Rapid Access

At the Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we evaluate your injury as quickly as possible. For every day you wait to have your injury assessed, you may miss a day of work, a night of sleep, or time from your favorite sport or activity. Patients can schedule an appointment Monday through Friday and be seen within 24 hours.

For more than 60 years, our physicians have cared for the bone, joint, and muscle injuries of children and adults in the Pacific Northwest. Many of our physicians undertake research and education projects, frequently attending and speaking at regional and national orthopedic and sports medicine meetings. That’s how serious we are about caring for you!

Our Rapid Access service is designed to accommodate people with injuries that are less than seven days old. For an appointment, please call (541) 868-3296.
