    take me to the hospital/doctor?

    1. Amy took me to the hospital and took care of me.
    2. Amy took me to the doctor and took care of me.
    #1 is supposed to be correct. Is #2 also acceptable?

    They both can have different meanings.

    If it's to mean medical treatment, than yes, they are both acceptable.

    (Of cause they both mean medical treatment, but going to a hospital does not guarantee you seeing a doctor.)
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
