About

Bio

I am a board certified physician anesthesiologist in private practice. We work in an anesthesia care team model, in which we supervise and direct the care of anesthetists, taking care of dozens of patients every day having procedures and surgeries of all kinds. I am involved in all preoperative care of our patients, from pre-operative screening and medical clearance, throughout the procedure and anesthetic, the recovery room period, and often even managing acute pain during the hospitalization. I also cover obstetric anesthesia, including a high risk maternal-fetal program, and our intensive care unit. In addition to a full anesthesia practice, I am active in healthy lifestyle and wellness promotion. I believe the best medicine is preventive medicine and living well!

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Mild GI bug likely: it's likely just something you ate that didn't agree, could be specific foods or just a little stomach bug. also sound dehydrated. keto diet is fine. sometimes lots of veggies (fiber) and/or legumes could cause loose stool. unlikely anything severe unless it persists. drink fluids and get back to your regular (keto) diet slowly. if concerned about specific foods, trial them individually

Avoid certain drugs: Malignant hyperthermia is a genetic abnormality passed through families that causes a severe reaction to a few drugs used in anesthesia. If you know you have it, you should get a medic alert bracelet, be sure to tell your doctors in future surgeries, and have your family checked as well. You will need to avoid the inhalational anesthetics and the depolarizing paralytic succinylcholine.

Fully unconscious: General anesthesia means you will be completely asleep, unable to respond to commands, unable to feel, hear or remember, and usually will have some kind of breathing device placed in your airway (throat). An anesthesiologist will monitor you closely and give you medications to keep you "asleep" and comfortable, keep you alive while operating on you, and most importantly wake you up!
