SeveralPossibilities: ER rarely best place for good help. Why? 1st Med Sys not=health: http://goo.gl/Blh6rW. ERs have Hi law suit rates, focus=fast/defensive medicine; not problem solving/helping you better understand&troubleshoot as primary decision maker. Medicine=LowTech. Most problems=NOT revealed by exams, usual blood & Imaging tests. Why? Humans=far more complex than any of these can ever show. Go for better!
