Conemaugh welcomes anesthesiologist

March 6, 2019

Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown has welcomed board-certified anesthesiologist Michael A. Weiss to its team. With more than 20 years of experience, Weiss will provide patient care during surgical procedures and for obstetrics through Laurel Group Anesthesia.

“Anesthesiologists often meet patients during a stressful time,” Weiss said. “The patient might be nervous about their surgery or scared of the unknown. Often there is a very short period of time that I have to form a bond with the patient, obtain the information I need, help reduce their anxiety, and gain their trust so that I will be able to take good care of them during surgery.”

Weiss earned his medical degree at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. He completed an internship in internal medicine at New Rochelle Hospital, New York, and a residency in anesthesiology at Yale University, Yale New Haven Hospital.
