JM Starkman, MD

(U.S.) Board-Certified anesthesiologist also certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. I can answer questions related and specific to clinical anesthesia issues, problems, concerns and methods--both pediatric and adult. This includes matters that are strictly anesthesia in nature and also in other related medical specialties that impact various patient management decisions (e.g. asthmatic undergoing surgery) during or around the time of an anesthetic. I can answer questions about becoming a physician and specifically an anesthesiologist, and practicing anesthesiology. I am not a researcher or academic, so questions so-related are for someone else. I can tell you what a nightmare government involvement in medicine has been and will continue to be as it escalates.
