Pediatrician vs. Urgent Care vs. ER: When should you go?
(FOX Rochester) Dr. Elizabeth Murray, spokesperson for American Academy of Pediatrics, sat down with us on Good Day Rochester Tuesday.
She gave us advice on when you should go to your Pediatrician vs. Urgent Care vs. the emergency department.
Her main point when dealing with any medical incident with your child is to stay calm.
She says make sure you take a breath and evaluate the situation.
If the injury or illness is minor, it might not be necessary to make an emergency room visit.
