Dr. Darling believes in providing a combination of evidenced based, patient specific and compassionate care. She believes that to provide the safest and most stress-free anesthetic, each plan must be individualized to the needs of the patient and their disease processes. By doing this, the anxiety surrounding the perioperative period can be minimized.
Dr. Darling is board certified in anesthesiology with subspecialty certification in pediatric anesthesiology. She has interests and experience in anesthesia for congenital heart disease, regional anesthesia and pediatric pain management.
