An emergency doctor is a specialist handling extremely dangerous and urgent conditions. These experts work in emergency rooms (ERs) of medical facilities where they take care of trauma, cardiac distress, fractures and other conditions of serious nature. These physicians are purposely trained to make acute decisions to safe life and treat patients during critical situations that are a threat to the life of an individual.
Being an ER doctor, he must blend his six years’ experience with a lot of knowledge acquired from the full range of medical areas of interest to be ready to treat persons suffering from a wide scope of conditions including injuries and acute illnesses. He has given his services to over 627 patients of different ages, gender and background, with care and average level professionalism. However, his rating has been poor due to some of his patients complaining of unsatisfying services administered by him.
In his ratings by a patient he had treated, he showed patience and true concern for the patient who had breathing problems, congestion and cough, usually flu symptoms which was serious for this patient due to the patient’s complex medical condition. Dr Forsthoefel listened to the patient, took time to understand the patient’s past medical records and made sure he gave the patient the best medication as per the patient’s conditions.
Dr. Forsthoefel has been receiving great ratings because he is able to treat all his patients with great compassion and care. He has been able to treat patients suffering from a wide range of illnesses, conditions and injuries while he has been at the ER. In risky situations he is able to incorporate what he learnt and his vast experience to offer the best care.
