Young New Jersey Entrepreneur Opening State-of-The-Art Healthcare Facility in The Heart of Haledon

American Family Care Will Serve Patients Seven Days a Week


Haledon, NJ – (December 19, 2022) – American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of accessible primary care, urgent care, and occupational medicine, continues its massive expansion with the opening of its latest AFC urgent care center in Haledon — conveniently located to serve patients in Patterson, Wayne, as well as students attending William Patterson University.


AFC Haledon, a state-of-the-art healthcare facility, is located at 1 W. Haledon Avenue, at the former site of Big Jim’s Pizza.


“It’s amazing to see how we’ve turned a once popular restaurant into a medical center that is equipped with an x-ray room, lab testing center, trauma room, triage center, as well as multiple exam rooms,” explains Jeff Perchuk, independent owner and operator of AFC Haledon who is no stranger to the medical industry.   “Our entire team is looking forward to providing quality healthcare to the community and give the people who live and work nearby such easy access to highly skilled medical providers every day of the week. ”   Jeff has years of experience in pharmaceutical sales as well as a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Ramapo College of New Jersey.


AFC Haledon will provide a comprehensive suite of medical services that will save families time and money, like COVID-19 PCR testing that provides results in just thirty minutes.  The new center is staffed with skilled medical professionals who are deeply committed to providing outstanding medical care.

“Urgent care is a convenient, economical alternative to visiting a hospital emergency room. Our staff at AFC can treat everything from cuts, bruises, and fractures to colds, Covid-19, and flu,”  Dr. Hakim explains. “We look forward to becoming an integral part of the community and keeping everyone healthy.”
