    Wow,
    I live in Ohio, and I can tell you that there are ER doctors in the hospital I work at like that. It's nice to be respected as an equal, and I love it when the physician I am working with is of that caliber. It reflects on everything we do...

    I had the immense pleasure of working with Dr. Baehren, in the ER at the big "O" when he was living in New Orleans. After almost 17 years in this profession, he still stands out as one of my most favorite docs! Thank you for the recognition Dr. Baehren, you are missed down south!

    I just recently left the ER. I was fed up with the clowns coming in 3 or 4 times a week with their BS complaints, the barely competent doctors, dealing with EMS refusing to transfer patients because they have saline running or some other ridiculousness, doctors refusing to see patients after 5 am, patients being discharged without us doing anything at all for them, doctors sitting on patients for entire shifts so that the bed doesn't get filled with a new body, etc etc etc.

    So to those of you who deal with similar situations, my hat is off to you!
