Are you a candidate for our Sports Injury Urgent Care?

This clinic is specifically for student athletes who have sustained an acute injury during practice, games, &/or conditioning. A recent, sudden injury, requiring prompt care, is considered acute.

Are there age requirements for treatment?

Our Sports Medicine providers will typically treat children at any age for a sports related injury.

What should I do if I have a sports related injury but it is not an acute injury?

If you have a sports related injury that does not fall under the description of acute, please call our office to set up an appointment. Although your condition may not fall under the acute category, we are typically able to offer an appointment time within 24 to 48 hours of your call. 

What do I need to do prior to coming into your office?

If you are new to our practice or have been a patient with us before but have not updated your information with us in the last year, you will need to register with our Secure Patient Portal. Here, you will set up an account and fill out our online forms. For further details regarding our patient portal, please refer to the link: Patient Portal Info and click on “Patient Portal Overview”
