Megan Clinton, MD

Accepting a position as an Anesthesiologist at AAPA is the best career decision I have ever made. Our group focuses on clinical excellence with a positive team approach. We stay up to date on current clinical advances via our medical practice program, and are known for our efficiency in all of the hospitals and surgery centers in which we work. As an Anesthesiologist with AAPA, I am able to care for a wide range of patients (pediatric, adult, and obstetric patients) of varying levels of acuity. At the end of the day, I feel satisfied that I have helped patients and worked as a valuable member of our care team.

The best part of AAPA is the people with whom I work. The other physicians, CRNAs, and support staff have become friends both in and out of the work environment. The early mornings associated with a career in anesthesia are made more enjoyable by the camaraderie in the office as we prepare for the day. I know that I can always call on a colleague for help or advice on challenging clinical situations, as we are truly a team. Moreover, we are their to celebrate each other's major life events such as graduation parties, baby showers, weddings and retirements. The people truly make this job!

Ian Mitchell, MD

I chose AAPA because of their strong presence on the east side of the metro. Additionally I was interested in AAPA's varied practice settings where I could practice cardiac anesthesia one day and at an outpatient surgical center the next day.

Cole Laber, MD

AAPA has a large footprint in the Twin Cities area, and this attracted me to the practice. I appreciate the ability to find my niche in the practice, whether that means practicing in cardiac anesthesia, hospital settings, or practicing in ambulatory surgery centers. There is a ton of variety in the daily practice and it is a truly supportive and collaborative setting throughout.

Dan Hottinger, MD

I began working at AAPA in 2019. One of my roles at AAPA is to serve on our Education Committee. This is a joint effort between AAPA physicians and anesthetists to provide ongoing education tailored to our anesthesia practice. Examples include dissemination of site-specific updates to guidelines or protocols, staying current in evolving areas of practice, and drawing from AAPA’s complex, extensive clinical volume to share important pearls that our whole team can benefit from. I believe that having this ongoing education helps grow and leverage the special skills that each member brings to our team, and this collaboration is one of the reasons that I enjoy working for AAPA.

Asha Nookala, MD

I joined AAPA because of the great team dynamic between physicians and CRNA's. The practice stays current by continuing to practice the most recent evidence based medicine. The wide variety of patients from pediatrics to adults allows us to care for individuals throughout the years.
