Many healthcare consumers and patients may have started to see walk-in clinics sprouting up in places like grocery stores, pharmacies, and similar retail locations.
These clinics, commonly referred to as “Minute Clinics," are aimed to provide fast healthcare services. However, these clinics usually don’t have the capabilities to create both high-quality and convenient healthcare services for patients. In addition, many patients confuse these clinics with urgent care centers.
At AFC Bedford, we provide high-quality healthcare services that are designed to fit your schedule. Unlike a Minute Clinic, our urgent care center is staffed with board-certified providers to provide extensive healthcare services that are commonly associated with emergency care. Here are the main differences between an urgent care center and a Minute Clinic:

If you’re dealing with a pressing, non-life-threatening medical issue and don’t want to see a doctor, urgent care could be for you. AFC walk-in clinics are able to see patients dealing with allergic reactions, broken bones, colds and flus, and much more.
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.
The main advantage of choosing AFC is our short wait times – often under 15 minutes. The total length of your visit will depend on what you’re being seen for, but many patients can be in and out of our clinics in around 30 minutes.
