Our Practice

Unparalleled Service Since the Very Beginning


Founded in 1991, Providence Anesthesiology Associates (PAA) is an independent practice of more than 100 anesthesiologists. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, we provide unparalleled anesthesia and perioperative care at a growing list of hospitals and healthcare facilities across North and South Carolina, serving more than 200,000 patients annually. Our physicians are among the elite in their field, specializing in areas including pediatric anesthesiology, cardiovascular anesthesiology, orthopedic anesthesiology and pain management, among others. PAA provides uncompromising quality in all aspects of patient care by practicing in an evidence-based fashion, measuring our outcomes, and continuously striving to improve those outcomes.

At PAA, our patients come first, which is why we’ve implemented a patient-centered model to maximize both patient safety and satisfaction. Our care extends beyond the traditional intra-operative arena, as we believe truly comprehensive patient care includes the entire perioperative spectrum, not just while in surgery. We connect with our patients from day one, beginning with their decision to have surgery and spanning all the way through recovery, and to their return to normal activity.

Our practice is rooted in the belief that the independent physician drives the highest levels of productivity, creativity, professionalism, and clinical excellence. It’s something every anesthesiologist at PAA is passionate about. Our independence and corresponding ability to focus on meeting our own rigorous standards, which far exceed those of mega-groups, hospitals, and publicly owned corporations, enables us to deliver the truly unmatched clinical care you’ll receive from PAA’s anesthesiologists and clinicians.
