March 9, 2021 -- Beginning Wednesday, March 10, Reid Health will expand its orthopedic services with new walk-in availability three days of the week at the Reid Orthopedic Center.
Care for musculoskeletal issues -- those dealing with the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons -- will be available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Friday at the center, 1400 Highland Road in Richmond.
"We are committed to making our patients a priority by providing immediate access and extended hours that are convenient for our patients" said Monica Schlichter, Musculoskeletal Service Line Director for Reid Health. "We don't want you to have to wait. If you are in pain, we want to take care of you today."
Care will be provided by Dorothy Lollathin, P.A., who has more than 15 years of orthopedics experience.
"I won't say I've seen it all, but I've seen a lot," she said. "I am blessed and honored for the opportunity to add my skills and knowledge to Reid's outstanding orthopedic team."

The walk-in service is perfect for student-athletes who might be injured during a practice or competition, someone who falls and hurts themselves, or someone suffering from pain in joints according to Schlichter.
"Instead of going to the regular Urgent Care or the Emergency Department and having to be referred to the Reid Orthopedic Center, patients will be able to use this service instead," she said. "It's one less stop for the patient."
Anyone with questions about the new walk-in service can call Reid Orthopedic Center at (765) 962-4444.
