Looking for Fast and Affordable Healthcare options? Try Urgent Care instead of Minute Clinics

 

A number of pharmacies and superstores across the country now offer walk-in “minute clinics" to their visitors, such as CVS’s Minute Clinic. Between Emergency Rooms, Minute Clinics, Primary Care Centers, and Urgent Care Centers, it’s easy to confuse the difference between these various medical care destinations. At AFC Urgent Care Beverly, we’ve striven to offer the most comprehensive and highest quality medical services since day one. Better than most minute clinics in our area!

What’s the Difference Between an Urgent Care Center and a “Minute" Clinic?

With these “minute clinics", they emphasize their ability to accommodate patients on a walk-in basis. However, they are generally staffed with only one provider (often only a nurse practitioner), who lacks any support staff, and who can only provide a minor list of medical services. There is no onsite lab or x-ray.

Meanwhile, here at AFC Urgent Care Beverly, we have board-certified physicians on staff and offer a wide number of services that many believe can only be provided by the emergency room. In addition, we can accommodate you on a walk-in basis without prior appointments so you can choose to see a doctor at a time that is convenient for you. Below is a breakdown of the differences between a minute clinic and our urgent care center.

Minute Clinic

  • Few Lab Testing Services (generally limited to blood pressure checks)
  • Offer Only Minor Medical Services (Flu Shots, Strep Tests, etc.)
  • Primarily Do NOT Have On-Site Lab (need to outsource lab samples for diagnostics and testing)
  • Cannot conduct any X-Rays or perform wound and laceration repairs
  • Limited to 2-3 patients per hour
  • Closed during lunch hour and closed in the evenings

Our Urgent Care Center

So next time you’re considering a visit to your local minute clinic, consider AFC Urgent Care Beverly for your healthcare needs. We’re located at 50 Dodge Street in Beverly MA (steps away from Walgreens and CVS) and are just a short drive away from Peabody, Salem, and Danvers.

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.
