Injuries are unplanned. When they occur, emergency room visits can be very expensive. On the other hand, the sooner you receive proper treatment of an injury, the faster and easier your recovery will be.
Walk-ins are welcome Monday through Friday from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm at our Iowa City location. No referral or appointment is necessary to be treated by an orthopedic provider who specializes in muscle, bone, and joint care.
At SteindlerSTAT we strive to be in-network with all major insurance carriers and Medicare programs. Specialty office insurance copays will apply, but you will not be charged any emergency room fees. We accept all major credit cards, checks, and cash.

Why go to STEINDLERSTAT ?
We are a one-stop-shop! The means our Steindler team can easily coordinate with all of the services offered at Steindler Orthopedic Clinic, including physical therapy, hand therapy, pain specialists, imaging (MRI and x-ray) and orthopedic surgery. It’s also possible to be seen by any of these services on the same day. This saves you time and gets you on the road to recovery after an acute injury as fast as possible.
What locations offer STEINDLERSTAT ?
Urgent orthopedic walk-in care is available at our Iowa City location Monday through Friday from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
What are the benefits of visiting your STEINDLERSTAT ?
In short, we offer musculoskeletal expertise for sudden (acute) and sports-related injuries in athletes and patients of all ages. When visiting the emergency room or urgent care for an orthopedic injury, patients will often be given an x-ray and instructions to follow-up with a specialist. Eliminating this additional visit saves time, is more cost-efficient, and accelerates the recovery process for the patient. We also offer significantly shorter waiting times than an emergency room, and your visit can cost up to 80% less than an ER visit.
Because the walk-in injury clinic at STEINDLERSTAT offers services that match our full-time clinic, you have the opportunity to return to the same team of dedicated providers for follow-up care after your walk-in visit. Through Steindler and STEINDLERSTAT we offer:
• Timely care of your injury including x-ray, casting, bracing and crutches if needed
• Highly trained orthopedic and sports medicine specialists on staff
• Shorter wait times than in emergency rooms
• Services are considered in-office and are usually less expensive than an emergency room
Do I need an appointment?
No appointment is necessary for STEINDLERSTAT. Simply walk-in and let the reception staff know you are there for a STEINDLERSTAT appointment. For expedited service, please feel free to call the number above and let us know you are planning on coming in for an urgent care visit. Patients will be served on a first-come, first-served basis.
How long will I wait?
You don’t need an appointment – just walk in! We’ll always try to get you care soon as possible. Please know that your wait time will depend on how busy the clinic is, and what conditions are being treated.
How is my visit billed?
We bill orthopedic urgent care visits as a specialty office visit, as opposed to an urgent care visit. Your co-pay will reflect this visit type as well. We accept most major insurance plans. It’s a good idea to call your insurer if you have questions about your coverage, how much you’ll pay, or if your insurance requires a referral for an orthopedic office visit.
Do you accept all insurance types?
We accept the same insurance plans for our urgent care services that Steindler Orthopedic Clinic normally accepts—this includes most commercial insurance, Medicare, and Medicare Advantage plans. If you have a question about your insurance coverage, please contact us prior to visiting the office. Make sure you bring your current insurance card with you to your visit! Pre-payment of services will be required for patients without insurance or patients covered by insurance plans in which the office does not participate.
What is the cost? Do I have to pay a copay?
Your visit will be billed exactly as a regularly scheduled office visit at our facility. Cost varies depending on services rendered, but office visit fees will be significantly less than those you would be charged at an emergency room. Your regular specialty office visit copay will be due at the time of your visit.
When should I come to the urgent care versus scheduling an appointment with my doctor?
Consider visiting our STEINDLERSTAT if you experience an accident, sudden injury, or other acute pain. Sprains and strains, closed fractures, dislocations, minor lacerations, and sudden-onset back or neck pain are all examples of injuries we may be able to treat at STEINDLERSTAT.
If you have an ongoing condition or have been consistently treating with one of our providers, you should contact our office to schedule a regular appointment.
Which provider will I see when I come in?
The STEINDLERSTAT team consists of physicians and physician assistants.
