Brief Answer:
If you're having seizures you can visit the ER

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

short term appointments can be difficult to find. If you're having a seizure then this is a medical emergency and you can visit the ER.
There is always the option to visit a doctor in private practice. The hospitals are usually very busy. Private practice appointment availability may vary. Explain your situation to the secretary or the doctor and they'll probably try to help. Obviously I cannot provide specific information about Hudson, as I don't practice there, but this is the rule.

I hope you find my comments helpful!
You can contact me again, if you'd like any clarification or further information.

Kind Regards!

My coworker complained today that her left arm was really sore and was having trouble pickup up her iced tea, tonight she called and said her arm was still extremely sore and that her left leg was swelling . I ve suggested she go to ER, but she s not sure she should. Should I continue to encourage her to seek medical help rather than wait to see her primary care physician tomorrow???
