Treatment

AFC Urgent Care is set up to treat patients of all ages (from six months and above) who need to be seen quickly for non-life threatening illnesses. You do not need an appointment and can just walk in, 7 days a week!

We provide most services that are available at your primary care or the ER, but without the appointments, long wait times or high copays.

We treat an entire range of every day illnesses and injuries, such as coughs, colds, flus, UTI (urinary tract infections), fractures & sprains, ear infections, rashes, headaches and more. We conduct STD testing.
We conduct sports physicals, X-rays, immunizations, and more advanced DOT physicals.

We also have immunizations and conduct minor surgical procedures such as abscess drainage, laceration repair and stitches.

Please refer to our home page for a comprehensive list of what we treat.

AFC Urgent Care is an Emergency Room alternative for non-life threatening illness or injury or when you are unable to see your primary care physician. Our wait times are a lot lower and the insurance co-pays are a fraction of most ER copays. Most of our providers have worked in the ER for many years.

We call every patient within 48 hours of their initial visit. We also follow-up with your PCP to make sure you get the care you need. In certain circumstances, we also request that you return to us for follow-up visits.

At AFC Urgent Care, we’re big fans of PCPs- these guys do a sterling job! However, they are often incredibly busy, and sometimes you just can’t wait days or weeks to see them. At AFC Urgent Care, we treat you on your schedule. And we share your records with your PCP afterwards so they can continue to give you great care.
