When Should I Visit an Urgent Care
Injuries happen when you least expect them, and sometimes you can’t wait for a doctors visit to get the care you need. When urgent non-life-threatening injuries occur, orthopedic urgent care centers provide a cost-effective and efficient alternative to emergency room visits. With orthopedic-trained providers on call, you can now walk into any of our urgent care locations in Wake County, and skip the lengthy wait times of an ER visit.
At the Raleigh Orthopaedic Urgent Care Centers, our physician assistants and nurse practitioners are trained to handle a wide variety of serious – but not life-threatening – orthopedic injuries. We provide treatment for acute conditions, such as: musculoskeletal injuries, sprains, minor cuts, dislocations, casting, splinting, and more. In addition, our board-certified orthopedic surgeons are always on call and available for consultation to ensure that patients receive the best quality orthopedic care possible. Staffed with specialty-trained clinical assistants and X-ray technicians, our state of the art facilities also offer on-site diagnostic imaging such as X-rays and MRI.
For additional information, we encourage you to check out orthopedic urgent care vs. the ER vs. the physician’s office.
Why Choose Urgent Care
Most unexpected injuries do not require a trip to the emergency room. Raleigh Orthopaedic Urgent Care provides patients with immediate access to expert care, at the cost of a regular doctor’s office visit rather than the high cost of an ER visit. To help make using our practice and services as convenient as possible for our patients and families, Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic accepts many major health insurance plans.
Orthopedic providers are trained and skilled at identifying and treating bone, joint, and muscle injuries. At standard urgent care centers, these types of injuries are referred to an orthopedic specialist. Going through the referral process will increase the time spent traveling to receive appropriate treatment. You can avoid additional steps by going directly to a clinic designed to provide same-day treatment to orthopedic cases.
Unlike scheduling a primary care or specialist visit, there is no need to make an appointment at an urgent care center. Walk-ins are welcome. Urgent care is available 8am-8pm, 7 days a week at Raleigh Orthopaedic’s Edwards Mill location. We also offer urgent care services at our Holly Springs, Wakefield, and Garner clinics, Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm.
