Tahoe Fracture Doctors Are Available to Assist Patients in the ER

Tahoe Fracture Doctors in ER Carson City NVHave you ever had to visit an emergency room (ER)? It can be a very stressful experience. In many cases, patients are able to obtain the same treatment at urgent care clinics for less time and money, but the ER is the better choice when an injury is life- or limb-threatening. The skilled team at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic is glad to provide the following information, which may make your next visit to the ER an easier and less nerve-wracking experience.

What Happens When You Visit the ER?

When you first arrive at the ER, you’ll have to check in at the front desk, where you’ll provide basic information including your name, address, and date of birth, as well as a brief explanation of your injuries (if you’re unconscious or otherwise unable to answer questions, the ER team will try to get this information from a friend or family member, or by searching for any emergency medical information listed on jewelry, in your wallet, or on your phone). After you’ve checked in, you’ll be examined by a triage nurse, who will take your vitals and determine how quickly you require medical attention. If the nurse decides that you don’t require immediate attention (preference is always given to patients with more severe conditions), you’ll be directed to a waiting area. When a physician is ready to see you, he or she will conduct an examination, order diagnostic testing, arrange for consultations with specialists (if needed), and provide treatment.

Can You Request Tahoe Fracture Doctors in the ER?

Yes, you can! Many people don’t know this, but if you visit the ER with an orthopedic injury, you’re not required to see the on-call orthopedic doctor. Instead, you can request that the ER team call in one of the doctors from Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. If you’re already a patient at our clinic, you’ll have the benefit of being treated by a doctor who’s familiar with your medical history, as opposed to one who will need to start from scratch. This is also a great option for patients whose primary care physicians have already referred them to our office, even if we haven’t yet begun treatment.

We look forward to providing an even wider range of services to the residents of Carson City, Gardnerville, Minden, and surrounding communities.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"

I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life.

"Dr. Jones and his staff through the surgical procedures and other methods they have performed over the years have enhanced my daily living experience dramatically. I am leading a more productive life without the daily pain I dealt with in the past. I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life."
