A million things go through your mind when you are confronted with an emergency. Knowing a little bit about our emergency department and what to expect—before you need us—will help. Here are a few of the questions that we get asked most often.
What should I bring to my emergency department visit?
Be sure to bring your medications and dosages and most current medical history, if available. Also know who your primary doctor is and which physician should receive information from this visit.
What can I expect during my emergency department visit?
You can expect testing, care from board-certified emergency physicians and specially trained registered nurses, as well as a referral to a specialist if your condition cannot be diagnosed in the emergency department. We will admit you to the hospital, if need be, and prescribe medications for treatment.
