Surgeon Testimonials

“I am a surgeon that serves the Arlington/Mansfield area. I have been in DFW since 1999. I have known many in the group for 18 years. I have never worked with a finer group of people. My decision to practice in a certain hospital has been persuaded by whether or not Metro would be allowed to care for my patients because no other group comes close. They have cared for my wife and me on a couple of occasions and I would never want anyone else. I highly recommend them for your care to the point that you should choose a hospital based on if they will be able to care for you then find the surgeon or ask anyone of the physicians in Metro. They will point you and your loved ones in the right direction.”

-Jason Harrison, M.D.

General Surgeon, Medical City Arlington

“I have worked with many of the anesthesiologists in this group and they are world class doctors. These are the anesthesiologists that I would ask to take care of my family any day of the week. In an emergency or during an elective case, these doctors are amazing! You cannot go wrong with choosing these group of doctors to care for you and your loved ones.”

Administrative Testimonials

“Metro Anesthesia has been a very valuable resource at Medical Center Arlington. They have helped us in ensuring that our physicians feel that they always have a provider ready and available for their cases and have been instrumental in being able to recruit new physicians to our campus. They are really good in finding high quality providers who are great clinically and have assisted us in ensuring that they have highly skilled anesthesia providers as we increased our capabilities and added new services to our facility.

Metro Anesthesia has been instrumental in improving quality at our facility not only in Anesthesia care, but in overall quality of care by having their physicians be a part of our Medical Staff and Quality Care Committees as well as also serving on our Board. They have also been key in improving our OR operations as we increase our Trauma capabilities and improve our OR throughput.

Metro Anesthesia is always willing to participate in hospital operations and quality improvement and are very collaborative in coming up with solutions which all parties are in agreement with.

We have had Metro Anesthesia ever since I first accepted the CEO position at Medical Center Arlington. They have always been supportive of our hospital and mission and are a true partner to work with to address challenges brought forward and to continue to improve quality of care in the facility.”

-Brett D. Lee

Chief Executive Officer, Tenet Dallas Market, Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Lake Pointe

“Metro is a great company to work with because all of the Metro anesthesiologists understand customer service plays a huge role in an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) setting. It is important that a good relationship exists with all parties involved in a surgery center – physicians, patients, teammates, and administration. We have a high volume center, and the anesthesiologist must have the ability to build a rapid rapport with the patient in order to keep everything moving on time; however, the patient should never feel rushed during his or her care.

In addition to providing excellent quality care to our patients, the Metro scheduling staff has relieved the worry for our team by insuring the anesthesiologists are assigned each day to cover the cases at our facility. Since the inception of our exclusive agreement in 2012, they have been 100% reliable.”

-Lynne Parris, RN, BSN, CASC

Administrator, Texas Health Surgery Center Denton

“Metro’s all-physician team takes excellent care of our patients. All of the Metro doctors are readily available to our staff and our patients, especially when we have add-ons. The Metro physicians provide reliable and full coverage. They are friendly and patient oriented, providing the best care. We enjoy working with Metro as they are extremely easy to work with for patient care.”

-Kathy Lawson, RN, MBA

Regional Director of Surgical Services, Texas General Hospital

“Metro has been the exclusive provider of anesthesia services at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Lake Pointe since 2001 and worked under an open staff model prior to that. Metro has quality physicians, excellent customer service, and is a good steward of Lake Pointe’s resources. They partner with us on quality, process improvement, and satisfaction to deliver a superior anesthesia service to our patients and surgeons.”
