Your regular physician is an option for emergency care that is not life threatening.  Emergencies that are not life-threatening like stitches, sprains, rashes, mild asthma, sprain or strain, cough or sore throat, ear ache, minor fever, mild allergic reaction, burning with urination and bumps, cuts and scraps can all be taken care of in your doctor’s office.  Emergency room fees are outrageous and there is no need to pay more if you don’t need too! You literally can save thousands of dollars by just going to your regular doctor for minor urgent care!
