VisualDx in Practice
“As a board-certified emergency medicine physician practicing in two hospitals that collectively see over 90,000 patients per year, VisualDx has become part of my daily practice. The ability to immediately sift through patient presentations and develop a concise list of possibilities with images for visual comparison is essential to the practice of medicine.” – James Shoemaker, MD, Emergency Medicine Physician, Chairman, Elkhart General Hospital Emergency Department, Elkhart, IN
