So how do you go about reporting your injuries? In the past, Stuart auto injury patients would report their injuries by going to the local ER. However, I’m here to tell you how that can end up being a terrible mistake.
First of all, you’ll wait in an ER full of sick people for hours, and that’s not a good start. Additionally, they’ll have you do excessive and unnecessary CT scans and if you have no broken bones, you’ll be discharged with a diagnosis of ‘no acute findings’. Unfortunately at the ER, they completely skip over soft tissue injuries like whiplash because their CT scans are unable to detect it. Before you leave the ER, you’ll be handed a bill for up to $5,000. After getting a large bill and a misdiagnosis, you may not even get a prescription to help with your pain.
Instead, Dr. Huffman could have called medication into your pharmacy without you ever leaving your home. Furthermore, you avoid the large hospital bill because the responsible auto insurance pays for Dr. Huffman’s telemedicine visit.
Until recently, car accident and whiplash patients had no options but to go to the local ER and urgent care. In part, because primary care physicians refuse to see injured patients. In fact, even their own established patients. That ultimately forced Stuart’s injured car accident patients to go to the local ER.
