Meet Dr. Eric Forsthoefel

Dr. Eric Forsthoefel is one of the most promising young ER physicians in the Southeastern United States. Educated at the University of Louisville and Louisiana State University, he has practiced in both Louisiana and Florida. Unlike many physicians, Dr. Forsthoefel has a broad background. In addition to understanding biological sciences, he also has a BS in Religion Studies. This has improved his ability to communicate and understand with average working people. Dr. Forshoefel is board certified in emergency medicine by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.

Since 2012, when he started his residency, Dr. Forsthoefel has seen a lot. In the world of emergency medicine, everything can change in an instant. What was a slow day can quickly become a very busy one. During his career, Dr. Forsthoefel has learned to think on his feet and triage cases as best he can. He has become an expert at acute care, treating people with a variety of illnesses and traumas. He has diagnosed and treated broken bones and deep cuts. Dr. Forsthoefel is also experienced when it comes to cardiovascular issues like heart attack, stroke and more.

Dr. Forsthoefel practices at an emergency room in Tallahassee. During his time there, he has become a valued member of the local medical community. Though he focuses mostly on patient care, Dr. Eric Forsthoefel has also become something of an advocate for reform. He has noticed that many people in his community have come to rely on emergency rooms for situations that aren’t emergencies. This can create some real problems at his workplace.

To Dr. Forsthoefel, the issue isn’t that patients are being wasteful, or that they’re misinformed. The problem is overwhelmingly that people lack access to proper primary medical care. With access to a good primary physician or urgent care, people would be able to deal with small issues like ear infections and sprains without going to the ER. However, the way that the healthcare and insurance systems work in the United States can make it difficult for people to access or afford that kind of treatment.

Emergency rooms are required to treat every patient who presents. Dr. Forsthoefel has no problem with this. In fact, he always makes it a point to offer the best possible care to everyone. He tries to offer good customer service in addition to good medical care and advice. However, the strain on the resources at his emergency department is serious. Wait times are long. Another problem is that many of the patients who present are indigent. Because they can’t pay for services, prices for other patients necessarily go up to cover these costs. The middle class is getting squeezed; Dr. F sees this every day.

Dr. Forsthoefel is still in the first phase of his career. As the decades go on, he hopes to remain a force for good in the world of emergency medicine. His community of Tallahassee is also important to him. His patients appreciate the level of service he provides. He hopes to get even better with time.
