Patients come to the Emergency Department at Bellevue Hospital with much more than a medical diagnosis waiting to be made. Too many are left to turn to the ER due to the chaos of their lives. LegalHealth does for these patients all those things for which no number of prescriptions I write will ever cure. A chest x-ray or blood test will tell me somethingof disease at a moment in time, while the attorneys at LegalHealth treat the determinants of my patients’ health. It is for this that I am so grateful for their joining in the care we provide.— Paul Testa, MD, Department of Emergency Medicine, Bellevue Hospital
