After 20 years of experience as a practicing physician and 11 years serving as an academic department chairman and director of a perioperative service line for a health system, it became clear to Dr. Head that the current healthcare system was not sustainable without significant changes. Reimbursements were declining while quality measures and regulatory services were increasing, and healthcare organizations needed guidance on how best to navigate this paradigm shift.

He received his Medical Degree from Emory University, where he was Chief Resident and obtained a Fellowship in Cardiac Anesthesia.He obtained an additional Clinical and Research Thoracic fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hopital (MGH) at Harvard University, and stayed on staff at MGH for nine years.
Dr. Head founded and operated a Perioperative Consulting Company prior to joining Premier Anesthesia, and he is now the President of Premier Consulting Services and providing Medical Leadership to Premier at the corporate level.
