Bone Fracture Treatment Concord and Lafayette CA

Can STAT MED Urgent Care Treat a Bone Fracture? Yes.

Accidents happen, and when they do, we are here for you -- 7 days a week, including evenings and holidays. No appointment required.

In the event that your accident involves a suspected broken bone that is not life-threatening, you can confidently turn to STAT MED Urgent Care for the prompt treatment you need rather than wasting time and money unnecessarily by going to the emergency room or starting with your primary care physician who may not have needed x-ray or splinting technology.

Can I go to STAT MED Urgent Care for bone fracture care today? Yes.

The majority of our Bay Area clinics are open 7 days a week, including evenings and weekends.  These include Pleasant Hill / Concord, Livermore, and Lafayette. The one exception is our newest clinic, Dublin,  which is currently open 8am-6pm weekdays and will expand hours soon. In the meantime, STAT MED Urgent Care - Livermore is just 10 minutes away from our Dublin clinic.

Do I need an appointment to get bone fracture care at STAT MED Urgent Care? No.

No appointment is required to seek medical attention at STAT MED Urgent Care. If you'd like to save time,  though,  we recommend you pre-register online by clicking the link on our clinic locations page associated with the clinic that is most convenient for you.

Can the STAT MED Urgent Care clinics near me do the digital x-rays needed? Yes.

STAT MED Urgent Care offers on-site digital x-rays that help our practitioners to swiftly identify what type of fracture is present and what form of treatment is most appropriate. If you suspect that an x-ray might be needed on a Sunday, please go to either our Concord or Livermore clinic.

Does STAT MED Urgent Care take insurance, including Medicare? Yes.

STAT MED Urgent Care accepts most insurance, including Medicare. We also offer cash discounts and affordable cash rates Kaiser and other HMO subscribers. 

Are x-rays and bone fracture treatment at STAT MED's urgent care clinic expensive? No, especially compared to bills from an ER.

Your out-of-pocket costs will vary depending on a number of things, including the severity of the fracture, care needed to treat it, your insurance coverage co-pays and deductibles or our cash pay discounts. We are in-network with most major insurance carriers, but please contact your insurance carrier for specifics of your coverage.

Whether you have insurance or not, managing your medical care costs down is all about choosing your best care option that doesn't compromise on the quality of your care.

If your bone is so severely broken that it is life-threatening, the ER is a necessary expense.

For non-life-threatening fractures, though, the ER is unnecessarily costly and time-consuming. A better choice is STAT MED Urgent Care. While service capabilities in the urgent care industry vary by provider, STAT MED Urgent Care clinics have the staff and facilities to address 70% of the kinds of medical issues that many emergency rooms see.

Will my urgent care clinician refer me to a medical specialist if needed? Yes

STAT MED Urgent Care practitioners are happy to refer patients to any needed local medical specialist. While we are an independent, locally-owned urgent care, we know the qualified medical specialists in our communities so you will get to the right specialist for your needs.

Who will provide follow-up care for my bone fracture? You decide.

This is, in part, up to you. If you return to your primary physician, be referred to an orthopedist, or come back to visit STAT MED.  As our patient, you can be assured that you’ll always have somewhere to turn for expert guidance.
