If you find you are in need of visiting an emergency room at a hospital, it could be one of the most frightening experiences you can have. This is especially true for small children. You will want to get the best care you can but you would also like for the staff there to be compassionate to you. Most patients going to an emergency room are in quite a bit of pain or have a serious injury and how they are treated by the staff goes a long way in their recovery. Dr. Eric Forsthoefel is an emergency room doctor at Tallahassee Medical Center in Florida. He has been working in this department for many years and has experienced all kinds of injuries. He treats each of his patients with respect and is quick to make a diagnosis. Patients who have received care from him have found him to be very patient with them and professional.
Dr. Eric Forsthoefel graduated from medical school and sought to build a private practice treating patients in his home area. He established an office and quickly built up his clientele. He was asked to join the team at Tallahassee Medical Center in their emergency room and he knew that this could only help him to further build his practice. He currently has an office off of the main campus of the hospital and still treats patients there, but, his main focus has become emergency medicine. He attends classes regularly in order to further his knowledge in this field and has received many awards for his work. Dr. Forsthoefel uses the latest technology both in the emergency room and at his private practice. His patients find that they receive the top care they can for whatever is wrong with them. The doctor would like to see the emergency room at the hospital upgrade their equipment to match the technological advances that have been made in medicine. The doctor also works in his community helping those less fortunate who are unable to get proper medical care. Dr. Eric Forsthoefel works with several organizations in this field.
