Good Samaritan Welcomes New Anesthesiologist

Navid Etemadi, MD has always been fascinated by medicine. “The human body itself is an incredible thing to study and as a physician, I have the opportunity to further examine it with the most innovative technology,” he said. “From the pumping of the heart to medications that relieve pain and machines that allow us to look inside a person, modern medicine remains one of the most fascinating subjects in the world.” Dr. Etemadi earned his Doctorate of Medicine from Gullas College of Medicine in Cebu City, Philippines. He then went on to complete his Internal Medicine Residency from Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital and his Anesthesiology Residency from the Indiana University School of Medicine.

Dr. Etemadi chose to specialize in Anesthesiology because of the rewarding experience. “Being in the hospital can be stressful and scary to patients and as an Anesthesiologist, I am in a unique position to bring comfort to them and their families through pain relief.” Dr. Etemadi decided to join Good Samaritan because of his love of smaller hospitals and their prevention of illness throughout the community. “Community hospitals often take health care one step further by caring and preventing illness in the community, including the most vulnerable populations: those without insurance, without homes, young children and older adults,” he said. “I knew when I first visited Good Samaritan that this was the place I wanted to be.”

In his free time, Dr. Etemadi enjoys hiking and traveling. He is excited to join the Anesthesiology team and Good Samaritan family.
