Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic Coming to FROC
Injuries don’t happen on a schedule, and timely care shouldn’t have to, either. On June 4th, 2018, Front Range Orthopedic & Spine’s Orthopedic Walk-in clinic will be open to provide after-hours treatment for orthopedic injuries that don’t fit clinic hours. FROC is excited to announce that we’re providing walk-in care at our Longmont location.
It’s never a good time for a break, sprain or tear, but with our Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic, patients can receive quick, quality treatment without resorting to emergency room care – usually more quickly and certainly at less cost than that a trip to the ER.
Emergency rooms treat a wide variety of illnesses and injuries, many of which are life threatening. Intake nurses at emergency rooms triage the severity of patients’ condition and place the most urgent, life-threatening illnesses at the front of the line. This process, known as triage, was developed for the life-or-death urgency of ER care, but doesn’t fare well for patients with less severe injuries – like broken arms, sprained ankles or any of the injuries Front Range Orthopedics & Spine Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic treats. Patients with orthopedic injuries can often face long waits as ER staff saves lives.
At Front Range Orthopedics & Spine Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic, we’re not treating life-threatening injuries, which allows us to focus on patients with musculoskeletal injuries in a more timely manner, and eliminates the excessive wait times typical of ER care.
Front Range Orthopedics & Spine Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic is also more affordable than an emergency room visit. Most insurance providers offer a much more forgiving copay for walk-in / urgent care facilities than ER visits, and out-of-pocket costs are typically 15-20 percent of the cost of ER care, according to Debt.org.
Front Range Orthopedics & Spine Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic is open weekdays from 4-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Providing patients with orthopedic injuries easier, faster and more cost effective access to care.
