American Family Care Offers Comprehensive Medical Services Seven Days a Week

BRENTWOOD, Calif. – (October 18, 2023) – American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, primary care, and occupational medicine, continues its massive expansion with the opening of its latest AFC urgent care center in Brentwood, California. The new clinic aims to offer accessible and convenient medical care to the local families of the rapidly growing Bay Area community.

AFC Brentwood, a state-of-the-art healthcare facility, is located at 2455 Sand Creek in The Streets at Brentwood shopping center.

“In a rapidly growing community like Brentwood, where family and convenience are paramount, we recognized the need for accessible and high-quality healthcare,” says Derrick Shelton, independent owner and operator of AFC Brentwood, with his wife Beatrice. “With AFC Brentwood, we’re not just offering medical services; we’re providing peace of mind for families, knowing they can receive urgent care, primary care, even pediatric care without the long wait times.”

Brentwood is the second fastest-growing city in the Bay Area, experiencing a nearly 25% population growth from 2010 to 2020. With so many families moving to the area for more affordable living, Derrick and Beatrice are putting a focus on providing for families. With three young children of their own, they understand what it is like to come home from work to find out one or multiple children are sick.

“We live the challenges of family healthcare every day,” says Beatrice Shelton. “From the common cold to unexpected injuries, we understand the importance of having a go-to healthcare facility to get effective healthcare swiftly. At AFC Brentwood, our medical team is also made up of fellow parents, who will ensure that your child will receive the compassionate care they deserve, allowing you both to rest easy.”

AFC Brentwood is led by Dr. Poornima Goyal, MD, who brings more than a decade of primary care and veteran care experience to the clinic. Dr. Goyal and her team will offer a comprehensive suite of medical services that will save families time and money, like sports physicals, COVID-19, and flu testing.
