Dr. Gunalan’s personalized approach to patient care is all in a day’s work. The chance to interact with those he’s about to treat is his favorite part of being an anesthesiologist. With one part compassion, one part conversation and another part care, Dr. Gunalan makes his patients feel at ease if they are anxious. His years of training have revealed something they don’t teach in school — what patients want most is to be cared for by someone they can relate to. It’s why he spends his time getting to know all of them, hearing their stories and establishing common ground.
He spends more time with the patients before and after surgery, making sure that the patients do not feel at any point of time and managing the vitals at excellency.
