Don’t make the mistake that many Palm Coast auto injury patients make, which is going to a local ER to report their car accident injuries. Let me save you the time and trouble and explain why. To begin, at the ER you may have to wait hours to see a doctor in a room full of ill patients.
Once you’re finally brought back, you’ll be exposed to excessive and unnecessary CT scans. From the CT scans, you’ll likely be discharged with a diagnosis of ‘no acute findings’ which essentially just means that you have no broken bones. Obviously, soft tissue injuries like whiplash won’t show up on a CT scan. After waiting hours to get no accurate diagnosis, you leave the ER with a bill for up to $5,000. After all the trouble you went through, you may not even be given a prescription for medication.
Instead, 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.
Until recently, there really wasn’t any other option for car accident patients except to go to the ER or urgent care. In part, because primary care physicians refuse to see injured patients, even if they’re established. Now, Palm Coast injured patients are no longer forced to go through the hassle of the ER.
