You feel ill. Perhaps your balance is off and your ear aches, or you’re experiencing sinus pressure. Maybe it feels like the flu is coming on.
Unfortunately, you lack transportation because the car is in the shop. Or you live in an urban area such as Memphis, where it could take several hours to receive care in a crowded emergency room, or weeks to get an appointment to see a primary care physician. Or, like hundreds of thousands of rural Tennesseans, you live a great distance from a physician or an emergency room.
How do you get the care you need?
