LONGVIEW (KYTX) - In one year, 88,000 people came to the emergency room at Good Shepherd Medical Center.
The Longview hospital ranks as the 20th busiest E.R. in Texas and busiest in East Texas.
Doctors say a lack of primary care physicians means more patients looking for urgent care.
Three hospitals in San Antonio all ranked at the top of the state's busiest emergency rooms, with the rest of the top ten emergency rooms in Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth.
