“At UCC, the environment is spacious, clean, and calming for patients with the most modern equipment at our disposal. Our staff is specially trained to help diagnose and treat all sorts of acute medical conditions. These two factors help set us apart from the ‘usual’ urgent care clinics…”
Dr. Larry Hobbs, Managing Partner, UCC of SWFL
What inspired you to become a physician and why did you specialize in Emergency Medicine?
Ever since visiting the doctor as a young child, I always thought I would enjoy working and helping people through science. I elected to specialize in Emergency Medicine because of the excitement of the ER environment and the ability to help so many people in a short period of time.
Can you describe a particularly memorable or rewarding experience with a patient at UCC?
I was able to quickly recognize that an individual who came in to UCC thinking he had indigestion was actually experiencing an acute heart attack. With our connections to the hospital and the medical staff, specifically a cardiologist on staff, I was able to get him flown via EMS helicopter directly to the cardiac catheterization lab where the cardiologist was able to 'reverse' his condition within 90 minutes from his arrival at our Center. This helped save heart muscle and he was able to return to his active lifestyle without heart damage.
When not helping others, how do you spend your time?
I am an active musician in the community (as the bass guitar player for the blues band 'The Juice") and I like snow skiing, sailing, and spending quality time with my family.
