Ormond Beach auto injury patients may make the mistake of going to a local ER to report their car accident injuries. When doing so, you’ll sit in an ER full of sick people for hours waiting to be seen, and that’s not a good start. Once you get in with a physician, you’ll be exposed to excessive and unnecessary CT scans where you’ll likely be discharged with a diagnosis of ‘no acute findings’.
The ER physicians base this diagnosis on CT findings of no broken bones. Obviously, soft tissue injuries like whiplash don’t show up on a CT scan. Before you leave the ER, you’ll be handed a bill for up to $5,000. Finally, you may or may not be given a prescription for medication.
Through a quick telemedicine visit, Dr. Huffman could have called a prescription into your pharmacy without you ever leaving your home. Furthermore, the responsible auto insurance pays for Dr. Huffman’s telemedicine visit- saving you time and money.
Until recently, car accident and whiplash patients had no option but to go to a local ER and urgent care. In part, because primary care physicians refuse to see injured patients. In fact, even their own established patients. Ultimately forcing Ormond Beach injured patients to go to local ERs.
