Our Anaesthetists

Sydney Anaesthetic Services is a select group of specialist Anaesthetists based in Sydney, New South Wales. We have been assisting our surgical colleagues with the provision of high-quality anaesthetic services since 1996. Sydney Anaesthetics currently serves over 50 anaesthetists, all of whom may work in Sydney metropolitan and NSW country hospitals. The anaesthetists within the group all operate as individual practitioners; this means there are differences between how each anaesthetist works and bills. Our offices are open between the hours of 8.30am and 5.00pm, and can be found at Suite 3, 100 Alexander Street, Crows Nest NSW 2065.
