Eric's ER StoryMar 3, 2020
Eric Dotten, ER patient, Emergency Center of Davie
Eric Dotten holds a high standard when it comes to the care he seeks. He has been a paramedic for 26 years, served in the armed forces as a combat medic, holds a Master’s of Science in Leadership Disaster Management and is a National Certified EMS Educator. This experienced healthcare professional had his expectations exceeded when he first visited The Emergency Center of Davie.
The first visit was to treat a broken foot due to an accident while walking his dog, Riley. Consequently, he was also treated for bronchitis. He was very impressed with the individualized attention he received. The lines of communication were always flowing between the nurses and his physician, Dr. Michelle Weiss. “They really made me feel welcomed and went above and beyond to treat me,” Eric expresses.
His second trip was due to a severe allergic reaction, and once again he was met with professional and caring nurses and doctors. Eric believes that the health system should be welcoming and all-inclusive to everyone that needs care, especially to the LGBT community. He experienced this and more during his visits to the Emergency Center of Davie. He will choose to return to the Emergency Center of Davie should the need ever arise, and he encourages his friends and family to go as well. The Emergency Center of Davie has proven to be a new option for emergency care that’s convenient, open 24/7 and in the neighborhood.
