It’s important to understand when you should visit your primary care physician, when urgent care is appropriate, or when you should seek treatment in the hospital emergency department. Anyone with a life- or limb-threatening illness or injury should seek treatment at the emergency department (ED). Those suffering chest pain or symptoms of a stroke should call 911. Pregnant women should seek care with their obstetrician or, in a pregnancy-related emergency, go directly to the ED.
