Doctors, Urgent Care, and Hospitals

Hospitals and Emergency Rooms

Hospitals and emergency rooms are very expensive, and are typically used in serious medical situations day or night. They are not used for routine visits and routine medical care, but should be used for true medical emergencies.

Visiting your primary care doctor is the least expensive treatment option. Use this for regular check-ups, if you are not feeling well, or if you have injured yourself (unless it is an emergency, in which case you should go to a hospital or dial 911).

For those with Virginia Tech’s student insurance, visit: Search for Virginia Tech, and then use the “Find a Doctor” tab on the left hand side.

Students with their own insurance can use the same link above or other similar tools, such as: WebMD’s Physician Directory, Health Grades’ Find a Doctor, or US News’ Find a Doctor. Make sure you contact the office to see if they accept your insurance before visiting.
