Hello and thank you for visiting my blog. You can call me Dr. Tabias Heal, and I am an ER doctor. Working in Emergency Rooms across the United States over the past 8 years has given me an intimate look into the lives of so many people – the good, the bad, the ugly and the clinically insane. In the current era of medical system melt-down, I thought to take the time to share some of these stories with the public to help them see the medical system from the eyes of the people that work in it everyday. The names have all been changed to protect medical privacy as well as my own privacy. It may change your perspective on a number of issues related to medicine and the medical system in the United States, or it just might make you laugh, cry and/or scream at the things people seek “medical” care for in our great nation’s Emergency Rooms. I sincerely hope though that you will learn something and benefit from what is written and I’ll be sure to answer questions if you have them – just don’t ask me for a work note ok?
