Urgent Care: Medical Services at Lower Costs

Botsford's Midwest Urgent CareHospital emergency rooms (ERs) focus on medical emergencies. They are not set up to focus on routine health care. If you go to an ER for a routine problem:

Go to the ER if you think you are having an illness or injury that is a matter of life and death. Otherwise, call your doctor’s office first, or go to an urgent care center.  It will save you money and time.

Most Health Problems Are Not Emergencies
You may want to take care of the problem right away because you feel sick or uncomfortable, but usually nothing bad is going to happen to you if you wait a bit. Then again, you don’t always know that for sure. Some problems that seem minor can become serious if you ignore them. If you are choosing the ER because you can get in without an appointment, keep in mind the high price you will pay for that convenience. In the past, an ER was the first option. Now, use an urgent care center instead.
