Our Patients' Experience in Anesthesiology

What do our patients say about their anesthesia experience?


 Dr. Nejim was excellent. I've always had a problem with anesthesia and he listened to my concerns & was compassionate. He also visited me after surgery to make sure I was ok
 I was especially impressed with the anesthesiologist's decision to alter the usual procedure given the special circumstances of hardware in my back.
 You must know that Dr. Beckman - was wonderful. After numerous surgeries, this is the first time I did not have a reaction to the anesthesia.
 Dr. Roch is clear & professional with a human touch.
 Dr. Paroli was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. I really was impressed and thankful for his care.
 Dr. Ho spent extra time discussing the procedure and expectations while we waited for the surgeon to finish a prior case.
 Dr. Kahn, my anesthesiologist, stood out amongst an excellent staff. He was clear, agreed to my request to be awake during the procedure, and talked to me the whole time. A genuinely caring bedside manner - one of the best I've ever experienced.
 The anesthesiologist was great with his explanation of how he was going to administer the anesthesia. I had never had a complete nerve block on my arm before, no complaints whatsoever!
 Dr. Andrew Lee was very thorough in explaining what he would do, my pain control was exceptional.
 Dr. Wagner was great! No anesthesia issues & explained everything to me!
 Loved Dr. Quinn - he was very caring, gave clear and concise answers, and was very soft spoken and charming I must say.
 Dr. Gordon was engaging, informative, confident, conversational & funny - all of which helped with pre-procedure nerves. No wonder he won a teaching award twice.
 Dr. Lin provided wonderful care before & after surgery.
 Dr. DiMeo was great, he explained the procedure, answered our questions, spoke to my wife immediately after surgery & also saw me before I was discharged from HSS.
 Dr. Garvin gave thorough explanations of the procedures and I had every confidence in him.
 Dr. Urmey was understanding & thoroughly explained what was to occur.
 Dr. YaDeau really listened to and heard my concerns about no narcotics, and did excellent work with nerve block.
 The anesthesiologist was awesome; we had a family history of troubled anesthesia experience and he took extra time to speak with me and showed concern for my well being. Loved him.
 Dr. David Lee was very kind & reassuring.
 Dr. LaSala spoke with me prior to surgery, and I let him know I have had difficulty waking after anesthesia in the past, as well as normally very nauseated after anesthesia and that I am allergic to the most commonly used anti-nausea medication. He listened to my concerns and as a result I woke from anesthesia normally and didn't experience any nausea. His superb care allowed me to have a shorter hospital stay!
