And when they do it, they truly need to be seen. And I think to providing their service is a key thing and same day service. If we can't do anything on here, we'll kind of subside a problems as much as possible.
If we need ended up referral any places. But we do take care of the emergency. Because you know what? When you see the patient's eyes or their face after you've taken care of the emergency case, they really, really appreciate you. They really feel like you saved my life.
