Avoid this when Reporting your Injuries
A big mistake made by St. Augustine Whiplash Care patients is going to a local ER to report their car accident injuries. Let me show you why a trip to the ER could end up being such a big mistake.
When you first go in, you’ll sit in an ER full of sick people for hours waiting to be seen, and that’s not a good start. Second, you’ll be exposed to excessive and often unnecessary CT scans. From there, 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 won’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.
As a matter of choice, you could have gotten the same prescription from Dr. Huffman and had it called into your pharmacy without you ever leaving your home. Not only that, but the responsible auto insurance pays for your telemedicine visit with Dr. Huffman.
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, they won’t even see their own established patients for injuries. As a result, forcing St. Augustine Whiplash Care patients to go to local ERs.

A better approach to reporting your injuries and securing the benefits you are entitled to is to call Dr. Huffman. If you choose to, he can see you for a simple cell phone telemedicine injury visit.
