Timothy Brooks, MD, FACEP, President of the Saratoga Emergency Physicians, came to Saratoga Hospital 32 years ago and saw the potential of an independent and democratic group. He attended University of Michigan Medical School and Wright State University’s Emergency Medicine residency, in Dayton, Ohio. He and seven others set up the first independent Emergency Medicine practice in the region, and was the last in the region. He feels "the outstanding relationship with the Hospital Administration, our group’s involvement with the community, our unique and collaborative relationship with the ED nursing staff, and our familiarity and collegiality with the Medical Staff" make this an outstanding and lifelong career location now part of Saratoga Hospital Medical Group.

Rob Donnarumma, MD, born in Brooklyn, completed his Doctor of Medicine degree at New York Medical College and Emergency Medicine residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He has been a member of SEP for five years. The 36-year-old said he loves practicing in Saratoga Springs, a great area for his young family. He thinks the "great ancillary support, dedicated nursing staff, specialty call coverage, and easy admission process with our relationship with the hospitalists," make Saratoga a great place to work.

Todd Duthaler, DO, FACOEP, SEP Vice President and Saratoga Hospital’s Chief Medical Informatics Officer, has been a member of the group for 19 years. "The cohesive medical staff, ever-expanding medical staff and specialty coverage, progressive administration, and active physician involvement are reasons I love to practice in Saratoga. The small town atmosphere with the vibrant, eclectic downtown with that classic Main Street feel is what brought me here," he said. "It is nice that there is life beyond medicine, too. We have so much to offer right here, and within two hours you can be in the heart of the Adirondack or Catskill Mountains for breathtaking views, hiking, fishing, camping, snowshoeing, skiing.
