Johnson City Ortrthopedic Urgent Care Clinic
At our Johnson City Orthopedic Urgent Care clinic, we provide immediate care for acute orthopedic trauma injuries as well as everyday aches and pains. Whether you had a fall or suffer from chronic joint pain, our Johnson City providers, Kristin Righi and BJ Earl, look forward to providing you with experienced care and getting you on your way to a quick recovery.
What We Treat
Our Johnson City Orthopedic Urgent Care is intended for very recent injuries, sprains, or closed fractures. If you are bleeding from your injury, please proceed directly to a hospital emergency room.
We proudly offer the following at our Johnson City Orthopedic Urgent Care clinic:
- Arthritis management
- Corticosteroid injection
- Fracture care
- Fracture reduction (realignment of broken bones)
- Immediate X-ray evaluation
- Referral to an orthopedic specialist
- Sports injury evaluation
- Surgical referral
What We Do Not Treat
Our Johnson City Orthopedic Urgent Care does not do follow-up visits. Patients in need of a follow-up visit will need to have one scheduled with a provider in the office. Our Johnson City walk-in clinic also does not see lacerations or provide viscosupplementation injections. Additionally, if you are suffering from a long-term or chronic condition, such as back pain, unless there has been a serious and very recent change to your condition, our clinic is not the right place to be treated. We ask that you please make an appointment to see one of our doctors for the treatment of your long-term condition.
What to Expect
Because patients are seen in our Orthopedic Urgent Care without appointments, we are not always able to predict the wait before you see the physician assistant or nurse practitioner.
If you do not have insurance that covers your visit to the clinic, you will be asked for payment before being seen.
At Appalachian Orthopedics, we know that injuries occur when you least expect them. That’s why our doctors and additional providers are proud to offer extended clinic hours at our Johnson City location to treat patients who are suffering from acute orthopedic injuries and conditions.
When you need us, we’re here.
