He completed his critical care internship – LVHS, Anesthesia residency – at Lankenau Hospital. He holds an MS in Anesthesia from St. Joseph’s Hospital University in Philadelphia and also holds an MSN from West Chester University. After earning these degrees he went on to earn his PhD in general psychology from Northcentral University in Prescott, Arizona. And if that isn’t enough, he is a current faculty member at West Chester University in West Chester, PA and at Eastern University in St. Davids, PA.
Ed is an active participating member of the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), the Pennsylvania Association of Nurse Anesthetists (PANA), the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Ed maintains a private practice in hypnosis/hypnotherapy in Kennett Square PA. He has spoken at several national conventions on topics concerning hypnosis, hypnotism, hypnotherapy and anesthesia.
If his education and experience doesn’t put you at ease, his friendly personality certainly will. Ed spends much of his time reading about the most recent advancements in anesthesia, and has participated in thousands of chair side conscious sedations for oral surgery.
