We have offer full x-ray services within our office, allowing for a prompt diagnosis and expert treatment for most orthopedic and musculoskeletal injures. Our staff will be able to help you coordinate all of your priority follow-up care with our orthopedic specialists, including any additional testing or surgical consultations that may be needed.
Your visit will be treated like a physician office visit. We will be billing your insurance company accordingly, and we accept most insurance plans.

Wait times at our Orthopedic Urgent Care Clinic vary, but we do our best to help you as quickly as possible. Typically, you would be seen much faster, and for less of a cost, than at the hospital Emergency Room.
