Dr. Eric Forsthoefel- A Day in the Life of a Tallahassee ER Doctor

Dr. Eric Forsthoefel is a well-known Tallahassee doctor who is dedicated to his line of work in the medical field. He specializes in emergency room care and is trained to access and treat patients who are dealing with a multitude of emergency issues. 

Dr. Forsthoefel was exposed to the medical world most of his life. However, he began his college career at Florida State University studying religion. It wasn’t until he was almost at the end of his college career that he decided to change his field of study. He switched to medicine and ended up graduating from the University of Louisville Medical School with a medical degree in emergency medicine. He completed his residency at Louisiana State University and then moved on to be an emergency doctor. Dr. Forsthoefel can treat men, women, and children suffering from a variety of medical issues, including cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, and more. 

Dr. Forsthoefel is quick to credit his success in the emergency room to the fact that he is very detail-oriented. He believes that this is the reason he is a very productive doctor. He enjoys working in the hectic and fast-paced atmosphere of the emergency room alongside colleagues who challenge him. He also believes that working with his colleagues is the best way to improve the workplace. Organization is another one of his strong points. Knowing what to expect in the ER and how to deal with it allows him to take care of his patients to the best of his ability. 

Dr. Forsthoefel isn’t just dedicated to the emergency work he performs on patients every day, even though that is a huge part of his life. He also enjoys barbequing when he relaxes at home, although he has stated that there is definitely room for improvement when it comes to his cooking skills. He also enjoys the book “The House of God,” written by Samuel Shem. The fictional book is about a group of medical interns who deal with real-life problems in a local hospital. He believes it is a must-read for anyone who is considering a life in the medical field.
