Patients can reserve a space in the ER with new online service
Contra Costa Times

For some, real misery is sitting in an emergency room waiting hours for a doctor. Children cry, sick people cough and some guy with a bloody toe makes it to the front of the line because he is moaning the loudest. But now you can make an ER reservation as easily as saving a table at the corner cafe. For a small fee, patients at San Ramon Regional Medical Center can call in, save themselves a place in line, then wait to see a doctor from the comfort of their home.
