Before he became an emergency physician, Dr. Eric Forsthoefel, he worked as an emergency medicine resident. The doctor has vast experience as a medical practitioner, having worked in the medical sector for close to a decade. He specializes in a broad range of critical conditions and injuries and patients can pay for the services rendered through any of the multiple insurance policies such as First Health, Medicare and Aetna.
Dr. Eric Forsthoefel is one of the most celebrated physicians in Tallahassee evidenced by the positive feedback left by the patient’s he has served in the past. Going by the remarkable feedbacks left so far in regard to his ability to respond to questions, clarity of the instructions he gives, and the amount of time he spends with a patient, among other factors, it is clear that the doctor is dedicated to providing quality medical care.
In Amanda Moore’s article regarding the impact that non-urgent care has on Florida emergency rooms, she postulates that the biggest challenge in healthcare today is the overly use of emergency facilities for cases that are not urgent. In her research, she found out that approximately one-third of Americans visit emergency rooms even in instances where their medical needs are not urgent.
Dr. Eric Forsthoefel holds a similar opinion with Moore and goes ahead to assert that while working as an emergency physician, he has witnessed several instances of non-urgent cases in emergency facilities. According to him, the problem is caused by lack of a dedicated primary care, which prompts patients to seek help in the Emergency Departments. Regardless of how emergent the condition is, Dr. Eric Forsthoefel says that he has to provide the required care since that is his primary duty as a physician.
