American Family Care
Live Life, Uninterrupted
About AFC Urgent Care Bridgeport Starting with a single location in 1982, American Family Care (AFC) has pioneered the concept of non-emergency room urgent care. With its 2013 acquisition of the Doctors Express franchise, AFC has become the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational medicine, with more than 160 clinics and 500 in-network physicians caring for 2 million patients a year. Ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S., AFC’s stated mission is to provide the best healthcare possible, in a kind and caring environment, while respecting the rights of all patients, in an economical manner, at times and locations convenient to the patient. AFC Urgent Care in Bridgeport opened March 2014 and is the first center established by Dr. Steven Heffer, Owner/Medical Director. We have a comfortable lounge to wait in, a very friendly and professional staff and state of the art equipment (including digital x-ray and a full lab) to take care of all your urgent care needs. In December of 2016, our second Bridgeport center opened up, conveniently located at 4200 Main Street. We look forward to continuing to expand on the AFC Urgent Care brand.
Our Mission Our mission was born out of a desire to change the way urgent health care is delivered in the United States. We believe that urgent care should be provided by highly trained physicians, supported by a well-qualified staff, in comfortable yet modern facilities.
Our Reputation AFC Urgent Care is known for advanced patient care provided by expert board certified physicians and staff, particularly in the areas of urgent care and occupational medicine. Our ability to provide state-of-the-art treatment stems from our commitment to team work, collaboration and first class patient care. The physicians and staff at AFC Urgent Care are committed to comprehensive, compassionate and personal care of all patients without the extensive wait times and cost experienced by so many visiting hospital emergency departments.
Urgent care services are focused on convenience, affordable services, and immediate responses to pressing medical issues.
Whether your'e worried you have a broken bone or pneumonia, we have the technology needed for on-site diagnostic tests, resulting in a more direct treatment plan.
An AFC center is more than an urgent care clinic. It’s an urgent care with a lab. You can have your results in minutes or a couple of days, depending on the test.
Annual physicals involve comprehensive medical evaluations and lab tests. A wellness exam is more of a routine check of blood pressure, weight, or any other issues that might concern you.

If you cannot wait until your primary care physician has time for an appointment, our clinics are here to provide the immediate medical care you need at a fraction of the cost you will encounter at the emergency room.
We strive to make the healthcare experience as convenient and accessible as possible, which is why our clinics are open during the evening hours and on weekends.
