Dr. David A Denning has the following 3 specialties
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

I had one surgery with Dr. Denning 20 years ago, and it was a long one. The doctor stuck it out, as it was quite involved, and I'm alive 20 years later to talk about it. I just went to see him again, and he has suggested another surgery. I have no qualms about having him do the surgery; I definitely trust him. My family doctor told me he is the kind of doctor that never hesitates to tackle a tough case; I find that a very accurate portrayal. He is quiet, but gets to the point quickly. He won't play around with you, which gets high marks from me.
I know a lot of people said he was awful and had terrible bedside manner but my husband just had hernia surgery this morning and he was nothing but nice, friendly and professional. he answered all our questions and put our fears at ease. He performed the surgery well and all went as planned. We really liked him.
He allowed a resident physician to perform my outpatient gall bladder surgery. My aorta was punctured and I nearly bled to death. They did not know my blood type in order to immediately give me blood. Dr. Denning claimed he did the surgery, when in reality the resident physician admitted and apologized for the accident. Several years later when my medical records were requested by another physician, the record of the surgery suspiciously could not be found.
