Dr. Thomas Sawyer has joined the Essentia Health team in Fargo and specializes in cardiovascular anesthesiology.

“I chose Essentia Health because quality patient care, patient satisfaction and employee satisfaction seem to be a priority,” shares Dr. Sawyer. “My wife is originally from North Dakota and we are looking forward to relocating here.”

“Part of what I love about anesthesiology is giving medications and immediately seeing those effects,” explains Dr. Sawyer. “Not only is anesthesiology about pharmacology and physiology, it’s also about comforting patients. Anxiety around a procedure is normal and we are here to help. Please tell us what you are thinking and feeling. There’s no need to suffer in silence.”

Dr. Sawyer completed his medical education at the University of Arizona Tucson in Tucson, Ariz. Dr. Swayer’s residency in anesthesiology was completed at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham, Ala. and his fellowship in cardiothoracic anesthesiology was competed at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Sawyer is board certified in anesthesiology and echocardiography. He completed a master’s degree in business administration from the Eller School of Management at the University of Arizona.
