General Anesthesia


One of my most important beliefs as a physician is that every patient should be an informed advocate for their own health. Verywell’s mission to provide accessible, accurate health information to the public aligns with my goal to equip each patient with the knowledge necessary to make educated health decisions for themselves and their families.
