As a Doctor working in the ER, he offers us a unique expertise in health related subjects. His experience as an emergency doctor provides a different view of the medical field, as he shares his goals, vision, and the challenges he faces while treating, operating or advising his patients. He writes or reviews the articles of, ensuring their accuracy and relevancy along with other collaborators.

Besides being board-certified Emergency Doctor, his very atypical work environment and the wide range and types of patients he consults every day allows him to do what he loves. He shares his passion for medicine with us both medically (physiological and pathological phenomenon) as well as psychologically and socially, as the management of stress, emotions and the relationship with patients and with their family is very delicate in emergencies.
