“The practice of anesthesiology requires combining cerebral and manual skills to provide acute patient care in a variety of circumstances,” Dr. Gill shared. When it comes to direct patient care, Dr. Gill said open communication with the surgeon and team is an important factor. “Treating a set of signs and symptoms, while simultaneously diagnosing an underlying problem and communicating with the surgeon and team, is what makes the practice of anesthesiology unique and exciting,” Dr. Gill said. “It is why I love my job.”
Dr. Gill served 14 years on active duty with the United States Air Force. He was a flight surgeon for the 99th Reconnaissance U-2 Squadron with six overseas deployments and a human factors expert for two U.S. Air Force formal Accident Investigation Boards. Afterward, Dr. Gill served as a staff anesthesiologist for five years at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, where he became the Anesthesia Flight commander, then Chief of Anesthesia, deploying twice to the Middle East and Central America.
