Thank you for choosing Emergency Care Consultants

 

Our physicians and advanced practice providers staff several Twin Cities emergency departments. Our mission is to provide outstanding emergency care for any patient at any time, and we strive to meet that goal for every single visit. Your emergency department visit concludes upon your departure from the ER, regardless of whether you were discharged home or required admission to the hospital. Often times questions may come up following your visit.

How Can I Review my Laboratory and Radiology Results?
  • Most results are available for review prior to your discharge, and are printed on your discharge paperwork.
  • If you no longer have your discharge paperwork, you may access much of the information online through Allina MyChart
Can I speak with my ER doctor or provider after my visit?
  • The ER provider cared for you is not available for additional questions after the conclusion of your visit
  • In most cases, however, patients receive verbal and written discharge instructions which may answer your questions
  • Consider contacting your primary care provider or assigned specialist
  • If you believe you are experiencing an emergency medical event, please seek help in the emergency department.
Why am I getting a bill from Emergency Care Consultants?
  • You should expect to receive more than one bill for your recent emergency visit. The bill you receive from us is for physician or ER provider services. You will most likely receive a separate bill from the hospital for facility services.
