Where to Get Medical Care Now

Save time and money when you choose the correct care

When you need immediate medical care, knowing where to go can save you time and money, and even may save your life. Emergency rooms are busy places where specially trained doctors and other health care professionals frequently treat life-threatening conditions. This high-tech care environment is not the best place to go for minor medical concerns like sinusitis, earache or a fever.

When you seek care in an ER for minor conditions, you may wait longer for care and have higher insurance co-pays than you would for a visit to your primary care doctor or if you choose one of our same-day care options. Following are some tips on how to choose the right place to get care.
