View Health Line

This is a free service in which you can call a nurse directly if you have any medical concerns.  The nurse will ask you a series of questions then give you a recommendation.  The nurse can advise you on how to treat the problem yourself, to see your family physician, or if a visit to the emergency room is necessary.  If you have a medical emergency,
call 9-1-1 as Healthline does not deal with emergency situations.
