When injuries like sprains, strains, and fractures occur, OAM NOW Urgent Orthopaedic Care helps you get care quickly, for just the cost of a specialty office visit. Our clinic is staffed by an orthopaedic Physician Assistant who is able to provide an evaluation of your orthopaedic injury, as well as begin treatment and/or provide a plan of care for your injury. If radiology or an orthotic device is necessary, OAM NOW offers onsite X-rays and fittings for many types of splints or braces. Clinic staff also helps facilitate appointments for our MRI, specialty appointments with our physicians, and therapy appointments with our licensed therapists. Because our scale and patient volume are smaller than other urgent care clinics, OAM NOW can provide you with expert care while saving you time and money.

What Patients Are Saying

OAM NOW Urgent Care was exceptional. I walked in on a Friday afternoon about 3:30 with a bad foot injury. Two hours later I left after x-rays and a diagnosis. [My provider] was exceptionally competent, friendly, and informative. It is truly amazing that you can walk in late on a Friday and get great care. I can’t imagine going anywhere else for any orthopaedic injury.

-Jeff

The service and expertise at OAM NOW Urgent Care was top notch! [My provider] identified my pain, eased my concerns and provided a plan. Before I even left the parking lot, the physical therapy department had called me to set up an appointment. Thank you team!

-Jennifer

It was nice to be able to make one trip to a facility that specializes in orthopedics. My concerns were addressed in a timely, yet thorough approach.

-Valerie

[My provider] was so kind, went over my X-rays, explained everything, was so gentle when he gave me a shot in my knee.

-Janet

Thank you to the entire staff at OAM NOW. I came in with a very uncomfortable and painful knee issue. The staff noticed my discomfort and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable. My [provider] is the best PA I’ve ever meet with. Went through the exam and covered all the bases for my situation. The pain medication he prescribed is really working well. I would never go anywhere else than OAM.

-Shayne

Clear. Informative. Personable. Described exam in detail, confirmed that it matched symptoms. Shared X-ray and reviewed areas of concern and explained reasons for exacerbated pain. Answered questions clearly. Good eye contact, explained referral process clearly. I left feeling optimistic, clear about reasons for interventions and about expectations from the same.

-Barbara

Thank you for getting us in and splinting my son’s arm before the holiday weekend. Service was kind, professional, quick and efficient.

-Theodore

Met with [my provider], got X-rays, results, and a recovery plan all within 30-45 minutes or so. Very impressed with all the staff that assisted me. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this group.

-Matt

[Provider] was amazing with my daughter. Asked her questions directly and listened to her. Great explanations and instructions.

-Tessa

PA-C really knowledgeable and informative. Didn’t do any unnecessary tests. Very compassionate.

-Vicky

Great experience with OAM NOW. Communication with OAM is outstanding. They called back same day, registration was able to be done by following a link to complete before arriving. When I did arrive, I signed in and didn’t even have a chance to sit down before I was called back to have x-rays taken. All the staff were wonderful, kind, professional and answered any questions. [My provider] explained the x rays, conducted an exam explaining in detail through the course of the exam, until providing a diagnosis and treatment plan. I was thoroughly impressed with everything at OAM NOW. Got a follow up phone call from them before I even got home with post visit instructions. I would HIGHLY recommend OAM for any orthopedic needs.
