Dr. Himmel Admits

The procedure is very straightforward and well established. Dr. Himmel is intimately involved with the Vascular Service. He directs the Vascular Clinic. He has considerable clinical acumen and when he makes a determination that a patient requires admission to the Vascular Service the patient should be admitted to the faculty member on call for the faculty practice. I regularly admit patients that Dr. Himmel has determined require admission to the Vascular Service.

I will address this issue with the Vascular team and Dr. Divino will instruct the General Surgery house staff.

In the future if the ED staff are having any difficulty with the disposition of these patients, do not hesitate to contact me directly. My page # is 917-205-0504 and my cell # is 646-300-4239.

Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention,
