Established in 1991, Metro Anesthesia has grown from six founding members to nearly sixty physicians that practice at the best hospitals and surgery centers in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Over the years, Metro Anesthesia has become known for their superior service, compassion, professionalism, and their dedicated and talented physicians.
