Well, the answer is as quickly as you need to. In other words if you need emergency medical services, then you need to take the ambulance to the E.R. If it's a type of injury that you believe you can wait or that gets worse over time, then you want to go to the doctor as quickly as possible. A preference would be your family doctor who knows your medical history and has treated you over a long period of time, so that would be the priority. However, don't wait too long to get to your doctor. If it's going to take a few days to get you an appointment, then what I would recommend is to go to an urgent care facility that could see you right away. You don't want to let too many days pass until you get to a doctor. You want to go right away.
