What To Expect

What To Expect

When you check-in at one of our urgent care clinics, you will be evaluated by an orthopaedic-trained physician assistant. He or she will examine you and order an X-ray if needed. X-rays are taken at the clinic and reviewed with you during your visit. If required, more advanced tests like an MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, or blood work may be ordered.

Once a diagnosis has been made, a treatment plan will be created. That plan may involve simple rest, splinting, bracing, physical therapy, or further work-up. Please note, insurance coverage for items such as braces and boots may vary. Select cortisone injections may also be offered for shoulder, elbow, hip and knee joints.

At the end of your urgent care visit, a follow-up appointment will be scheduled with the appropriate orthopaedic specialist to ensure that your treatment is carried out and your symptoms resolved.
