Dr. Gupta works tirelessly with EMS outreach in order to identify stroke victims in the field and rapidly triage them to hospitals with endovascular capabilities. Through a series of lectures, hands on seminars and other educational opportunities over 500 EMS providers received educational CEU's last year. This involved over 10 counties including (Pickens. Gilmer, Raybun, Fulton, Cobb, Paulding, Douglas, Coweta, Floyd, Union, Gwinett, etc.). The results of this education have led to patients with large stroke syndromes coming to Kennestone directly from the field and being treated more expeditiously with improved outcomes. The results of this work were published in a major journal with the American Heart Association working on pathways nationally to mimic these protocols.

I am a tireless student of work ethic, with a dedication to always be better tomorrow than I am today. From being a volunteer to an officer in the fire service; from a brand new EMT to a Flight Paramedic of a highly-skilled air medical program, from a records clerk in a doctor’s office to a trauma specialist at one of the busiest pediatric trauma centers in the country. I do not tolerate apathy, excuses or laziness. There are people who come to work with passion, drive and ever-growing hunger to achieve excellence. I call these people professionals. Then there are people who come to work for the sole purpose of collecting a paycheck. I call these people employees. Don't be an employee.
