Minor Injury Walk-in Clinic

Our team of health professionals can provide expert assessment and treatment for patients with acute injuries such as sprains, cuts, bruises, and fractures that do not require hospitalization. The Minor Injury Clinic is set up to assess and treat most non-life threatening bone, joint and soft tissue injuries.

If your problem is chronic in nature (long-lasting or recurrent), we can help you by scheduling an appointment with one of our Sport Medicine physicians.

What can I expect at the Minor Injury Clinic?

When you arrive in MIC your condition will be assessed by a nurse.  A clerk will then ask you for demographic information and will provide you with a same-day appointment.  Patients with the most urgent issues will be given priority appointment times.  You are welcome to leave the clinic and return for your appointment or you may choose to stay.  Either way, if your condition worsens, we ask that you let us know.

When you return for your appointment, please check in at the front desk.  A nurse will further assess your condition and may refer you for an x-ray.

The doctor will examine/review your condition and recommend appropriate treatment and care.  If the doctor determines that you require follow-up care, you will be given an appointment to see the doctor or an athletic therapist.

Once the same day appointment capacity has been reached, the Minor Injury Clinic will be closed to non-urgent walk-in patients earlier than posted hours.  If your problem is chronic in nature (long-lasting or recurrent), then we can help you by scheduling a regular appointment with one of our Sports Medicine physicians.  Other alternatives include seeing your family doctor, a walk-in clinic, or local quick care clinics.

Will I need a follow-up appointment?

Not all patients need to be followed-up or require follow-up care by the Pan Am Clinic.  Many times, patients are best followed-up by the family physician.  If you do not have a family physician, we can help organize appropriate follow-up.

How long will I wait?

How quickly you are seen depends on the number of people who arrived before you and the seriousness of your condition.

What if I leave before the doctor reviews my x-ray?

If the nurse orders an x-ray and you leave before the doctor sees you, you should not assume we will be able to contact you with abnormal x-ray or test results.

What if my problem is not related to bone, joints or soft tissue?

For problems not related to bone, joints and soft tissue, we recommend you call or visit your family doctor first.  If your family doctor is not available, you may wish to go to the Urgent Care Centre at the Misericordia Health Centre.

What if my problem is life-threatening?

Anyone with a life-threatening condition should dial 911 or proceed to a hospital emergency room.
