OrthoRI Now

We can see you now!
Injuries don’t happen on a 9-5 schedule, and sometimes you can’t wait for an appointment. OrthoRI Now gives you an alternative to waiting in a crowded Emergency Room with same day access to Orthopedic Specialists for acute situations.

What are the benefits of going to OrthoNow?

In a nutshell: faster care, lower cost, expert care.

At OrthoNow, you will be seen by care providers who have specialized training in orthopedics and a better understanding of orthopedic injuries. If you are seen in an emergency room for an orthopedic injury, you will typically have to follow up with an orthopedic office anyway. We save you the time, hassle and cost of two visits. In addition, in the ER most orthopedic injuries have lower priority than other serious and life-threatening conditions, increasing your wait time.

 

Who staffs OrthoNowRI?

OrthoNow is staffed by certified orthopedic providers from Ortho RI practices. All members of the OrthoNow team are specially trained in treating orthopedic injuries. We are staffed by Physicians Assistants, Medical Assistants and x-ray personnel with an orthopedic surgeon on call at all times. Your initial consultation will be with one of our Physician Assistants experienced in orthopedic urgent-care. The PA will examine and assess your injury, order diagnostic tests, consult with one of our Orthopedic physicians, when necessary, and prescribe a definitive course of treatment targeted to the specific injury.

 

What about insurance and copays?

OrthoNow accepts MOST major insurances. If you have a question regarding your plan, please feel free to call the location closest to you. A visit to OrthoNow will have the same co-pay as a doctor’s office. If your plan requires one, your co-pay will be collected during the time of your visit. The co-pay at OrthoNow is generally less than what an emergency room co-pay would be.

 

What about follow-up?

With a visit to OrthoNow, you will have immediate access to Ortho RI physicians if you require any follow-up care. Our staff will coordinate an appointment for you before you leave the clinic. Of course, you may also be seen by an alternate provider if you choose. In addition, OrthoNow will enter a clinic note to document your care and share it with your primary care physician or family doctor.
