Faculty Testimonials

Our faculty tell us in their own words why they love working for UF Health, why they stay, and what they enjoy doing in Gainesville, Florida.

Assistant Professor

Christopher Edwards, MD

"From the moment I began communicating with department leadership, I could tell that this department was a special and personable place. Since joining the department, the support from senior faculty has continued to impress me. Dr. Tim Martin has helped me become involved in local and national pediatric anesthesia committees, while Dr. Nik Gravenstein has guided me in finding a niche in malignant hyperthermia, and Dr. Christoph Seubert, an established researcher, assisted me through an IRB submission, among other examples. The generosity of department leaders with their time and mentoring truly stands out. Being part of an academic medical center provides an enjoyable mix of experiences. Some days I work with residents just starting to take care of pediatric patients, some days I work with senior residents refining their skills, and some days I work with a talented group of anesthetists. Gainesville has been a fun and affordable place for our family, with two young children, to live. My parents enjoyed their visits to Gainesville so much during our first two years here that they recently decided to retire here."

Sandra Gonzalez, MD

"I wanted to complete my residency in Anesthesiology at UF because of the great quality of the program, the type of cases that come here, and the opportunity to train with outstanding faculty. Our department is a pioneer in simulation, which I found to be very important for my training. Location was also an important consideration, and my family and I decided to return to Gainesville because of the excellent quality of life here while we raise two young children. I enjoy the opportunity to share my knowledge through teaching and helping others attain their career goals. Having learners around me is an endless source of interesting discussions and conversations, which are intellectually important for me. At UF, I feel that I am supported to do my job the way I think is most beneficial for my patients and their families. We serve patients from all socioeconomic backgrounds; for me, this is very important, especially because most of my patients are children, and I believe that providing good healthcare for all children is one of the most important investments we can make for their future and for the future of our country."

Albert R. Robinson III, MD, FASE

“As a UF alum, I returned to Gainesville in 2006 because I wanted to provide outstanding cardiovascular and cardiothoracic anesthesia for some of the sickest patients in a place with a high volume and variety of complex cases. UF Health has consistently been a leader in Florida for heart and lung transplantation and major vascular and aortic surgery. I am humbled and grateful to continue the tradition of excellence in perioperative cardiac ultrasound, especially for transaortic catheter aortic valve replacement and percutaneous mitral valve replacement surgery, in world-class facilities. UF has allowed me flexibility in pursuing my range of interests in patient care, teaching, research, and administration. I thoroughly enjoy educating and mentoring eager undergraduate and medical students, as well as training and supervising our anesthesiology residents and cardiothoracic fellows to ensure excellent patient care and safety. The College of Medicine has allowed me to be a resource for recruiting, shadowing, and mentoring. I motivate our youth to aspire to careers in medicine. Gainesville is a family-friendly city with a plethora of activities for children, including a perfect mix of entertainment, performing arts, museums, and sports.”

Associate Professor of Anesthesiology; Director, Critical Care Medicine Fellowship

Peggy A. White, MD

"While I was an ICU nurse at UF Health, I was inspired by the expertise of the attendings and wanted to do more in medicine. I knew I wanted to return to UF after medical school because of the exemplary training offered here. During my anesthesiology residency at UF, I was extremely impressed not only by the knowledge and experience of the people I worked with, but also their advanced skill level. I chose to stay at UF for fellowships in critical care medicine and neuroanesthesiology and to join the faculty because of the people I was surrounded by and the support they provided. The high-acuity cases at UF Health are a draw for me. Although the cases may be the same, the patients have such a high degree of complexity that you constantly have to remain on your toes and think through every detail. No day is the same, which keeps me continually learning and striving to improve. I also enjoy pursuing my interest in resident education. UF offers unique opportunities for career development and mentorship through national and international activities. Critical care is also a field that involves deep collaboration, providing additional avenues for growth. Gainesville is unique in that it has a small-town feel while being home to a large academic institution. I enjoy the strong sense of community I have here."

Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology

Brandon Lopez, MD

“I was drawn to UF by the collegiality and breadth of cases I get to participate in, from obstetrics to liver transplants. I have had the opportunity to expand my clinical skills in those areas and am now part of both the Division of Obstetric Anesthesia and Division of Liver and Transplant Anesthesia. I am passionate about teaching residents in the perioperative environment and enjoy participating in the next generation of anesthesiologist learning. I created a morning lecture series for obstetric anesthesia using a flipped-classroom format to enhance learning. I also mentor residents, give lectures, and serve as a mock oral board examiner. UF provides ample research opportunities and a strong support structure. I have been able to pursue my research interests in two subspecialties while contributing to simulation research. My clinical duties include serving as anesthesiology clinical staffing and scheduling coordinator, residency rotation director for the anesthesia general surgery rotation, and quality officer of the Presurgical Clinic. These roles enable me to hone my skills in communications, operating room management, cost-effective strategizing, and scheduling. I enjoy living in Gainesville, which has a small-town vibe, easy living, and a centralized location for easy road trips.”

Interim Chair, Department of Anesthesiolothy; Professor of Anesthesiology and Surgery

Gregory M. Janelle, MD, FASE, FASA

"I came to UF to train at one of the best anesthesiology residencies in the country where I knew I would have the opportunity to take care of the most medically complex patients in a relaxed and supportive environment. That same need — to care for the sickest of the sick and the smallest of the small — along with a love for learning the science and art of perioperative echocardiography, led to my clinical interests in adult and pediatric cardiac anesthesia. While my academic efforts have evolved from research to more administrative assignments, my clinical niches have remained at the core of my professional identity, and UF is one of the few places in the country where I can maintain an active practice straddling both worlds. It is a privilege to be part of a cohesive perioperative team while helping to educate our residents and fellows. After meeting my wife during my internship here, we decided that Gainesville would also be a wonderful place to raise a family. Our children have received excellent educations in a nurturing, small-town environment. In Gainesville, we have been able to enjoy family kayaking, scuba diving, rocket watching … and even alligator hunting!"

Juan C. Mora, MD

“The complexity of cases, availability of clinical experiences, and expertise of mentors made UF the perfect place to develop my skill set after I completed medical school in Colombia and research training at the Mayo Clinic. During my residency and fellowship at UF Health, I had access to incredible mentors, whose support allowed me to pursue a career as a pain physician. This path has enabled me to make a direct impact on the quality of life in our community. The Pain Medicine Division at UF in Gainesville provides an incredible array of advanced procedures, from interventional to non-interventional, minimally invasive techniques that are not offered elsewhere. The resources and supportive staff here allow me to help restore functionality in some of the most complex patients, many of whom cannot be cared for elsewhere. We have the unique opportunity to share knowledge with a new generation of physicians in our residents, fellows, and trainees; I find satisfaction in being part of their transformation to better professionals. As a young professional, Gainesville is a perfect environment. It offers a wealth of outdoor activities, including mountain and road biking, that I can enjoy 12 months of the year, as well as access to tourist destinations.”
