Urgent Care Advantages
OrthoExpress Urgent Care is a “gateway provider”, allowing patients access to specialized, injury care, in a convenient, walk-in and after hours clinic for non-life threatening events such as sprains and broken bones. It’s important for our patients to know that urgent care should not be considered a replacement for ongoing primary care nor a substitute for emergency rooms, but rather an extension of accessible and immediate healthcare from specialized orthopedic healthcare providers. If you don’t have a primary care provider, start with urgent care. You can usually get in quickly, and most urgent care centers are open in the evenings and on weekends. They can tell you if you need to head to an ER. They can even help you refill a prescription.
The first clinic of its kind in the state, OrthoExpress is an immediate injury care clinic, where patients can walk in and be immediately seen by a team of specialists that day. If surgery is needed, orthopedic specialists at OrthoExpress will schedule an appointment for you, with your preferred provider, a diagnostic imaging center or an orthopedic surgeon, minimizing delays for healing. By going directly to an OrthoExpress for immediate injury treatment, patients can avoid extra appointments, as well as the typically higher costs of emergency room visits.
