Carlsbad CA— Direct Orthopedic Care, an orthopedic-only urgent care clinic treating orthopedic conditions and injuries in both adults and children, has opened its first location in Southern California. The new Carlsbad office, which will be open for business on March 16, will provide Guests with immediate access to orthopedic care, with no long wait time and no high facility fees.
“DOC offers walk-in, immediate access to high-quality orthopedic care that has been previously unavailable in Southern California. Now, anyone with an orthopedic issue from an acute injury to chronic pain can be seen in minutes by an orthopedic expert without an appointment,” said Dr. David Hassinger, founder and CEO of Direct Orthopedic Care. “Besides being a more convenient choice for orthopedic care, Direct Orthopedic Care is a much more cost-affordable alternative to the high expense associated with an emergency room visit.”
The Direct Orthopedic Care team is led by Board-certified orthopedic surgeons and orthopedic specialty-trained Physician Assistants that are immediately available to serve patients experiencing any type of orthopedic pain or condition, with no appointment needed.
“With the Affordable Care Act, we have seen patients forego care because of an increase in high deductibles and out-of-pocket costs associated with a referral to an orthopedic specialist or an expensive emergency room visit,” said Dr. Hassinger. “At Direct Orthopedic Care there is no facility fee and we strive to be in-network with all insurance providers to ensure co-pays and out-of-pocket charges are kept to the lowest amounts possible.”
Direct Orthopedic Care Guests can receive treatment for everything from fractures to severe sprains, strains and ligament tears. DOC is also the more convenient alternative for injection therapy to help those suffering from chronic joint or osteoarthritis pain.
The new Direct Orthopedic Care office is located at 6125 Paseo Del Norte, Suite 110 in Carlsbad, CA. The new office celebrated its grand opening on Tuesday, March 14 with a ribbon cutting ceremony, and will begin serving Guests on March 16. Hours are Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday – Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. with no appointment necessary. For more information, visit www.directorthocare.com.
