New Orthopedic “Urgent Care” Provides
Same Day Diagnosis and Treatment by Orthopedic Specialists

BEACHWOOD, OH – Patients suffering from sprains, aches or breaks can now see an orthopedic specialist in a day, because GO Ortho, housed at Ahuja Medical Center in Beachwood, is now seeing patients. Led by renowned Orthopedic Surgeon and consultant to the Cleveland Browns, Reuben Gobezie, MD, GO Ortho offers patients same day appointments with orthopedic specialists.

Typical emergency room and urgent care visits for joint, muscle and bone problems result in quick checks by a Physician’s Assistant, Nurse Practitioner or non-specialist physician and a referral to see an Orthopedic specialist. GO Ortho streamlines the process, enabling patients to be imaged, diagnosed and treated by an orthopedic surgeon/specialist right away.

“We recognize that Orthopedic injuries often occur when least expected,” said Reuben Gobezie, MD and GO Ortho founder. “Urgent care centers or emergency rooms may not be equipped to provide the comprehensive care for orthopedic injuries that you would receive at an orthopedic office. At GO Ortho, you are immediately seen by a specialist for the type of care you need.”

Bringing Value to Patients:
Saving Time, Money and Providing Orthopedic Expertise

Go Ortho provides Orthopedic expertise and advanced treatment, without a referral. Rather than showing up at an ER or urgent care and waiting to be seen by a non-Orthopedic specialist, patients call for a GO Ortho appointment that same day or the following day, depending on the time of their call. The expedited process saves patients time by avoiding waiting rooms and numerous office visits to different specialists.

There is also a significant monetary savings to the patient since a GO Ortho visit is charged as a regular office visit and not as an emergency room or urgent care visit that may come with high deductible and/or co-insurance costs to the patient. Finally, in the unlikely event that a patient needs surgical care, the GO Ortho specialists are well acquainted with the best orthopedic surgeons for each specialty in the Cleveland area and will arrange the best care for patients. GO Ortho patients will have their Orthopedic issues treated right away.

“We are unlike an ER or urgent care as we are able to control the flow of patient care resulting in much shorter times to treatment and evaluation,” Dr. Gobezie explains.

GO Ortho is equipped with advanced orthopedic imaging, including ultrasound, injection, x-ray and MRI. Conditions can be quickly and accurately diagnosed and efficiently and effectively treated. GO Ortho staff are trained to provide sophisticated treatments and can outfit patients in the latest in slings, braces and other support devices as well as casting.
