Urgent Care
Has Orthopedic Urgent Care

The staff at Forté was so welcoming from the beginning. They had a plan in place to help me progress between each appointment and helped me reach my goal of getting back to active living after spraining my ankle.

Stacy Royer, Ankle and Forté Fast Patient

My experience was incredible from the first moment I walked through the doors using the walk-in clinic. I had my initial evaluation, x-rays, physical therapy and surgery all under one roof — it's a one-stop shop.

Tim Griffin, Knee, Elbow and Shoulder Patient

I enjoy how the doctors and physical therapists work closely together with dancers. I wouldn't be where I am today without my care team at Forté.

Abigail Marten, Hip Patient and Company Artist at Indianapolis Ballet

For me, art is not a way of living. It's a way of life. I can't imagine going anywhere else but Forté. Dr. Lance Rettig did to my hands what I do to the drawing board. I'm so grateful.

Kevin Wilson, Hand Patient
