Patient Care Philosophy

I enjoy working collaboratively with patients to develop the best anesthetic plan possible. Fundamentally, the anesthesiologist acts as the patient's advocate during surgery. We use our expertise and experience to assess the patient's needs and use that information to formulate that plan. The "best" plan for anesthesia will differ greatly depending on the patient's medical condition and mindset and also the surgical considerations.
