Bone, joint and muscle injuries and conditions are painful and need prompt treatment. As part of its commitment to caring for the orthopaedic needs of the greater Olympia area, Olympia Orthopaedic Associates recently opened two convenient walk-in rapid orthopaedic care (ROC) clinics for acute orthopaedic injuries. The newest location, just opened in May, is housed within the Westside clinic.
Before the ROC clinics opened, patients had been waiting in the ER for hours. “We can now easily get them in and out in 60 minutes,” says Clint Miller, MHS, PA-C. “This is a great option for on-the-job injuries—come in during a lunch hour or after work. It also saves the patient time and money to come straight to the provider.”
Providers at the ROC clinic offer immediate care for urgent injuries, such as sprains and strains, dislocations, fractures, and sports injuries, as well as injured, painful or swollen joints. Patient services include X-ray, casting and splinting, and physical therapy, as well as medical equipment.
“Walk-ins are welcome and most are surprised that they do not need a referral,” Miller says. “People are so excited to get in and out with care in a compassionate manner.”
“We are really efficient in what we do and we are mindful of the patient’s time,” adds Lynn M. Page, PA-C. “I have patients who want to see us again and again. This is the ultimate compliment.”
