Dreeben, Sharon M, MD
Dr. Sharon Dreeben is an exceptional foot and ankle specialist. With over 30 years of experience in the field. I went to her thinking I would have to get a steel plate removed from an old injury. After a few tests she determined that that would not be necessary. Just a simple cortisone shot fixed my problem and the pain immediately went away. She is an angel.... I had endured that pain for years, and now it's gone! I highly recommend her!

Ambach, Mary A, MD Pain Care of San Diego
The care here is very sketchy. If you are looking for some who is consistently good this is not the place.

Reed, John L, MD
Dr. Reed took care of my badly injured son and kept watch over him throughout his recovery, even though he only did the anesthesia for a couple of his surgeries. He kept my wife and I informed and explained what everything meant in a way we could understand without making us feel stupid like the other Docs did.

Susan Chu MD
Dr. Susan Chu has treated me for over 12 years. She is incredible at her job, has unlimited enthusiasm and incredible bedside manner. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 simply because it is tough to get an appointment but that is a Sharp Rees-Stealy issue. I would not go to anyone else for my GI care.

Murphy Mary Charlene MD
She performed my gastric bypass surgery 11 years ago. She was absolutely wonderful before during and after the process. She even tried to get my insurance to pay for removal of my access skin after losing the weight. I like everything about her and her practice. If I still lived in California she would be my personal surgeon.

Charles Chia-Lin Liu DO
I never had a better experience getting vaccine shoots and blood drawn. Went there for the medical exam which I need for my immigration process/green card. I could not eat for days and had cried ever since I heard about that I have to do all those tests. I usually get sick just walking into a doctors office. I am so happy I went to Dr. Liu. His staff took so much time talking to me when I first called. I already felt relived. They are so nice and took time chatting and making my feel comfortable. I felt very save. Amazing! Thank you very much!!
Tips & Advices
Yes, anesthesiologist complete four years of medical school plus additional training.
There are three different types of anesthesia:
  • Local anesthesia temporarily stops pain in a specific area. It is often used for local surgeries and administered via an injection and allows patients to remain conscious.
  • Regional anesthesia stops pain in a large portion of the body, such as an arm or leg, while the patient remains conscious. Major types of regional anesthesia include:
    • Peripheral nerve blocks: An anesthetic is injected near a bundle of nerves that transmit sensations from a specific area. For example, an anesthesiologist would administer a nerve block near a patient's arm to numb that entire area, allowing the surgeon to operate.
    • Spinal anesthetic: The anesthetic is injected into the lower back near the spinal cord, causing the lower body to go numb. This type is most commonly used for orthopedic procedures and surgery in the rectal, pelvic, or abdominal regions.
    • Epidural anesthetic: This is similar to a spinal anesthetic but is used primarily for labor/childbirth, and surgery of the lower limbs. Instead of an injection, the medication is administered through a thin catheter inserted into the area near the spinal cord.
  • General anesthesia, which is either inhaled through a breathing mask/tube or administered via an IV line,  causes the patient to fall completely unconscious.
Common procedures anesthesiologists perform include:
  • Administering and managing anesthesia
  • Managing and addressing changes in important life functions during surgery, including heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing
  • Diagnosing and treating medical problems that arise during and immediately after surgery
Anesthesiologist do not have to be board certified, although approximately 75 percent of them are. They must be licensed to practice within their state, however, and can obtain additional specialty certifications in critical care and pain management.
Procedural sedation, previously known as conscious sedation, is a process where a patient is given a sedative that reduces discomfort and awareness but does not result in a full sedation. This allows the patient to undergo uncomfortable procedures while still maintaining control over his or her breathing.
