The throbbing and pressure in Jack’s head was relentless. Not one to typically get sick, he was becoming concerned about his intense headaches that started a week ago. An online search sent him into a panic when self-diagnosis tools led to worst-case scenarios.
As Jack hadn’t seen a doctor in years, he wasn’t sure where to turn. He called a handful of physicians on his new health plan only to be told appointments weren’t available for another few days, or that the doctor wasn’t accepting new patients. Scared that something was really wrong, he went to the ER. He figured it was the fastest way to get help.
