A terrible mistake that Sunrise auto injury patients have made is going to a local ER to report their car accident injuries. Going to the ER for whiplash injuries is an outdated and often useless experience. Many patients end up spending a lot of time at the ER and end up walking out with more problems than they came in with.
For instance, at the ER, you’ll sit in a room full of sick people for hours waiting to be seen. Next, you’ll get exposed to excessive CT scans that won’t even detect soft tissue injuries like whiplash. CT scans will show if you have any broken bones and if you don’t, ‘no acute findings’ will be documented on your medical report. Now it appears that you have no injuries when in fact, you could be suffering from whiplash. Before you leave the ER, you’ll be handed a bill for up to $5,000. You have now wasted your time and money at the ER and didn’t get a proper diagnosis or even any medication to help with your pain.
Dr. Huffman could have conveniently called a prescription into your pharmacy without you ever leaving your home. Furthermore, the responsible auto insurance pays for Dr. Huffman’s telemedicine visit and your injuries are documented correctly.
Until recently, car accident and whiplash patients had no other option but to go to a local ER or urgent care. In part, because primary care physicians refuse to see injured patients, even their own established patients. That ultimately forced Sunrise Car Accident patients to go to local ERs.
