I am a Board Certified anesthesiologist and have spent my career taking care of complex pediatric and cardiac patients. I also have a broad interest in patients of all kinds having anesthesia for surgery, especially if they have complicated medical conditions. As a physician, I am most gratified when patients and their families come to me knowledgeable about their condition and I know that much of that information comes from the internet. I am excited to be a resource for patients who I will not personally care for to become competent consumers in the health care environment. I am happy to discuss your upcoming procedure, medical issues that may affect your safety during the operative period, and help you plan the discussion you will have with your surgeon and anesthesiologist.
