You’re sick. You need medicine. And you have zero chance of seeing your doctor today. Now what?
We’ve all been there: what starts as a tiny cough Monday morning has turned into a full-blown fever, headache, and sore throat by Tuesday afternoon. You know you need to see a doctor, but your primary care provider is booked and you need to be better in time for a meeting on Friday. Should you head to an urgent care or ER? In your flu-addled state, it’s hard enough to stay hydrated and vertical, much less run a cost-benefit analysis.
