Even in the age of electronic medical records, there is still paperwork that needs to be completed and signed for patient care.
Dr. Bose has practiced in the busiest emergency rooms not only in the country, but he staffed the busiest trauma center in the world at the height of the Iraq war. Attached to an infantry unit, he provided frontline care on the streets of the combat zone in Iraq for 15 months.
