Our team is growing! We recently added eight new board-certified physicians in our Orange and Fullerton divisions. Many of the new doctors are fellowship trained in pediatric anesthesia or in regional anesthesia and acute pain management.
Dr. Edward Lee, our lead physician recruiter said, “The addition of these incredible physicians signifies another step in our constant effort to give our patients in Southern California access to the absolute best possible care. Today, Allied is more than 100 doctors strong. And every one of these doctors, including our eight new anesthesiologists, have passed through one of the most rigorous vetting processes in America—a process designed to filter out all but the top one percent. We couldn’t be prouder to welcome these fine doctors to the Allied Anesthesia team.”
