Has this happened to you? Your knee or shoulder starts hurting, you call the nearest orthopedic surgeon and they tell you the soonest appointment is months away. Either you wait and self-treat the area, potentially damaging the joint further, or you rack up bills because you settled for an urgent care clinic only to be referred to an orthopedic surgeon.

Many doctors will see patients a few days per week resulting in lengthy delays with scheduling appointments. Your body and your pain deserve the timely attention of your doctor. When choosing an orthopedic surgeon, don’t wait months for him to fit you in. Find an orthopedic surgeon who can see you sooner rather than later.
