Overview

We are a first come, first served, walk-in clinic, a great alternative to the long wait at the emergency room, where you’ll most likely be referred to an orthopaedic specialist anyway.

For children ages 0-16, we offer a Pediatric Ortho On-Demand clinic downtown at the Medical Office Building, 2nd floor.
