed being seen by these people throughout the years and would recomend them to anyone for treatment."

"This is what happened. He sedated me. I would not use him again. I
Durham Anesthesiologists Provider Name Locked
’t feel like he involved me in the decision making about my pain management. I felt like he was more interested in making money than caring about what I wanted to do about my health. I did not want sedation. He refused to not have an additional person there, and charged for sedation. His billing department is very difficult to work with. They were non responsive, and they over charged me. They tried to bind the account of his assistant with his account. It took me four, and a half months to get a refund. It was very stressful to me. I would not recommend him."

"He doesn't push drugs. If you have some problems and surgery can me dangerous, he will find the nerve that is creating the problem. He will cut it off from the brain so it will stop reporting to the brain. He does pain management, epidural, acupuncture, and massage. He has another doctor in his office. He is the most practical. He will prescribe pain medication if they are very carefully managed. He is very respectful and kind. The only communication problem is with a language

"After a very harrowing 12 hours, I finally was able to get ambulance transport to
Durham Anesthesiologists Provider Name Locked
. I felt safe once I was in their ER. I spent 3 days in their ICU, and the care was highly personalized, professionally and compassionately delivered, and I was made to feel as comfortable as possible given the circumstances. Everybody who worked there seemed quite focused on their job and how it could contribute to patient recovery, from the doctors and ICU nurses to Housekeepers and the people who delivered my meals. I'm fussy when it comes to hospital and medical care, having grown up in a medical family, and

is one hospital that I will always recommend.

"Dr

was my anesthesiologist for surgery on March 9, 2012. A nurse earlier tried to get an IV started for him but for some reason used an area on the outside of my left arm. When I got to the operating room he looked for the IV port but didn't see one. I told him the nurse tried in an area where she could not get the IV in and I showed him where my best

to knock me out for my surgery. I felt no pain and woke up with no problem.
