The worst thing a Newberry auto injury patient can do is go to a local ER to report their car accident injuries. First, you’ll sit in an ER full of sick people for hours to be seen, and that’s not a good start. Second, you’ll be exposed to excessive and unnecessary CT scans and you’ll likely be discharged with a diagnosis of ‘no acute findings’. ER physicians base this diagnosis on CT findings of no broken bones. Obviously, soft tissue injuries like whiplash won’t show up on a CT scan. Before you leave the ER, you’re handed a bill for up to $5,000. Finally, you may or may not be given a prescription for medication.
Ultimately, the same prescription, Dr. Huffman could have called into your pharmacy without you ever leaving your home. Furthermore, the responsible auto insurance pays for Dr. Huffman’s telemedicine visit.
Primary care physicians refuse to see injured patients and the ER is expensive and time consuming. So, what option is left? Calling Dr. Huffman for a FREE telemedicine visit.
