Patients Deserve Physician-Led Care

When it matters most, patients deserve to have the most qualified health care professionals leading their care.

It takes thousands of hours and years of experience to be able to identify the subtle symptoms that could mean the difference between life and death.

There is no substitute for a licensed, trained, and board-certified emergency physician in the ER. Who would you want leading your care in a medical emergency?

Who is the most qualified person in the emergency department? 

An emergency physician is required to complete 11 or more years of training and is the only member of a care team that completes a medical residency. They also have significantly more hands-on training with real patients than the other professionals on their team, clocking at least 12,000 clinical hours.

It takes thousands of hours and years of experience to be able to identify the subtle symptoms that could mean the difference between life and death.

Who provides care in a time of chaos?

Shifts in the emergency department are exhilarating and unpredictable, but a licensed and board-certified emergency physician completes thousands of hours of training, and more than a decade of expert-level education, so that they are prepared in a moment’s notice for any challenge that comes their way.

Remember—It's OK to ask to see a physician.
