When should you go to the ER for a broken finger?
I currently think I broke my finger, I just want to know when I should get help for it, And since you guys have the expertise, I thought it would be a good idea to ask here.

If you feel like you need to go to the ER, go to the ER. People literally go for diarrhea and stubbed toes. You won't be judged.

You’re asking for medical advice, which we don’t provide. Call your doctor and ask what they suggest.

Look at your copay for your medical insurance. An urgent care can get you an X-ray, splint, and pain meds if needed. It’s usually a lot cheaper to go to an urgent care.

Yeah, if you can safely drive yourself to Urgent Care, that's probably the best option.
