We offer evaluation by a sports medicine physician, on-site MRI, digital X-ray and physical therapists.

ONS ORTHO ACCESS PROGRAM

Assessing an athlete’s injury is not always easy when the game is ongoing and concerned parents are looking for answers.

Early evaluation can expedite an athlete’s recovery process. ONS Ortho Access is designed to assist athletic trainers and coaches on the field in determining the best course of action to take during the first crucial moments after an athlete is hurt.

Through ONS ORTHO ACCESS, our sports medicine team of physicians is available by phone 7 days a week to help evaluate whether the athlete should be seen at our office on a priority basis, go straight to the hospital ER, or if it is safe to manage them conservatively at home until the next working day. This service is available to athletic trainers and coaches only, at no charge.

Any athlete with an acute injury who is referred directly by coaches or trainers from schools registered in the Ortho Access program, will be seen by an ONS Sports Medicine specialists, regardless of insurance circumstances.  The initial visit will be billed to health and school insurance (incident and school insurance forms must be completed). Any cost for the initial visit that is not covered by insurance will not be billed to the family.  However, the family will be responsible for costs related to future care or diagnostics.
