Dr. Raj Waghmare


Dr. Raj Waghmare has two abiding passions in life: emergency medicine and writing. In his upcoming first book, Panic Room, Dr. Waghmare tells the stories of twenty patients, and follows his life’s path – from an uncertain medical student to a front-line doctor and mentor in one of the country’s busiest ERs. Dr. Wagmare’s blog, The Overhead Page, is enjoyed by thousands of readers in over one hundred and twenty countries, and has been featured in television and in print. He is also a regular guest on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s national lifestyle show, The Goods, where he presents “Tales from the ER.” Dr. Waghmare holds a Bachelor of Science from McGill University, and an MD from the University of Western Ontario. He lives in a suburb of Toronto with his wife and two young children.
