EMTs provide high level of patient care

Re July 24 letter by Karyn Foley, “Local EMTs have me worried”

As an emergency medicine physician who has been practicing in Horry County for the last 20 years, I have received thousands of patients brought into the ER by local EMTs. I will just say simply that the quality of care provided by EMTs in this county is uniformly high. Given the nature of the business, no providers will be able to please everyone all of the time. Rest assured, however, that the prehospital care provided by EMTs is very good.
