PAGNY was started in 1999 to provide anesthesia services in the office and ambulatory surgery settings.  The founders of PAGNY, Edward Ament,MD and Alan Kestenbaum,MD,  are former attending anesthesiologists from New York Presbyterian Hospital. They are board certified and have decades of combined experience in the hospital and ambulatory arenas. Because they realize the importance of being hands on, Drs. Ament and Kestenbaum work clinically every day.  Our clients find it extremely useful to have us available to answer any of their questions or concerns.  In addition, PAGNY has a small number of board certified anesthesiologists with many years of clinical experience to help provide excellent anesthesia coverage.  Because safety, patient satisfaction, doctor satisfaction and professionalism are the hallmarks that define PAGNY, our clients find the care and services we provide to be superior to all others.
