Dr. Burton agrees that cost issues are a major difference between ER treatment and urgent care options. “There is a substantial price difference, but it depends upon the medical problem and what level of treatment is required before you can make that comparison,” Dr. Burton says. “In general, urgent care charges are less. The ER is equipped to handle much more complicated, costly interventions.” There are other reasons visiting an emergency room for a relatively minor situation may cost you significantly more than visiting your primary care physician or an urgent care facility.

It opened with a lot of fanfare in 2004, but Poplar Grove Golf Club nearly closed last year when the previous owners went into bankruptcy. New investors have taken over and they're working to bring the Amherst County landmark back to its former glory. It didn't take long for golfer Jeffrey Reed to notice some big changes when he tee'd off at Poplar Grove Wednesday. "I love it," said Reed, who traveled from Georgia to play at the course.  "They've cut the rough and the range is really nice now. " It's a far cry from what he saw in previous visits.

The scary reality is that there is no cure and the number of new HIV cases is rising in Southwest Virginia. "You don't see the faces of people who are gone and look very ill on television anymore. You don't hear a lot about it," said Elaine Martin, the HIV Prevention Director with the Virginia Department of Health.

When you think of allergies you probably think of sneezing and wheezing, but there's another type of allergy that's relatively new. It can make it painful to swallow. This allergy can affect your esophagus which is the tube that transports food to the stomach. The allergic reaction is called eosinophilic esophagitis, a type of white blood cell (eosinophil) builds up in the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach (esophagus) as a reaction to foods, allergens or acid reflux, according to the Mayo Clinic website.
