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.

Dr. Boertje actually took the time to thoroughly explain what was wrong with my son. I was amazed he actually took the time to really sit down on an actual stool to talk to me as if my son was his only patient. He spoke with confidence and intelligence. His bedside manner was superior to other experiences I have had. Kudo's to Presbyterian Hospital for such and excellent pediatrician.
