Frequently Asked Questions
Can NOWcare treat my injury?
Most musculoskeletal injuries are appropriate for visits to NOWcare. If you do not have an established provider at The Center and need to be seen the same day due to pain or a new injury, NOWcare is the right choice for you.
If you have a doctor at The Center, call us at 541-322-2352 to make an appointment with your provider. Your established provider will be able to provide continuity of care for your injury or condition.
How is NOWcare different from Urgent Care?
The providers at NOWcare specialize in injuries that are related to bones, joints, muscles, and their supporting structures. It is a walk-in service for patients that need to be seen the same day. Urgent Care is for all different types of illness or injuries requiring a same day evaluation including burns, colds, flu, allergic reactions, rash or skin irritations, mild asthma, etc. If you have a serious condition like stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, or major trauma go to the emergency room or dial 911.
What type of provider will I see at NOWcare?
NOWcare appointments are staffed by our expertly trained orthopedic surgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors, and physician assistants (PA-C). Most sudden onset injuries are evaluated and treated in a similar way. Your provider will immediately determine if your injuries require further diagnostic care and treatment, such as x-ray, splinting, crutches, ice, post-concussion testing, or compression. With this treatment and direction, NOWcare provides excellent care, further diagnosis, and facilitates patients returning to activities of daily living as quickly as possible.
Will my insurance cover a visit at NOWcare?
Providers at NOWcare have special training in musculoskeletal injuries and can treat them efficiently and effectively. If you are treated at an emergency room or urgent care for an orthopedic injury, they will typically have you follow up with an orthopedic office visit. You can save time and money by going directly to NOWcare.
