Philosophy Of Medicine

“Having grown up in Grafton and Grand Forks, it is an honor to provide anesthetics for friends, neighbors and fellow community members. I personalize each anesthetic to reduce nausea, control pain with reduced narcotics, and watch over every organ system before, during and after surgery. Collaborating with Altru’s surgeons, primary care doctors and medical subspecialists, we provide world-class anesthesia to 12,000 patients every year.”
