I was diagnosed w/ viral gastroenteritis I acquired while conducting research on Sapelo Island. I had a headache, diarrhea, elevated blood pressure, and allergy-like symptoms for two days.
I was given a shot of benadryl and sent on my way. They didn't treat my headache because "there's too much drug abuse out there." I have no history of drug abuse, and I seriously doubt people are abusing imitrex.
They also said I need to speak with my primary care dr to "find out why I'm getting headaches in the first place." Seriously!? This headache is acute!
To top it all off, they forgot to give me an excuse to miss work. My girlfriend had to drive back to get it.
I'm a biologist. I believe in conservative medical treatment, but this was ridiculous. $100 for a shot of benadryl in the hip.
On anorther note, the wait time was only 10 minutes because I had checked in online. The staff were friendly. But that should be a given.
