PHYSICIANS

Our doctors come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences but we have one thing in common: CAMA physicians are Board-certified/Board-Eligible anesthesiologists, which means we have the training and expertise to provide the highest level of anesthesia care for whatever procedure you may be having. We aim for friendly, professional service—we want a patient to feel comfortable and safe before, during and after surgery. All CAMA physicians and their families enjoy living in San Luis Obispo County and believe strongly in the importance of working with top quality physicians in our local hospitals. It’s important to our doctors that when our patients think of excellent anesthesia services, they think of Coastal Anesthesiology.

CAMA is helped on the business side by a great team of quality professionals.  All billing, insurance claims and fee matters are handled by our independent billing service, Integrated Medical Partners. IMP works directly with anesthesiologists and understands the unique aspects of anesthesia billing and claims. Tracy, Theresa, Jenna and Joanna together have over 25 years of experience working with CAMA and take great pride in their timely, professional approach to helping you understand your insurance plan and billing details.
