Dr. Patel on "The Locums Mindset"


Mercision Emergency Medicine was founded as an alternative practice model counter to the current practice climate of Emergency Medicine in the United States.

We value our core principles, and - by existing as an independent locums practice - uphold practice standards our client hospitals honor to achieve optimal emergency care.

We specifically aim to target high-acuity and high-volume, resource-poor, underserved settings, and provide the highest level of comprehensive emergency care. Many of these settings are rural localities with a dearth of board-trained and board-certified Emergentologists. We define our practice by evidence-based medicine, extensive locums experiences across multiple states, and an aptitude for precision in a vast array of complex emergency procedures. We are also fluent and versed in multiple practice settings, languages, and over seven different EMRs. We have no administrative duties or roles.

We are board-trained and board-certified in Emergency Medicine, have no malpractice litigation, and uphold a focused triad in our vision of Emergency Practice: Community Practice, Education, and Global Health.
