A mistake Delray Beach whiplash and car accident patients make is going to a local ER to report their injuries. They sit among very sick patients for hours and that just isn’t safe today. In addition to that, they’re exposed to excessive CT scans, that are most often not necessary. Finally, they’ll be sent home with a bill of up to $5,000 and a prescription for medications. On the other hand, Dr. Huffman could have called those medications into their local pharmacy without ever leaving the safety of their own home, without any delay. Here is some good news, the responsible car insurance pays for the telemedicine visit.
Additionally, ERs often miss soft tissue injuries, like whiplash, because it doesn’t show up on a CT scan. Until recently, Delray Beach car accident and whiplash patients had no options but to go to a local ER and/or urgent care. Primarily, because primary care physicians refuse to see injured patients, even their own established patients for auto accident injuries.
