So where does AveraNow fit in? The emergency room is the best option for serious conditions such as heart attack. But if you’re sitting at home sick or injured, AveraNow is a great resource providing instant, 24/7 access outside of health care’s four walls.

How AveraNow can help

  • You don’t have time to make a clinic appointment.
