  • Sudden feelings of dizziness or disorientation
  • Chest pain that lasts longer than a couple hours
  • Slurred speech

If you are unsure you are dealing with a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 and tell them what is going on as calmly as you can. Keep in mind that the emergency room should only be sought in actual emergencies. If you are seeking treatment for a severe cold or fever because your doctor’s office is closed, you will be better served to contact your primary care physician or visit one of our convenient urgent care clinics.
