In an effort to relieve some of the stress COVID-19 is putting on hospital emergency departments and urgent cares, The Carrell Clinic is accepting walk-in patients with acute bone, joint and muscle injuries and conditions. Patients seeking orthopaedic care that do not have symptoms of or exposure to coronavirus or a workers’ compensation injury are encouraged to walk in and be seen Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the practice’s Dallas office, located at 9301 N. Central Expressway, Tower I, Suite 500.

Committed to the health and well-being of the community, their patients and their staff, the practice is taking precautions to help protect everyone while continuing to offer needed orthopaedic care. Patients will go to the first floor of Tower I for screening before being sent to the appropriate specialty-trained orthopaedic provider for care.
