If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident or slip and fall contact our Nationally Accredited Health Care Clinic today.
Life in Florida can be full of surprises. But sometimes those surprises are not the kind you would hope for. A sunny drive down A1A can turn into a rear-end car accident with serious injuries; a fun day at the South Beach could mean a slip and a twisted ankle, or a pickup game at Bayfront Park could cause you to pull a muscle. But here is a fact: Florida law gives you only 14 days post-accident to seek medical treatment if you wish to claim compensation.
So when the clock is ticking, make the Icon Medical Center the first stop after your auto accident. Each of our locations has a top team of experts – chiropractors, physical therapists, pain management specialists, orthopedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons – under one roof. You may walk into our clinic with pain, but you will walk out with relief and a customized treatment plan for complete recovery.
That’s why reputable personal injury attorneys across Miami-Dade and Broward County recommend us – we are the gold standard in injury care and management. We have clinic locations both in Hollywood as well as in Miami. When attorneys send their clients our way, they are sending them to a place that provides best-in-class, personalized care.
We understand the urgency of treatment in motor vehicle accidents and other injury cases. Whether you need a same-day appointment or walk in without calling ahead, just come on over. Our professional care teams are dedicated to treating you to the best of our ability and getting you back on your feet as soon as medically possible.
Icon Medical Centers is a specialized clinic that focuses on treating injuries resulting from a wide range of accidents, including:
Think of our Florida injury medical centers as the bridge between the immediate care you might get in a hospital emergency room and the long-term recovery process. Yes, we do treat the broken bones, cuts, bruises, or internal injuries you may have sustained, but we also provide comprehensive care that factors in all the emotional and financial consequences of being injured due to someone else’s negligence.
If you have a nagging pain in your back or neck due to a recent injury or a chronic issue, our licensed chiropractors will get to the root of the problem to ensure your spine functions properly. Injuries related to an accident can shift the bones in your spine out of their position which can result in pain, loss of mobility, and neurological problems.
This misalignment of the spine could happen because of physical trauma, accident injury, poor posture, a herniated disc, and age-related factors. But don’t worry, our chiropractic physicians can perform precise spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore nerve function.
We offer a range of services to heal patients with conditions that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. To help you regain function and alleviate any pain from your injuries, our licensed physical therapists will perform a combination of hands-on techniques like joint mobilizations, soft tissue massage, and stretching exercises.
The goal of our personalized treatment and physical therapy plans is to return you to your routine activities, like walking, climbing stairs, or lifting objects. Through a combination of techniques, you will also learn how to manage your auto injury pain without relying on pain medications.
Despite what most people think, a massage is not just about relaxation. With the right experts, it is a targeted approach to stimulate your body’s natural repair mechanisms so the damaged tissues can mend and you can recover faster. We use multiple massage therapy techniques – deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, sports massage – to directly address the source of your pain and improve your range of motion.
During your initial assessment, our trained massage therapists will evaluate how serious your injury is, how much pain you are in, and whether you have any related symptoms. Once we have determined the most suitable massage techniques for you, your sessions will begin with a focus on breaking down any scar tissue and increasing blood flow to the injured area. This will not only help you heal faster, but also prevent the risk of future injuries by making your muscles more flexible.
Some degree of pain is to be expected when you suffer from auto accident injuries, but when the pain persists or becomes so debilitating that you cannot function normally – that’s when you need the expertise of our pain management specialists. Starting with a thorough evaluation, we will map out a plan to tackle your pain and suffering. If you have chronic pain, we will determine what’s causing it; it could be inflammation or nerve damage.
This thorough assessment will help a chiropractor, doctor, or other qualified professionals create a multi-modal treatment and pain management plan that may include medications, therapeutic injections, or nerve blocks to get rid of the pain for good. If your injury has made your joints stiff or caused weakness in your muscles due to your body’s protective response to pain, you may also undergo targeted physical and rehabilitation therapies.
We understand how severely a physical trauma can affect you. The debilitating pain of the injuries, the post-traumatic stress, the loss of mobility, and the emotional anxiety of losing income as you are unable to work for an indefinite period.
So, while our medical team is focused on healing the tangible harm done to your body via medical procedures, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and other forms of rehabilitation, our patient advocates, and case managers coordinate with your attorney and handle all the legal aspects of your insurance claim and medical documentation.

“My family and I were pleased with Icon Medical Center Brickell. We not only got amazing attention and treatment but also help with our car. We noticed a flat tire as soon as we arrived and they happily helped us with everything since they knew we were from out of town. My kids loved Mirtha and everyone from the front desk. My masseuse Ernesto was amazing too. We recommend this place and if we lived in Miami would be our go to!”
“Amazing therapy center! From the entrance, welcoming you this amazing valet guy, to the treatment room with professional therapists smiling with an amazing sense of humor to the exit at check out. Very nice and relaxing place. Ask for Ernesto or Mar; they are massage therapists and will take good care of you with no rush giving you the correct amount of time you need in the treatment room. I strongly recommend this place. Give it a try, you won’t regret it. : )”
“After my car accident I was referred to them. Their facility is extremely neat and clean. The staff is very nice and very helpful. The most enjoyable part of this whole experience has been the Physical therapy. Not only did they help me with all of my back pain but it also felt like going to the spa twice a week. The whole experience was very relaxing. The doctors there are very knowledgeable on the back and muscle issues. Now that my treatment is at a complete I will definitely be going back on my own.”
“Ive been having back pain for weeks and everything I've tried at home wouldn't help ease the pain I've been having in my back. I was referred to the Icon Medical Centers by a friend of mine and must I say, my visit at the Icon Medical was a pleasant and much needed visit. I really appreciate how kind and attentive the staff members were and how comfortable and welcoming they made me feel. I was very pleased to receive the proper help I needed to alleviate my back pain which at the end of my visit I left content, happy and feeling back to my young and healthy self again. Thanks Icon Medical Centers! You guys are the absolute BEST! Dr Bush is an amazing Pain Doc that totally takes the time to see where the pain is coming from. I got a epidural injection, I think with a steroid and my pain is totally gone, it’s been 5 weeks, still no more pain. I went from 8 out of 10 pain down to a 0”
“I recently visited to have chiropractic treatment due to having back pains. The staff was amazing and I got a massage that was beyond amazing! I've been to a couple of places for treatment before but this was by far the best place I've visited yet. Highly recommended!”
“Dr reggiano and his staff are great! They’ve been helping me through an injury and they take my insurance!”
“This is one of the best clinic in Calle Ocho that treats patients like they were supposed to be treated, Human Beings, and not Numbers. First, the place is ULTRA CLEAN. Next, clients are treated as VIP as they provide a complimentary valet parking for each client. The classical music over the speaker is soothing. The staff at Icon Clinic is not only knowledgeable in their craft but they do have a “savoir-faire” like in the old days to make each patient feel comfortable and appreciated. They take time for each patient. They never rush me. They are connoisseurs in treating pain with their bare hands. Dr. P. is a heck of a doctor there along with the other therapists too. She gave me an adjustment and it was so powerful and successful and on point in reducing the pain level in my neck and back that when I went to lay in the heating room, I temporarily slept immediately and caught myself snoring. Thanks God I was by myself . This clinic earns 5 stars but deserves 10 stars if it was up to me!”
“I went here for chiropractic treatment for back pain. My experience was excellent. Very good attention from the moment you arrive, and have quality services. I will definitely go back:)”
“Due a severe back pain, I was recommended to get physical therapy and I couldn't find a better center than Icon. I went there a couple of weeks ago and was received with friendliness and professionalism. They had everything ready for me. The room for the massage was as a friend described it. Elegant, serene and super comfortable. My therapist took the time to know my case and explained to me the details of my massage, creating a kind of team connection. I didn't know that my back was that contracted until he started. I was really sore and he helped me enormously to release the tension. He took the time to go over the most affected points, working with different level of pressure and techniques. Also, he suggested what I can do to avoid such pain. I left Icon Medical Center like a new person and the best part is that I didn't feel the expected extra pain the day after. I have been recommended their services to my friends and the people who workout in my gym. Well deserved 5 stars.”
“I got into a car accident in Miami 3 weeks ago and I am treating at Icon Medical Centers cause my PCP couldn't take me cause he didn't take my car insurance. So I found this place online so I figured let me try it out because my back was killing me. Everyone in this place creates an enjoyable atmosphere. I have been going here for a couple weeks now and would recommend anyone to go for chiropractic or massage therapy. The doctors treatment plans are always honest and pressure free. The staff is always friendly and personable. I appreciate the experience and again advise anyone to visit their practice.”
“I couldn't be happier with my decision to come here. I was in a Car Accident in April and my Orthopedic doctor told me to go to physical therapy for my injuries so I went on google and found this place. I absolutely love it here. All the doctors are great and so caring, the chiropractor knows exactly what he's doing and makes me feel like a new person! The rest of the staff always makes me feel like family. They've not only helped me feel better after the injuries from my accident but I look forward to coming here twice a week. Being I work in Miami & live in Hollywood, they let me treat between both of their offices. I could not recommend this place more! Thank u icon team!!!”
“I went to Icon Medical center because I've been very stressed and tense lately. As soon as I walk in to the medical center, I was greeted at the desk with two very friendly ladies that made me feel comfortable and took care of me immediately. I received a full body massage from Alberto, who was very professional and diligent on making sure I was okay with how much pressure he was applying the entire time of my massage. They made sure that I had a great experience. I definitely recommend their services and will be revisiting soon!”
“I was injured in a bad Uber accident and had to receive treatment for my back, I was not only in severe pain but I became depressed. Icon Medical Centers began treating me and the professionalism and expertise that they all displayed gave me the assurance I need to be able to cope with the experience of being temporarily disabled. All the doctors here always are professional and show concern and empathy to all of there Patients needs. The Staff members are very professional and knowledgeable in their profession they always greet you with a Smile and those smiles really lifted my Day's. Keep up the great Work It's important to know if your injured that you are in good hands. Thank you Sincerely”
“Recovery from a traumatic car accident is never fun. But the staff at Icon Medical Center in Miami have made it as pleasant as possible. It’s a breath of fresh air to be treated with much kindness and care from the moment I walk in the door to the moment I exit. Thanks to them, my body has steadily been healing. I would highly recommend this place!”
“I had never been in a car accident and sure enough not too long after moving to Miami someone smashes into our car. We were in need of physical therapy so I did some research and decided to go to with Icon Medical. I am very happy with all of the services they provided. Their staff is incredibly kind and knowledgeable. Their location is conveniently located near the 95s and impeccably clean. Shelly, the front desk receptionist, is so sweet and helpful with any questions we ever had, scheduling appts, or just helping with my baby when he had to come with me to treatments. Throughout the duration of my treatment I had 2 therapists that both provided excellent care and really helped me recover from my injuries. Despite having the misfortune of being in a car accident Icon Medical Group was definitely the silver lining to my whole ordeal. Thanks guys!”
“I was pleasantly surprised at the luxurious treatment I received from the moment I pulled up. Located in a quaint little plaza right off the 95, I was greeted by a complimentary valet attendant. (A little worried about parking when as I drove there.) I walked in and was welcomed with just the right amount of attention from the super friendly staff. I did not wait long to be called to my room. With the perfect ambiance and thoroughly knowledgeable masseuse, I felt like I was floating on air the entire time. I specifically enjoyed the fact that the massage was personalized to my specific needs and stress level instead of a generic rub down. Great place. Taking my mom there in a few weeks!”
“Went to Dr. Rugianno for my back and he patched me up. Therapists are good and staff is caring.”
“This is an excellent clinic, All the doctors are wonderful and also the staff are wonderful as well. I had it a horrendous headache and muscles spams due to a slip & fall. Since I been coming to take my therapy and alignments I feel so much better!! This is what I expect when visiting a doctors office: Friendly staff, a clean and comfortable atmosphere, and most importantly a knowledgeable and professional doctors who instills trust. This is exactly what I found during my visit to Icon Medical Centers in Miami. After one visit with Dr Hatgis, I learned what was causing my pain and received treatment. I feel great. Thank you very much for caring so much for your patients <3”
“What a great overall experience! I was in a car accident and received whiplash and back pain. I chose Icon Medical Center because they have a neurosurgeon, orthopedic surgeon and a chiropractor; so no matter what type of injury I had, it could be taken care of in one place. The first visit and throughout my treatment their facilities were always clean, and the doctors were very thorough yet caring and always took their time with me. They have convenient hours, great parking and are prompt in seeing you at your time of appointment (I don't like to wait). The staff was always very professional and helpful, plus they have private rooms so when meeting with your therapist you could talk openly and privately. Its never fun dealing with an injury like I did but I must say Icon took great care of me and in a couple of months my pain was gone and my body was back to normal. I highly recommend Icon Medical Centers!”
“Every single employee at this office is amazing! From front desk to the Dr himself! Thank you guys soo much! ❤️❤️❤️ Mirtha is one of the best therapists I have ever had work on me. Her attention to detail and focus on the problem areas is wonderful. You get a spa treatment after a car accident, why would you go anywhere else, no one else in Miami can compare to this place. VIP treatment!!!”
“It is a beautiful facility and the staff is very nice and helpful at the clinic. They were able to work with my schedule and make sure to take their time into getting to know what my body exactly needs in order to be satisfied. During the massage, you are relaxed and enjoying comforting music. I recommend this clinic to anyone who is searching for a place that actually cares about their customers. Thank you!”
“I had a car accident 3 weeks ago and I've been treating here and All the doctors and therapists make you feel at home. They all actually make it enjoyable to come and get better. Ernesto, Alberto & Gretel are all amazing! Front desk girls are super nice also. Very clean office. Always smells good.”
“I can’t thank Icon Medical Centers enough for getting rid of my back pain. The staff was outstanding and friendly from top to bottom. I would fully recommend this clinic to anyone struggling with pain such as I was.”
“Best place for lymphatic massages. I had a Tummy Tuck and my Plastic Surgeon recommended Icon Medical Center for my massages. Ernesto is very professional and a great person. After 5 sessions, I started to feel like me again. My belly is flat and my scar is disappearing. The place is clean and neat. They just remodeled it and looks amazing. Friendly staff. You never have to wait to be seen. I want to go back for more massages because I feel it really works!! ;)”
“Simply amazing, quality service from the crew at Icon Medical. Upon walking in I was floored by the cleanliness and beauty of the facility, not to mention that the free valet was a huge plus. The front desk specialist, Chely, was very processional and kind; after every session she would ask about my experience and helped with any questions I had. As far as the front desk, each person there was very knowledgeable and were more than happy to answer any questions and/or change my appointments as needed. My therapist Ernesto went above and beyond my expectations. He helped me understand the healing process and ways in which to speed recovery. Ernesto tended to each of my sessions with professionalism and knowledge. I'm grateful to have been reffered to icon by my doctor and I highly recommend Icon Medical to any one seeking their services.”
“I am writing a review for Icon Medical as a patient as well as a plastic surgeon. I had torn my left calf muscle while running and had been treated at Icon Medical. The physical therapy treatments were conducted in the most professional and caring manner. The equipment was state of the art. I was seeing immediately and did not have to wait. The highly qualified physical therapists were nothing but amazing. The treatments enhanced my healing process and enabled me to return back to my physical activities faster then expected. I am a plastic surgeon that performs many procedures that benefit from post operative lymphatic drainage massages as well as Ultra Sound treatments. I have been sending my patients for those treatments at Icon Medical and have had nothing but amazing feed back from the patients about the care and the improved results the patients have been experiencing!!! I would recommend Icon Medical with the utmost highly regard not only as a patient but as a physician as well! Go see them you will be glad you did so!”
“Words that come to mind when describing Icon Medical Center are: professionalism, courtesy, cleanliness, efficiency. The staff is extremely accommodating and polite. Ernesto, my therapist (lymphatic massage) is knowledgeable, skillful and extremely personable. An outstanding experience over all.”
It might seem like a good idea to go to a regular hospital or your primary care physician to receive care for your injuries. After all, that’s what people have always done. However, over time, we recognized the need for more specialized care for accident victims.
For example, although some hospitals might have chiropractic care specialists on staff, at Icon Medical Centers, we have experienced chiropractors who specifically focus on addressing misaligned vertebrae or other spinal issues that are a common occurrence among victims of a vehicle collision.
In addition to providing extensive patient care, including osteopathic treatment, for injuries and focusing on your well-being, we also help with the legal aspect of the accident. Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) laws dictate that if you are in an accident, your insurance will help pay for your medical bills, no matter who was at fault – but only if you get medical treatment within 14 days of the accident.
So, on one hand, you need to get treated quickly, but on the other hand, your accident may lead to a legal case if you decide to sue the other party for damages. You may need medical records to show how bad your injuries are.
This is where we come in. Once you walk in, you get the healthcare you need right away – no appointments necessary – and also get assistance with all the paperwork for your insurance and legal matters. By documenting your injuries and working with your attorney, our team, including chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, orthopedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons, plays an important role in making sure you are fairly compensated for your injuries.

At Icon Medical Centers, we are specialized in treating a wide range of accident-related injuries. If you or someone you know has been involved in a car accident, slip and fall, bicycle accident or pedestrian accident, it is important to be evaluated by an accident doctor for any injuries that may have been sustained in the accident.
Pain resulting from a car accident, slip and fall or pedestrian accident injuries is not always immediately apparent. Days or even weeks can go by after the accident before symptoms begin to surface. It is for this reason that it is critical to seek medical attention and evaluation as soon as possible after a car accident or slip and fall.
Common examples of injuries our compassionate staff typically treat at our sports injury clinics in Miami and Hollywood locations are:
The Florida No-Fault Motor Vehicle Law allows 14 days after a car accident to seek medical treatment from either a hospital facility, emergency transport, accident doctor, doctor of osteopathy, chiropractor or a dentist to be considered for medical benefits.
Regardless of the severity of the accident, we strongly recommend that all our patients seek medical attention at one of our accident clinic locations as quickly as possible to be evaluated for any emergency injuries that may have been sustained.
Most patients are surprised to learn that lawyers and chiropractors frequently work together. At Icon Medical Centers, our accident clinic staff is highly experienced and knowledgeable with working together with your lawyer to handle your insurance claim.
Our Miami and Hollywood accident clinic is dedicated to providing superior service and medical care to make each patient’s recovery as smooth as possible. Our patients can depend on us to work persistently with their attorney while we get them back on the road to wellness.
Icon Medical Centers is proud to have established professional relationships with several accident attorneys throughout South Florida over the years. If you have been injured in an accident, need medical treatment, and do not have a lawyer, we can recommend reputable trial attorneys who can guide you through the legal matters of your accident.
While Icon Medical Centers accepts a wide variety of insurances, our patients may also pay out of pocket for the services offered at our personal injury clinics. Our accident clinics are also extensively experienced in working with third-party payers, including lawyers and motor vehicle insurance companies.
