RENO, Nev. (PRWEB) May 06, 2019
On April 29, 2019, Swift Urgent Clinic, an orthopedic urgent clinic, opened a 2nd location in Reno at 9990 Double R Blvd. Suite 201. The Swift clinic is in a shared building with SpineNevada Minimally Invasive Spine Institute.
Swift Urgent Clinic provides orthopedic specialized care for unexpected bone and joint injuries including fractures, lacerations, dislocations and sprains. The urgent clinic also provides spine specialized care for acute back and neck injuries. An added feature is that no appointment is needed and consumers can walk-in for quick access to specialized healthcare.
“There are a number of minor acute injuries, such as simple fractures, sprains and lacerations, that need prompt medical care but aren’t appropriate for the hospital emergency department,” explains Bruce Gallio, PA-C, Director for Swift Urgent Clinic. “It was important for us to improve access for specialized care for these type of injuries. Our orthopedic trained providers have the necessary experience to get the diagnosis right the first time. This allows consumers to avoid the hospital emergency visit and go to Swift for specialized healthcare at a lower cost.”
