As an anesthesiologist, I find listening to my patient's fears or concerns the most important way of developing trust and calming the patient prior to surgery. I like to give a detailed explanation of what to expect from the start of my care through the post-operative period because I believe that knowledge is power. Giving patients a sense of empowerment in their anesthetic care helps improve outcomes and the overall patient experience.
