- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

My son had a battery stuck in the back of his nose that another ER couldn't get out. We were sent to a specialty ER and saw Dr. Palmer. He saw us as soon as we got to our room and he got the battery out in 30 seconds!! You usually don't get to choose your doctor in the emergency room, but I would definitely recommend him if you do!
