Emergency Care In Dallas When You Need It

Emergency rooms are equipped to handle a number of different types of injuries and illnesses that require immediate attention. However, emergency rooms are only meant to be used for legitimate emergencies. Knowing what types of illnesses and injuries emergency rooms are designed for can be important the next time one strikes. Of course, the best thing to do in a life threatening emergency is to always call 911 and have them take you to an emergency care center in Dallas right away. Find out more below about the types of services Uptown Emergency Room provides and what services they are not designed to be used for. Before you run into a medical issue it’s always best to know what options are available to you so you are prepared for an emergency.


When Not To Use An Emergency Care Center In Dallas 

According to The Robert Wood Foundation, only half to a third of all emergency room visits are actually considered “emergencies”.  Most of us know that going to an emergency care center in Dallas means you need immediate care for a serious illness or injury that is potentially life threatening. So why the confusion? For many people, going to an ER can seem like the more convenient option, since there is no appointment required. However, using the emergency room when a visit to your regular physician or an urgent care was a more viable option, could end up causing you more issues in the future.

Here are just some of the reasons people have rushed to an emergency care center in Dallas, only to find out that the emergency room is not able to help them.
