Emergency Room or Doctor Visit or Urgent Care Visit?

From the daily trek to work and home to the weekend warrior home improvement projects, accidents can and often do happen.

Sometimes it's hard to know if you should seek emergency care, urgent care or schedule an appointment with your provider. 

What do you need to know if you decide to go the emergency room for a condition such as having heart attack symptoms? What do you need to do before you arrive? Let Ochsner help you through life's little obstacles, hopefully with minimal injury.
