Did you know that Virginia Orthopaedic has an Urgent Care that is specifically designed for orthopaedic injuries called Virginia Orthopaedic Direct? We sure do! And did you know that Virginia Orthopaedic Direct has been featured in OurHealth Roanoke & New River Valley Magazine? It has! The January 2018 issue of OurHealth Magazine has chosen to feature the great work done at Virginia Orthopaedic Direct in their publication, and we couldn’t be more proud.
In addition to that fantastic recognition, 2 of our providers have earned honorable mentions in the “Best Bedside Manner” Award, Orthopedics Category of OurHealth Roanoke & New River Valley Magazine. Drs. Preston A. Waldrop and James Farmer, MD, have both been recognized by their patients as having an exemplary bedside manner when treating patients. Virginia Orthopaedic Direct is proud to recognize this achievement by our outstanding team of providers.
Virginia Orthopaedic Direct is an orthopaedic, walk-in, urgent care clinic that treats orthopaedic injuries with no appointment necessary. The urgent care clinic is staffed with orthopaedic specialists who have the training and knowledge necessary to treat acute and not-so-acute orthopaedic issues immediately, without having to endure the long wait times in Emergency Rooms during peak hours.
Orthopaedic patients benefit from Virginia Orthopaedic Direct, because they can be treated for minor sprains, strains, fractures, tendon issues, arthritis flare ups, sports injuries, on the job injuries and many more orthopaedic issues as soon as they occur. Also, because Virginia Orthopaedic Direct is managed and staffed by Virginia Orthopaedic Physicians, any follow up can be done at the main office where the patient records have already been transferred after their urgent care visit. This type of service saves time for the patient, who won’t have to spend valuable treatment time explaining the origins of the injury during a follow up visit.
If you are unsure if your injury is life threatening, or if you are suffering from additional symptoms that could affect your long term health, always go to an emergency room for care. But remember, Virginia Orthopaedic Direct urgent care is available for anyone who needs us: the student athlete, the weekend warrior, and the family who has mishaps that can happen to all of us.
Virginia Orthopaedic Direct is open Monday – Friday from 8 AM to 8 PM, Saturdays from 10 AM to 8 PM and Sundays from 12 PM to 8 PM to address your orthopaedic urgent care needs.
