Did you know that a bone fracture and a broken bone mean the same thing?

And did you know that broken bones are the most common reason people visit the emergency room?

In fact, fractures and broken bones are the most common orthopedic problems in the United States and affect around 6.8 million people each year.

At GuideWell Emergency Doctors, we know that life’s health emergencies happen without notice and usually at the most inopportune times. But when you have an urgent, non-life-threatening medical issue that needs prompt attention, the ER isn’t your only option.

Visit GuideWell Emergency Doctors when you need fast, personalized emergency care. We offer a high-quality health care experience, as well as service and convenience, all designed to keep you in optimum health.

Our Board-Certified Emergency Medicine Doctors are trained to treat patients of all ages. The medical team works together to diagnose and treat major and minor conditions—like breaks, joint dislocations, fractures, sprains and more.

To help us properly evaluate, diagnose and treat life’s emergencies, each of our facilities are equipped with on-site services, including:
  • X-rays
  • CT scans
  • Ultrasounds
  • Labwork
  • Limited pharmacy services
  • Direct admittance to a hospital if needed

If you believe that you or your child may have a fracture, please seek attention immediately. GuideWell Emergency Doctors can assist in getting you on the path to recovery quickly and effectively. We provide similar services you would receive at an ER, but with an average of 1/2 the wait time1 at 1/3 of the cost.2

If you’re unable to make an appointment with your primary care physician, come to GuideWell Emergency Doctors. We provide access to faster and more affordable quality emergency care when you need it.
