PA-Cs are specially trained healthcare providers who are able to function with physician oversight but do not need direct supervision. PA-Cs can immediately determine what injuries require further diagnostic care and treatment, such as MRI, CT, Splinting, Pain Medications, etc. If needed, our PA-Cs have direct access to an orthopedic surgeon on call for more serious injuries.

If you are treated at an urgent care or emergency room for an orthopedic injury, they will typically have you follow up with an orthopedic office visit as your next step. Visiting our office first saves you time and money!

While 99% of musculoskeletal injuries are appropriate for visits to our walk-in clinic, there are certain instances when the emergency room or urgent care provides a better choice.

Wonderful Client Feedback

Great staff!  Love this place, would highly recommend. Had no issues after knee surgery!!

-Rod

Dr. Maurer’s honest approach to discussing options and talking TO me, not AT me, is a great comfort when making these big decisions.

-Lyle

Dr. Diehl was very kind and caring. I don’t think there is a person in this office who is not professional and personable. They go above and beyond for their patients.

-Patricia

Very impressed with Dr. Lessner. Very thorough and listened to me. He gave me multiple treatment options and involved me in the decision making. Highly recommend!

-Todd

I’ve recuperated very well with physical therapy after having both knees replaced here. I’m on my way to walking normally again and without pain. They take time to listen and explain everything completely.

-April

This has been one of the best medical care experiences I’ve had, from our initial consultation to post-op visits to physical therapy. Dr. Diehl and his team are a very caring, friendly, and professional group. I had a left knee injury (meniscus and ACL tears). Thank you!!
