Urgentology gives voice to the people and personalities that have shaped the specialty of urgent care medicine, and will undoubtedly shape its future as well.
S2, Ep1: Dr. John Koehler
John Koehler is considered one of the founders of urgent care, and was one of the literal founders of the Urgent Care Association. In this episode we explore the concept of acuity degradation in urgent care, which is just beginning to be quantified but is easily sensed by those of us who have been practicing urgentology for 10-15 years. We'll consider the causes, and what our responses should be.
Episode 1: Dr. Michael Weinstock
Dr. Michael Weinstock has been working in emergency and urgent care medicine for many years, and is well-known for his series of "Bouncebacks" books, as a teacher and speaker, and as a host on Hippo Education's UC Rap Podcast. Listen in as Joe and Mike talk about managing difficult cases, the role of urgent care medicine, and advice on how to achieve happiness in practice and in life.
Episode 2: Dr. Michael Pond
Michael Pond is one of the true pioneers of emergency medicine and urgent care. Join me as we get a little emotional and talk about his veterinary days, the early years of urgent care, and what it's like to practice in "way upstate" rural New York.
Episode 3: Dr. Peter Lamelas
From humble beginnings to tremendous success, Peter's story is not only a reflection of personal perseverance (and the value of a great partnership) but about the early days of urgent care and why so many physicians chose this professional path.
Episode 4: Dr. Tracey Davidoff
If you think your practice setting is unique, wait until you hear about Tracey's - and what she thinks about the elevation of urgent care medicine, the power of teaching, and how to find balance in your life.
Episode 5: Dr. Kevin Reiter
Kevin Reiter had a unique path into urgent care, starting as a PA, becoming an MD, with some exciting things along the way (no spoilers here) and leading to his current role(s) with Northwell GoHealth Urgent Care directing their urgent care residency program, among other things. He also had a front row seat to the COVID experience in New York. Join Joe Toscano in this episode as he gets the full story.
What a great show. So easy to listen to. Host does a great job putting it all together. Give it a listen and you will thank me.
Amazing host and great discussion
