Walk-In Hours

  • Mon–Thur: 4pm–8pm
  • Fri: noon–6pm

You Don't Need an Appointment. Just Walk In.

Orthopedic injuries in your bones, muscles, and joints can strike at any time. We offer same-day, walk-in appointments in the afternoons and evenings when most injuries happen.

Conditions We Treat

  • Sprains & strains
  • Bruises
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Tendonitis
  • Other orthopaedic pain that needs immediate care or won't go away

We do not treat concussions, lacerations (cuts), or chronic medical conditions. We also do not offer follow-up visits. At the end of your visit, our specialists will help you schedule follow-up care at the University Orthopaedic Center.

We cannot treat children under the age of five.

Convenient, Low-Cost Care

Our orthopedic specialists provide convenient, low-cost care with short wait times. Unlike an expensive visit to the emergency room, your visit will be billed as a regular clinic visit. Your insurance will only bill you for an office visit co-pay.

If you have a life-threatening injury, go to the emergency room.
