Why did you choose Anesthesiology? To me, anesthesia is a mini intensive care unit with sole focus on one patient. The added benefit is direct interaction/adjustments of anything from central and arterial lines to ventilators. Constantly manipulating physiology in real-time. No need to place orders in a computer for someone else to follow. Additionally, I enjoy the variety of cases and patients with ability to sub-specialize in peds, cards, pain, etc.
Favorite weekend trips in the area? As a Michigan native, I am partial to "Up North." The west coast of the state offers a number of beach towns on the way up to the Traverse City and Mackinaw City. Tons of inland lakes for fishing, sandy beaches on Lake Michigan, golf courses, and historic landmarks to visit. The fall color changes offers beauty in the drive itself.
