I noted that you commented that a person would be "better off" if they had an MD performing anesthesia. I have to point out that the research simply doesn't back that up. Nurse anesthetists have been practicing anesthesia in this country since the Civil War. In many hospitals, you consult with an anesthesiologist but your care is given by a nurse anesthetist. I'm sure it isn't your intention to spread misinformation. Anesthesia is very safe when provided by a certified anesthesia provider, whether that person is a physician or a nurse anesthetist.
