Consultations for Surgery and Hospital Guidance for Inpatients
If your medical treatment requires a hospital stay, you will receive treatment from a different physician, but Dr. Marilyn Kutzscher will remain active in your care.
Every patient who is admitted to a hospital has an inpatient manager (hospitalist) assigned to their care. This doctor is your admitting doctor who has the ultimate say over your orders and length of stay. However, Dr. Kutzscher will consult with your hospitalist so they are aware of your medical history and any nuances of your unique situation. You can rest assured that Dr. Kutzscher will be your advocate and will carefully follow your progress to make sure you are receiving the appropriate treatment and the best care possible. We will all work together to improve your medical situation so you can return home safely.
For post-surgery patients, or patients admitted directly to a surgeon or cardiologist, Dr. Kutzscher will make every attempt to be there for you. These doctors are in charge of your care, but they can use her insight to help with all of your other medical issues.
