As brendaks stated you want an experienced anesthesiologist..
If you are lucky to find one with 10 years experience great! If you are outside major metropolitan area you may not have that luxury. I live in the largest city in my state which is also the state capitol. Sadly it doesn't qualify as a true metropolis.
I had to move to Baltimore to get treatment for my depression because there isn't the mental health infrastructure. Now I'm back where I grew up because needed the family support after I had a blackout induced by my depression while driving.
So back to my point of this post. [B][I][U]Make sure its an MD anesthesiologist that is at least a specialist physician, no fellowships or below...[/U][/I][/B]
I had a LMNP try to do trigger point injections once. Never again! Teaching hospitals will have fellowships, basically full doctors working on their specialization. I've had success with trigger point injections done by a fellowship but insisted on having a full specialist supervising in case he needed to step in. [B]But I wouldn't trust a fellowship for basal nerve blocks.
So far I have had 9 basal branch nerve blocks. [B]First one caused my other 3 back quadrants to over compensate so since then Ive insisted that they do my quadrants 2 at a time in symmetrical pairs[/B]. So then the next 4 were done in pairs as an evaluation for RFA therapy. So then I had 2 RFAs in my lower back a week apart. They can't do RFAs in pairs since each procedure takes 90 minutes. Then 4 more basal branch nerve blocks in my upper back before they did the 2 RFAs in my upper back.
