Treating Broken Bones

Open 7-days a week, our doctors and medical staff can make a proper diagnosis to determine whether a bone fracture has occurred, and formulate a plan of action to get you on your way to recovery.

All Physicians Immediate Care clinics are equipped with x-ray systems operated by a licensed Radiologic Technologist. Our clinics also have the resources to stabilize and splint broken fingers, toes, and other mild fractures.

For extreme fractures, including compound fractures (if the bone has breached the skin), you should seek treatment at an emergency room or contact 911 for emergency treatment.
