To the Editor: We were disturbed by the Clinical Crossroads article1 and Dr Eisenberg's accompanying Editorial2 regarding a 58-year-old woman dissatisfied with her care. We are concerned that the authors may lack familiarity with anesthesiology and have interpreted this patient's experience out of proper context.
