We thank Paul Sygall, M.D., an anesthesiologist in Greenwich, Connecticut, who is on the front lines of fighting COVID-19. He is affiliated with Greenwich Hospital and is the president of Greenwich Anesthesiology Associates. Dr. Sygall called the COVID-19 pandemic “awe inspiring” when referring to the response of the entire health care team coming together to battle such a devastating infection. His training prepared him to work at a high level of performance in emergency situations. “Training at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Jackson Health System provided a similar mass casualty experience,” said Dr. Sygall. “Treating patients during this pandemic reminds me of protecting the health of our HIV, hepatitis C, and tuberculosis patients during the 90s.” Dr. Sygall is not surprised that doctors are stepping up to the plate, “It’s what we signed up for.”
