Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

wellness checks, to help with chronic conditions, and medicines. And, you may spend less time in the Emergency Room.

How do you know when you should go to the doctor or Emergency room?
Deciding what is an emergency can be challenging for chronically ill patients. And only you can make this decision. Studies show, however, that the more patients utilize the
services of a regular physician or clinic, the fewer visits to ER become necessary.
