Overview

Dr. Retzack has enjoyed her career in pediatric anesthesia and regards it as a privilege to be able to walk patients and their families through the sometimes-frightening prospect of anesthesia and surgery. It is her desire to provide a calm, honest, and reassuring interaction with the patient and family in order to go unnoticed, much like a good umpire, who performs well, but attracts little notice. Dr. Retzack also enjoys teaching residents and medical students the fundamentals of anesthesia for children, particularly as it pertains to airway management.
