Temple ReadyCare

Immediate Care for Minor and Sports Injuries

The Temple ReadyCare team is able to diagnose and treat most minor injuries that can occur at home, at play and at work. If an unexpected injury occurs, or you've experienced a gradual onset of tendon or joint pain, we are ready to care for you. All of our locations provide on-site X-rays and lab services.

Sports practices and games often take place when your doctor's office is closed for the day. At Temple ReadyCare, we can assess your injury and provide you that all-important initial care. We offer extended hours including weekday evenings, weekends and all holidays except Christmas.

Find a Temple ReadyCare location near you to treat your injury.
