"Direct Orthopedic Care, DOC, is a walk-in, immediate access orthopedic clinic. We are open 7 days a week with no appointment necessary. If you have an orthopedic injury or chronic condition, you can receive immediate care by orthopedic specialists without the time or expense of an ER visit.
The ER will refer you to orthopedic experts for surgery, placing a cast on a broken bone, physical therapy treatment or more thorough diagnosis of an injury or condition. So why not eliminate additional expenses by skipping the ER and going straight to DOC?
The DOC team consists of Board-certified, Fellowship trained Orthopedic Surgeons and specialty-trained Physician Assistants; Pain Management physicians and Pain Management specialty-trained Physician Assistants. You can avoid the wait at the ER by coming to DOC first. There is never a facility fee or high co-pay at DOC."
