Dr. Eyre's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Eyre "I was born in Virginia but grew up in upstate New York, on the Canadian-Vermont border. My dad was a volunteer fireman in our small town and I helped him teach First Aid there, when I was a teenager. It gave me a taste of helping others and I decided to pursue a career in medicine. We moved to Arlington, Texas when I was a senior in high school and I began volunteering as a candy stripper in a local hospital. Dad worked for John Peter Smith Hospital and I eventually began volunteering there, as well. I had some incredible experiences at Peter Smith and it prompted me to apply to medical school. I spent 9 years in Lubbock, Texas for my undergraduate degree in microbiology, medical school and an internship in general surgery. I spent a year in emergency medicine at Arlington Memorial Hospital before beginning my anesthesia residency in New Orleans at Ochsner Foundation Hospital. I began private practice in San Antonio 27 years ago and have been here ever since. My introduction to medicine was through the OR and I still love it! My relationship with patients is brief but I strive to make it as pleasant as possible."
This content was provided by Dr. Eyre "I believe in caring for patients as I'd wanted to be cared for and that little things matter--like warm blankets, minimizing bodily exposure and keeping the OR atmosphere calm and quiet until the patient is asleep. I take a detailed history and use it to make decisions about what drugs to give and the potential side effects they may have. I feel strongly about "Pre-emptive Analgesia" or preventing pain BEFORE the patient wakes up by using multiple techniques and medications, while they are still asleep. Preventing nausea and post operative vomiting is also a personal goal of mine with each patient, since it tends to be the most frequent but miserable complaint after surgery. I will also speak up if I think that surgery should wait because of a condition that needs treating--safety is imperative and I take it seriously."
