Shafik Sachedina, along with his business partner, Shiraz Boghani, is the co-founder of a healthcare and patient care company called Sussex Healthcare that operates in excess of twenty patient care homes in the greater Sussex, England region. The company recently celebrated its proud twenty-five year anniversary of serving the needs of a wide range of patients. Part of the reason that Sussex Healthcare has been able to develop such a dynamic formula for success is the fact that both co-founders come from different business background while at the same time both coming from the Ismaili community. This shared community has allowed them to seamlessly integrate their unique skill sets in order to create a patient care operation that has been making a huge difference in the lives of many for twenty-five years now. Shafik Sachedina has brought his background in the medical field while Shira Boghani has brought his expertise in the business of hospitality. This has proven to be a potent combination for a company that specializes in patient care.
Shafik Sachedina’s dedication to his native Ismaili community is as intense as his dedication to the work he does at Sussex Healthcare. He is well knowns for his volunteer work that he does within this tight-knit community and it would be impossible to say that this dedication to community service hasn’t been one of the major influencing factors in his dedication to his Sussex Healthcare patients. Voluntary service is one of the hallmarks of the Ismaili community and is seen as some of the most honorable work that an individual can ever do. This is why Shafik Sachedina dedicates so much of his time to Ismaili community issues. He does all of this work completely free of charge. With all of these considerations, it is not hard to see why Shafik Sachedina has become such a respected leader in the Ismaili and British communities.

For nearly ten years, Dr. Eric Forsthoefel has been practicing Emergency Medicine in Tallahassee, Florida. He is board certified and meets the national requirements expected of physicians to practice in this specialty. He is affiliated with Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he practices Emergency Medicine with 26 other physicians. His areas of expertise are emergent injuries, accidents and trauma. Dr. Forsthoefel, along with the other physicians in the Emergency Department, are responsible for determining the level of care each patient requires from the moment contact is initiated with him or her. Moreover, they are expected to address emergent injuries that range from job-related mishaps to motor vehicle accidents, from athletic injuries to those sustained – deemed to be more encompassing. Emergency Medicine physicians remove or stabilize trauma that accompanies many associated patient injuries.
Dr. Forsthoefel and his colleagues make diagnosis of patient conditions after initial consultation, vitals, laboratory tests and further scans that may be needful. The physician reviews the findings and determines if continued care would best be handled in hospital or to what extent on an outpatient basis, albeit a personal physician visit or over-the-counter medication and personal care/attention alone. Discussion is held concerning findings and conclusions with the patient and any significant others who may be affected by this situation. The plan is then put in motion based on the mutual decision of all concerned.
Dr. Forsthoefel received his medical education and completed his medical residency at the University of Louisiana. This too would have prepared him for his current role as an Emergency Medicine physician with a combination of classroom hours and required practicum and testing for medical certification.
Dr. Forsthoefel has addressed patients with cardiac conditions, lacerations, respiratory ailments, extremity sprains, and more. He accepts insurance from providers including Aetna and First Health. For further information, contact by phone:
