Our Expert Doctors


When should I go to the emergency room?

You should go to the emergency room if you are experiencing severe or life-threatening symptoms such as chest pain, difficulty breathing, severe bleeding, loss of consciousness, sudden weakness or numbness, severe abdominal pain, or any other symptoms that require immediate medical attention.

What should I bring with me to the emergency room?

When going to the emergency room, it’s helpful to bring your identification, insurance information, a list of current medications, any relevant medical records or test results, and contact information for your primary care physician. 

What are some common misconceptions or myths about emergency medical care?

One common misconception is that emergency rooms are only for life-threatening emergencies, but they also provide care for urgent and severe medical issues. Additionally, there is a myth that going to the emergency room always results in long wait times, but priority is given based on the severity of the condition, ensuring prompt care for life-threatening emergencies.

What can I expect during my visit to the emergency room?

During your visit to the emergency room, you will be initially evaluated by a nurse who will assess the severity of your condition. You will then be seen by a team of doctors who will perform a thorough examination, order any necessary tests, and develop a treatment plan.


Will I be able to see my regular doctor in the emergency room?

In the emergency room, you will be treated by an emergency medicine physician or a team of doctors specialising in emergency care. Your regular doctor may be contacted for consultation or follow-up care, but the immediate focus is on providing timely and appropriate emergency treatment.

How will I pay for emergency room services?

Emergency room services are typically covered by health insurance plans. However, it’s important to check with your insurance provider to understand your specific coverage, copayment, or deductible requirements. If you do not have insurance, emergency rooms are legally required to provide treatment regardless of your ability to pay.

What if my condition is not an emergency?

If your condition is not an emergency, it is generally recommended to seek care from your primary care physician or an urgent care facility. They can provide appropriate evaluation and treatment for non-emergency medical concerns in a more cost-effective and efficient manner.

Can I bring a family member or friend with me to the emergency room?

Yes, it is generally allowed to have a family member or friend accompany you to the emergency room. They can provide support and help communicate important information about your medical history or symptoms to the emergency team.

Will I receive follow-up care after my emergency room visit?

Depending on the nature of your condition, you may be provided with instructions for follow-up care. It is important to carefully follow any post-emergency care instructions, including medication regimens, appointment schedules, and any recommended specialist visits to ensure proper recovery and ongoing management of your health.

What should I do if I'm not sure if my condition requires a visit to the emergency room?

If you’re uncertain about the severity of your condition and whether it warrants a trip to the emergency room, it’s always better to prioritise your health and seek medical advice. Contact your primary care physician or a medical helpline to describe your symptoms. They can provide guideon whether immediate emergency care is necessary or if there are alternative care options available for your specific situation.
