If you’re not in a position to be at risk for dying, going to the ER isn’t the best option. It’s not necessary to be letting your health concerns influence your life. If you suffer from an uncomplicated health issue, such as Strep throat, pink eye, or even strep, you can get inexpensive care at the lowest level of health clinics that is the walk in clinic. Many clinics can be found in shops like pharmacies. They can offer basic diagnostic services as well as help you access the care you need before your health is affected. A different option is urgent care. These facilities are better suited for those who don’t have an immediate issue and don’t have a significant danger of death. For example, they may have the ability to draw blood, or even take xrays. Don’t allow your health to be so bad that your only choice is going to the ER. If you prefer, visit an walk-in or urgent care facility when you’re able.
