Orthopedic urgent care centers are a new and popular type of orthopedic service.  At Total Ortho Express in Massapequa and Deer Park, patients who sustain an orthopedic injury can use the orthopedic urgent care to have their injury seen by an Orthopedic Specialist. The three advantages of coming to Total Ortho Express instead of the emergency room include:

1. You do not have to wait as long

Emergency rooms provide numerous medical services. Total Ortho Express provides one. Waiting in long emergency room lines can be aggravating and annoying. Especially when an injury is a relatively common one like an ankle or wrist sprain. When patients choose a Total Ortho Express they do not have to wait in long lines. In some cases, they do not have to wait at all. This benefits patients because their and their family’s day is not totally consumed by waiting for their injury to be seen. This is one of the reasons that the patient satisfaction rate withTotal Ortho Express is significantly higher than that of the emergency room.

2. You can have your injury seen by an Orthopedic Specialist

Emergency room physicians specialize in emergency room medicine, which covers a wide array of medical disciplines. While emergency room physicians can diagnose and treat orthopedic injuries, they do not specialize solely in this matter. Because of their education, training, and experience, the Orthopedic Specialists at Total Ortho Express know more about orthopedic injuries than emergency room physicians. Patients who come to Total Ortho Express can have their injuries seen and treated by the most qualified medical professionals to do so.

3. Follow up appointments are easy to make 

In many cases, an emergency room physician will treat a patient’s injury and then refer the patient to an Orthopedic Specialist. Patients who choose Total Ortho Express over the emergency room bypass this step and save themselves time and money. They also are ensured that their follow up appointments are with an orthopedic specialist who works in conjunction with the orthopedic urgent care. All patient information is on file and paperwork and injury-related information does not need to be repeated. This is extremely convenient for patients as they do not need to worry about repeating themselves over and over.
