About

Bio

I have practiced anesthesiology both in academic and private practice settings for more than 25 years. My clinical interests are in anesthesia for thoracic surgery, esophageal surgery and neurosurgery, although I also enjoy delivering anesthesia for outpatient surgery. My academic interests focus on healthcare economics and provider payment policies. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling with my wife, photography and scuba diving.

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.
