Affordable Urgent Care Cost vs. Emergency Room

Millions of Americans are visiting the Emergency Room each year and studies have shown that over one third of these patients are not in true need of emergent care and could be treated at an urgent care center.  Urgent care centers are an excellent choice for illnesses and injuries that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate, serious threat to your health or life.

Visiting an urgent care center for non-emergent care will save you time and money. 

A young woman recently shared her emergency room bill with us after visiting the emergency room for a wrist injury.  Unfortunately, she paid $901 for her visit due to the fact that she had a health plan with a $2,000 deductible that had not yet been met.  Had she come to AFC Braintree, she would have received exactly the same care by a board-certified physician for just $179.  And not to mention, she would have been in and out in under an hour vs. the four hours she spent needlessly at the ER.
