A Patient Centered Approach To Emergency Care

Having a medical emergency can be a scary time and visiting an emergency room for treatment is never a fun experience, especially if you have children along. Sitting in the waiting room for hours is never a great experience and even less so when you are hurting or sick! You may think your only option is a busy emergency room attached to a hospital.
