Carson City, Gardnerville & Minden Residents — Turn to Tahoe Fracture Quick Care for Musculoskeletal Urgent Care Services
Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic — the area’s premier orthopedic care center — is pleased to announce that we’ll be opening a musculoskeletal urgent care clinic in early 2019. The skilled physicians at Tahoe Fracture Quick Care will be providing first-class urgent care services to residents of Carson City, Gardnerville, Minden, and surrounding areas.
What Conditions Will We Be Treating?
The experts at Tahoe Fracture Quick Care will be providing treatment for a number of non-life-threatening musculoskeletal conditions, including:
Individuals with life- or limb-threatening conditions — such as heart attacks, strokes, compound/open fractures, or the inability to move or walk — should still seek treatment at an emergency room (ER). Similarly, people with chronic conditions (those with symptoms that have lasted for an extended amount of time) should make an appointment with their primary care physician or a specialist rather than visiting an urgent care clinic (we’ll still be treating a wide range of chronic orthopedic conditions at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic!).
Why Choose an Urgent Care Clinic?
Despite having access to a musculoskeletal urgent care clinic like Tahoe Fracture Quick Care, many people still opt to visit an ER for non-life-threatening conditions. In many instances, this can be a waste of time and money. Urgent care physicians are often able to offer the same level of care that’s provided in an ER, but urgent care costs are typically much lower than ER fees. Plus, because ER doctors have to prioritize life- and limb-threatening conditions, patients with non-life-threatening injuries often face long wait times.
