our health | BEST BEDSIDE MANNER AWARDS Allergy & Immunology Anesthesiology Allergy and Immunology encompasses a broad array of diagnoses, ranging from nasal and sinus problems and severe food or bee sting allergy to recurrent infections due to sinus disease, immune deficiency and asthma conditions. Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and total care of the surgical patient before, during and after surgery. { first place } Ann O. Wilhite, MD Michael Z.

This process is enabled by bedside manner of the skill to acquire the information needed to care for our patients." "Healthcare is now driven by policies and economics. My interaction with the patient is more important now than it has ever been. I try to give each patient my full attention when I assess them. Knowing that their anesthesiologist has listened to their concerns goes a long way to alleviate a patient's anxiety, especially before surgery or a procedure." No two patients' needs are the same and everyone has different expectations. The only way I can determine what's important to them, and how I can best help them, is to get to know each patient on a personal level. It's very important to me that I have that connection before I can feel that I have truly helped them. — Michael Z. Blumberg, MD, MSHA — Ann O.
