Same-Day, Immediate Orthopaedic Care Helps Patients Avoid Crowds, Wait Times and Exposure in the ER or Urgent Care
FAIRLAWN, Ohio, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- During the COVID-19 pandemic, Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center continues to offer QuickCare orthopaedic services for the expert treatment of joint, muscle and bone-related injuries, such as breaks, sprains, strains and minor lacerations. These services are provided at four locations in Canton, Green, Hudson and Montrose on a walk-in basis without an appointment for patients age 5 years and older.
Unlike an ER or urgent care, Crystal Clinic QuickCare does not provide care for any illnesses, thus reducing patients' exposure to those who may be contagious.
"Our medical providers focus solely on orthopaedics, so receiving treatment at Crystal Clinic QuickCare can help reduce your exposure to infectious illnesses, especially during this time of heightened awareness and vigilance," said Curtis Noel, M.D., Medical Director of Crystal Clinic QuickCare. "It also offers significantly shorter wait times, and is insurance-friendly and less expensive than an emergency room or general urgent care visit."
In strict compliance with COVID-19 safety measures, upon arrival to Crystal Clinic QuickCare, patients will have a temperature screening and will be asked about potential exposures to coronavirus. As a precaution, those with a temperature greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit will not be seen at that time. Crystal Clinic is following recommendations from the CDC and the Akron Regional Hospital Association regarding screening and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
If you are ill or have been in close contact with someone who may have coronavirus, please do not visit Crystal Clinic QuickCare. Contact your primary care physician.
