The pandemic changed many industries and processes over the last few years. The perseverance and ingenuity of our community allowed us to continue serving our patients even in a world of uncertainty!
Now that the pandemic’s emergency status will end in May, certain processes will go back to normal and the healthcare industry will see some changes again. Included in that list of changes will be some aspects of telemedicine.
We are happy to share that an in-person visit to AFC Urgent Care Chattanooga is not changing and will still continue to provide quality care to our great community. Read on to learn why an in-person visit will always be a good choice for you.
What Are the Positives of an In-Person Visit?
Patient care is at the very center of what we do. From our front desk crew to our medical providers, all of us are dedicated to providing you with the best experience possible. While you are in our care, we work to develop a personal relationship with you and we are genuinely invested in helping you feel better. In fact, many of our team members actually live in the Chattanooga area as well!
Having a local smiling face as we work to help you feel better can be more beneficial than a conversation through a screen. In addition, an in-person visit allows us to physically see and evaluate your injury or illness. By having a thorough examination, we are able to assess all areas of concern and maybe even catch an underlying issue or symptom you hadn’t noticed on your own.
The Benefits of an AFC Visit
- Access to testing like bloodwork or an X-ray
- Quality patient/provider relationships
- Accurate and comprehensive diagnosis
- Personal touch and genuine compassion
Will an In-Person Visit Help Me Feel Better Faster?
Another benefit of an in-person visit is that we can order further testing if needed. Not all conditions and diagnoses are obvious right away, so having resources like X-rays, blood work and rapid tests allows us a more in-depth look into your condition. This can allow us a more comprehensive and accurate diagnosis!
If we can get to the root of what is causing you pain or discomfort, we can help you feel better faster. When you don’t feel well, come to AFC! We are open seven days a week and we will work hard to help you overcome your injury or illness, all with smiles on our faces.
- Thorough, patient-centered visits
- Lab services
- Rapid testing for flu, COVID-19, strep throat and some STDs
