Who's putting you to sleep? What you should know about your anesthesiologist

Most patients who have surgery don't choose their anesthesiologist, but these doctors play a larger role in keeping them alive than the surgeon.

Questions to ask your anesthesiologist

If you are conscious, it's important to be honest with your anesthesiologist and share certain aspects of your medical history to avoid a bad reaction from the anesthesia. (Photo courtesy of the American Society of Anesthesiologists)

If you need surgery, you will probably get anesthesia to put you to sleep. Make sure to ask your anesthesiologist these questions for a successful surgery.

Angie's List medical licensing database

Use this Angie's List database to find the website of your state's medical licensing agency, through which you can confirm that a medical provider is licensed and whether the provider has any disciplinary actions cited on his or her record.

Anesthesia safe for patients

While anesthesia is safe, ask a health care provider about their training and experience. Also ask who will monitor your vital signs during the procedure.
