Dr. Alejandro Badia, M.D. F.A.C.S. hand and upper limb surgeon, founder of Badia Hand to Shoulder, got the idea of opening a specialty walk-in clinic in South Florida after hearing his patients, friends and colleagues comment about the high costs of services and the ridiculous long waits in the emergency room for broken bones, sprains, cuts, etc
OrthoNOW is the result of the growing need for more options. Before OrthoNOW, the only choice was the emergency room or urgent care where the wait can be up to 6 hours or more. Only to be referred back to a specialist, likely at OrthoNOW.
OrthoNOW is a walk-in care clinic that treats broken bones, sprains, cuts, sports, and workers’ compensation injuries. No appointment is necessary. OrthoNOW has an in-house digital X-ray, MRI, on-site operating rooms, provides follow up care, and rehabilitation.
