Meet Our Anesthesiologists
Dr. Richard Marn
Dr. Shirly Friedman
Dr. Richard Marn is a board certified anesthesiologist with over fourteen years of experience. He received his undergraduate degree from Washington University and his medical degree from the University of Hawaii School of Medicine. He completed his anesthesia residency at New York University followed by a subspecialty anesthesia fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Marn was an Attending Anesthesiologist at Mt. Sinai Medical Center before joining our practice.
Dr. Shirly Friedman is a board certified anesthesiologist with over twelve years of experience. She grew up in Germany and received her medical degree from Technical University in Munich. She completed her anesthesia residency at Columbia University Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medical Center and was an Attending Anesthesiologist at Mt. Sinai Medical Center for four years before entering private practice. She has been specializing in office-based private practice anesthesia for over 8 years before joining our practice.
Our anesthesiologists have adapted standard hospital anesthesia techniques to be more compatible with the aesthetic surgery patient. Both doctors value their close working relationship with Dr. Hidalgo and believe it to be superior to the typical arrangement in hospitals where anesthesiologists rotate between many surgeons.
Our anesthesiologists will review your medical history and laboratory results prior to the day of your procedure. You will have a detailed phone consultation with either Dr. Marn or Dr. Friedman to review the specifics of your medical history and answer your questions. Our anesthesiologists are sensitive to any prior experiences you may have had and tailor their technique to provide a safe and pleasant anesthetic experience.
