The Baton Rouge location of the Bone and Joint Clinic of Baton Rouge will open a walk-in weekend clinic Saturday, July 20. The new Orthopedic Weekend Clinic is located at 7301 Hennessy Boulevard, which is within the existing facility of the Baton Rouge Bone and Joint Clinic. Hours for the weekend clinic are 10 AM to 5 PM Saturday and Sunday. Additionally, the Bone and Joint Clinic of Baton Rouge recently announced extended hours of 7 AM – 7 PM Monday through Friday. Any orthopedic injuries such as sprains, strains, fractures, tendonitis, and joint problems are treated in our walk-in clinic.
The extension of weekday hours and the addition of the weekend clinic are an effort on the part of the Bone and Joint Clinic of Baton Rouge to provide increased access to the top orthopedic providers for the Baton Rouge community. The expanded hours and weekend clinic are expected to provide low wait times for patients and a co-payment that's less expensive than a trip to the emergency room.
"We understand that injuries and accidents happen around the clock," said Mark Levert, CEO of The Bone and Joint Clinic in Baton Rouge. “Whenever and wherever your injury occurs within the Baton Rouge area, we want to ensure that our experienced and knowledgeable providers and staff are available for you."
Appointments are not required, and patients will be seen on a first-come, first served basis. Long-term problems, like overuse injuries and chronic joint pain, are best treated by making an appointment at any of our three locations.
