We’re here to help when you get injured.

A friendly, walk-in clinic for strains, sprains, fractures, cuts and scrapes, Injury Express provides care under the medical direction of a physician with over 20 years experience as an emergency room provider, and who is backed by the expertise of highly-skilled sub-specialty orthopedic surgeons.

We care about your time and finances. Here’s how:


Convenient care from specialists with the services you need on site, including radiology, MRI, splinting and casting, as well as therapy. Appointments for acute follow-up can be scheduled on the spot with a specialist.

Less expensive

Offering more economical access to specialized medical care at the cost of an office visit vs. the expense of an emergency room visit.
