Greetings. It has been my privilege to serve the fine citizens of New Orleans, LA and Louisville, KY during my 10 years of practicing private practice clinical anesthesiology. I have been board certified by the ABA since 2014. My clinical practice locations have been multi-disciplinary in scope and have conferred to me a vast body of knowledge pertaining to the practice of anesthesiology, except for pain management. Though proficient, I currently do not practice cardio-thoracic, obstetric, or pediatric anesthesiology. Therefore, I will graciously decline invitations to offer guidance associated with such cases. I have served in leadership roles and participated in committees dedicated to quality enhancement throughout my time in practice. My personal areas of clinical interest are ERAS & interventional neuroanesthesia. Thank you in advance for considering my contributions to your case.
