See what some of our members have to say:
“I was initially unsure on the value of Anaesthetic Group and how it would integrate within my practice.After seeing my friends use it I decided to gave it a go and I’m glad I did.
I have received many benefits from using Anaesthetic Group – I now make fewer calls and save time, patients can actually know about me and my skills before we meet and they have the ability to easily contact me.
I think every anaesthetist needs a public profile to let patients know about the anaesthetist who will be looking after them.
In addition the website helps to raise our profile as doctors.
From a pre op preparation perspective it saves a great deal of time and makes our practice more time efficient.”

“At first I thought the concept of Anaesthetic Group was so simple – a web presence and an online health questionnaire. Very quickly I appreciated many more benefits.I’ve received more responses to my online questionnaires than paper versions. I have an avenue for collecting patient feedback. I can easily access all information at any time via my iPad and have reduced my paper load in storing and destroying confidential paperwork.
Anaesthetic Group makes the entire pre-operative assessment process more efficient by reducing/avoiding unwanted phone calls, and more convenient for patients as they can complete the questionnaire in their own time.
Contacting patients on the phone can be difficult in working hours as everyone is working, and this negates the need for bothering people after work at home.
I recommend Anaesthetic Group to any anaesthetist who does any work at all in the private sector.”

“This Anaesthetic Group website is awesome.I got a call from the Mater Hospital to do three cases for tomorrow. I wouldn’t have been able to call them until tonight, but I got the patient’s mobile numbers and sent them an SMS.
Twenty minutes later, and I’ve already got all their pre-op forms back from the website.
I’m all sorted and my wife will be happy since I won’t need to be on the phone tonight and we can still go out as planned.
This service is worth every cent.”
Dr. Carl D’Souza
“This service is worth every cent”
“I have always been the type of anaesthetist to ring up my patients – I don’t like any surprises when I chat to my patients on the day of surgery and the last thing I want to do is cancel a patient on the day of surgery for a reason that, in reality, I should have sorted out before their admission.Before Anaesthetic Group I spent approximately 10 hours every week calling patients to ensure their anaesthetic and informed financial consent details were in order prior to their admission. Considering you need a private location to call patients, this was normally done at my home study, either during the working day if I didn’t have a list, or, more commonly, in the evenings. This was a frustrating experience, as it wasn’t always a convenient time to speak to the patient – many were busy at work themselves or simply didn’t answer the phone. In terms of work/life balance, imagine coming home from work to see your family and simply walking straight to your study to make the calls. When I was home I wasn’t really ‘at home’ – certainly not a happy work/life balance.
Since switching to Anaesthetic Group to perform my preoperative assessments, the amount of private time that needs to be devoted to the task of calling patients has plummeted by over 90%.
I have also been able to take on more private work as I know I don’t need to devote one day a week to calling patients.
This has made a significant difference to my free time and also to the enjoyment of my evenings, as knowing I had to call ‘x’ number of patients would always weigh on my mind until I had completed the task.
Anaesthetic Group also allows anaesthetists to create their own profile page and be introduced to the patient. It gives anaesthetists a face and a voice, and, in addition, the ability to supply extra pages for patients to download.
To me, online patient care/prep is the future of anaesthetic practice, both public and private.
