Time is brain in case of acute ischemic stroke. Sooner you rush to the hospital, sooner you get the treatment leading to salvage of brain tissue from becoming permanently dead. So dont waste time visiting a general practitioners clinic if you have such kind of symptoms as it may lead to delay in treatment.
