Why fid the ER give my spouse a week treatment of antibiotics for an STD but the health department just have me a shot and two big pills?

Old vs new medicine: The er is not a good place to get primary care or std care or any kind of normal non-life threatening care. The doctor in the er gave an effective but old fashioned treatment.
