Treating athletes with sports and exercise-related injuries and conditions.
A sports medicine physician has specialized training to prevent and treat sports and exercise-related injuries. They not only treat strains and sprains, but their training allows them to treat athletes with medical conditions such as asthma or diabetes.
What to Expect During Your Visit
When you arrive, a staff member will greet you and check you in. A clinical associate will escort you to an exam room where a sports medicine physician will see you. If the physician orders X-rays, you will be directed to our radiology department. After taking X-rays, you will return to the exam room where the physician will be able to discuss the results on the computer screen. You will receive a diagnosis and treatment plan in a clinical summary upon leaving the office. This visit may take an hour.
If you primary care doctor is in the Advocate network we will be able to send the information directly to them regarding the visit immediately afterward. If they are not we will mail a summary of the visit to their office.
Although we provide a list of accepted insurance providers on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact your insurance provider.
