Choosing the right alternative can save time, money, and most importantly get you the right medical care you need at the right time!

When to go to Emergency Room (ER)

If you feel that the medical condition you're experiencing is life threatening, then you should go to the Emergency Room (ER). 

If you need medical care for any of the following conditions:-

  • Finding it difficult to breathe

  • Feel if you've had a stroke

  • Experiencing chest pain

  • Severe bleeding

  • You're coughing up blood

You should trust your instincts. If you feel that the medical condition is serious, then you shouldn't hesitate - you should go to the closest emergency room. 

However, if you feel that the condition isn't that serious - you would be better served by the medical team at Prognify Urgent Care. They will be able to evaluate your medical condition, and if warranted, the team will refer you to the emergency department (ER).
