While medical concerns can be scary and confusing—especially in the middle of the night—trips to the emergency room (ER) for a non-emergency can be expensive and take a lot of time. Well-informed choices, however, can save you time and money.
Get thoughtful, accurate health information from a registered nurse who will help you decide the right level of medical care for your health need.
