Arlington ER Alternative at AFC Urgent Care

Emergency Room Alternative in Arlington, MA

There are several key differences between urgent care clinics and emergency rooms. AFC Urgent Care Arlington is an emergency room alternative to non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses, servicing patients from Arlington, Lexington, Belmont, Winchester, Cambridge, Somerville, Medford & Weston, MA.

While we consider ourselves an alternative to the emergency room, we cannot provide all the services an emergency room does. Likewise, an emergency room cannot offer all the conveniences we do.

Urgent Care Qualities:

  • Short wait times
  • Laid-back setting – low stress
  • Can be used for day-to-day services
    • Administer flu shots
    • Provide check-ups/Routine physicals
  • Affordable – lower copay
    • Offer inexpensive self-pay options (for uninsured persons)
  • Occupational health resource

Emergency Room Qualities

  • 24/7 service
  • Lengthy wait times
  • High stress atmosphere
  • Can perform surgery
  • Provide care for life-threatening injuries/illnesses
  • Used exclusively for sudden injuries/illnesses

Our walk-in urgent care center accepts most major health insurances, and we also provide low-cost care for self-pay patients.  We’re open seven days a week with convenient night and weekend hours, so you can visit us for those times when you can’t see your primary care physician, and you want to avoid the cost and wait time of the emergency room.

To take advantage of our services, walk in to our clinic anytime for prompt, affordable and top-quality care!  For more information about the services we provide, please call to speak with one of our medical professionals at 781-648-4572.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • Why choose AFC for Urgent Care?

    With state-of-the-art centers and a professional medical team, AFC provides on-site X-rays, labs, procedures, and more!

  • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
