Every year, The Irving Chamber of Commerce Women’s Alliance, hosts a networking luncheon with a health panel that consists of some of the best doctors around the Irving area. This year, the theme was “A New Year, A New You”, and provided information on Women’s Health along with tips to help encourage women to be proactive with their life. Amongst the panel’s very talented doctors was our very own, Dr. Jamie A. Sunny.
Dr. Sunny impressed the crowd with her charismatic personality as she gave insight to the world of Anesthesia. She spoke about how Anesthesia has improved over the years, how much safer it has become, about drugs like Propofol and how it received a bad rap due to the Michael Jackson incident, and when and where you may meet an Anesthesiologist. Also, she stressed the importance of following pre-surgical guidelines, telling the Anesthesiologist the types of medication they take, and being open about their health history.
Dr. Sunny earned her B.A. in Biology from the University of Texas in Austin and graduated with her M.D. from the University of Texas at Houston Medical School. She remained at the University of Texas at Houston to complete her anesthesiology residency where she was elected Chief Resident during her final year. After completing residency in 2008 Dr. Sunny joined Metro Anesthesia. Dr. Sunny is board certified and is a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Texas Society of Anesthesiologists.
This year’s event was a sold out success with such an impressive panel. Speaking and answering questions alongside Dr.Sunny were Cynthia Mace-Motta, D.O. – Obstetrics & Gynecology, Ed Clifford, M.D. – Breast Cancer, Doug Overbeck, M.D. – Cardiology, Mabel Zevallos, M.D. – Gastroenterology, and Nicole Snyder, D.C. – Chiropractic. Metro Anesthesia is proud to have Dr. Sunny represent us and volunteer her time in such a meaningful way.
