What makes us different

You do not need to be a MelroseWakefield Healthcare patient, but if you are, we will have easy access to your medical records and will send your doctor a report of your visit.

On-site X-rays

Our own radiologists read all X-rays and share results quickly. We provide care for simple fractures and dislocations, but if you have a severe or traumatic injury please visit the closest emergency department.

We can perform X-rays of the:

  • Ankle
  • Arm
  • Chest/lungs
  • Foot
  • Hand
  • Leg
  • Ribs
  • Wrist

If you are diagnosed with a simple fracture or dislocation, we will provide care with a bandage, sling, splint or Ortho-Glass® splint (a splint used before casting). Plus, as a part of a comprehensive health system, we will connect you with your doctor, orthopedist or specialist for any needed follow-up care.
