Miami, FL. December 2012 – OrthoNow, an orthopedic specific urgent care center, the first of its kind, has established operations in Doral, Florida.
OrthoNOW, an upscale, immediate care facility is exclusively dedicated to treating orthopedic and sports medicine injuries without an appointment. These injuries include fractures, sprains, concussions, open wounds, dislocations, and lacerations.
Dr. Alejandro Badia, a world-renowned hand and upper limb surgeon has founded this concept and developed the center into a first class urgent care facility that serves the patients with orthopedic injuries anywhere in Doral and the surrounding area. OrthoNow accepts most major insurance policies.
Prior to OrthoNOW, patients with orthopedic and sports medicine injuries had to choose between receiving immediate care at an emergency room or a general urgent care facility. At either facility, the orthopedic patient’s experience is normally frustrating, expensive, and inefficient. “Patients finally have a facility that treats their condition as its #1 priority. They no longer have to wait unnecessarily while other, higher priority patients are seen ahead of them”, said Dr. Alejandro Badia, the founder of OrthoNow. “When a patient is treated at OrthoNOW, a specialist sees him immediately and on-site. The injury is treated correctly during the first visit, eliminating the need for further visits to another surgeon or facility”, added Dr. Badia.
OrthoNow is an orthopedic urgent care center. OrthoNow offers its patients excellent orthopedic care on an immediate basis, resulting in a significantly improved patient experience. While orthopedic related pain and injuries are the dominant reason why patients visit hospital emergency rooms, they are typically a lower priority to other emergencies such as heart, asthma and trauma conditions. OrthoNow centers are fully integrated facilities equipped with on-site x-ray and MRI services and accept all forms of insurance.
