What is a Hospitalist? Who is this Doctor taking care of me in the Hospital?
Chances are, if you have been admitted to the hospital recently, you weren't cared for by your usual doctor. Instead, a doctor you didn't know and had never seen before, was in charge of your care. You may have wondered:
- Where is my doctor?
- Why isn't my doctor here to coordinate my care while I'm in the hospital?
- Does my doctor even know that I'm in the hospital?
- Will my doctor be updated about my care?
In this seminar, Dr. Desai will explain what a hospitalist is, the role they play in your care, and the many advantages of having a hospitalist oversee the treatment you receive during your stay.
