Some people, however, go to emergency clinics for common medical complaints, such as indigestion or fever. Their presence only aggravates the wait-time in an emergency clinic. A nurse responsible for triage will ask you questions about your present medical problem and about your medical history. He or she’ll also ask to see your medical health card. If your medical condition is serious, you will probably get to see a doctor fairly quickly. If your condition is severe, you may have to stay in the hospital. If your condition isn’t serious, you’ll likely have to wait a very long time to see the doctor, sometimes as long as eight hours or more. After your consultation, the doctor will likely advise you to go to a medical clinic for the follow-up.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
