About Arthur

I originally became an engineer but quickly realized I did not want to keep moving my family due to work obligations. My father was an obstetrician, which had sparked an intrigue in medicine. I thoroughly enjoy pharmacology and physiology. I also enjoy the immediate response to medicine that anesthesia delivers. Becoming an anesthesiologist and raising my family in this community has truly been a blessing.
