Patient Care Philosophy

I like to make patients feel reassured when I meet them in the Pre-Anesthesia clinic or prior to their surgery. I encourage patients to get as much information as possible about their anesthetic experience and after effects from friends, family, internet and from physicians. I believe that a well-informed patient is best prepared for the stress of anesthesia and surgery.

Personal Interests

Hiking, backpacking and kayaking.

Clinical Interests

Primarily in airway related anesthetic challenges, pre-anesthesia clinic and preparation of complex cases.
