Have you ever felt ill at night, but your local clinic is closed, and went straight to the emergency room?

It is no longer a secret that emergency rooms in the United States are always operating over the capacity. It leads to lowered quality of the treatment and patient often ended up having an unpleasant experience due to lack of attention and long wait times.
