Are you wondering whether you should you go to your doctor's office or the hospital's emergency center? The Harris Health System's Ask My Nurse service gives you a quick, easy, and free way to decide.
In an emergency center, doctors and nurses must care for the sickest patients first. For others who may not be quite so sick, that may mean a long wait — even if you or someone in your family has a fever, nausea, stomach pains, or other symptoms. This can be frustrating.
To be sure you or your family do not have to wait in a busy, crowded emergency center unless you really need to, call Ask My Nurse at 713-634-1110.
Experienced nurses are available to help you and answer your questions seven days a week, 7 a.m.-9 p.m.
