Dr. Larry Kessler, a native of Brooklyn NY, a graduate from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, and residency trained and Board Certified in emergency medicine from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. In the past 22 years I have worked in several emergency facilities, from small, under-equipped suburban clinics to large state-of-the-art hospitals in the city. My practice of medicine has evolved from the Emergency Room to the private office setting where we now offer Urgent care; immediate medical attention without the hassle of the ER. I am currently the medical director of ER-DOX Urgent Care Centers throughout Long Island and now Brooklyn. I have also authored a book entitled ,”We all Die Once”. A look into our health system, it’s issues, history and potential futures all told through stories from my ER experiences. The book alone could be a show or more. Perhaps I could bring some to sign and give away to callers or promotional? And of course, one for you.
