PCP vs ED? 1 good question to ask yourself is,"Am I going to the ED because it's convenient or cause it's necessary?" bit.ly/QEKmcA


Apr 23, 2014

Most health problems are not emergencies. One good question to ask yourself is, "Am I thinking about going to the ED because it's convenient or because it's necessary?" If you go to the ED for a problem that is not an emergency: • It will cost a lot more than it would at your doctor's office or a walk-in clinic. A trip to the ED for an earache, for example, may cost three to four times as much as it would at your doctor's office. • You will probably spend a lot more time there than you would at your doctor's office. • You will get care from a doctor who has probably never seen you before. It's always best to get as much of your care as you can from a doctor who knows and understands you.
