We think you’re located in zip code 19083. Not Right?
You twist your ankle outside. You slice your finger while cutting a bagel. You were fine yesterday but you spent the entire night vomiting, and you can’t get out of bed. Your child has come down with a high fever. Wouldn’t it be great if any of these previous ailments and injuries would make an appointment with you so you could properly plan out your day? Unfortunately, that never happens. When these medical issues do occur you need immediate care, and often your primary care doctor will not have an appointment readily available for you.
That means an expensive trip to the emergency room to stitch up a cut, wrap a sore ankle, or get immediate medical attention for a child. The only thing worse than the hours spent in an emergency room is the medical bill that will arrive quickly in your mailbox. An emergency room is a critical, life-saving resource in the Havertown area. However, they are best utilized if their resources are used when someone has a life-threatening medical emergency.
A hospital emergency room is required by law to provide medical attention to all patients, even if they have no way to pay for that care. ER’s are placed under tremendous financial strain when patients do not have the money to pay for their medical care. These out of pocket costs are often shifted to other patients in the emergency room so they can continue to function. According to a recent study, the average cost of the ten most frequent trips to an emergency room is about $1,200. Nearly $18 billion could be saved every year if people utilized urgent care centers for nonlife-threatening problems, instead of taking a trip to the emergency room.
Nearly three-fourths of the population cannot see their primary care doctors in the evening or on the weekends. When unavailable, many assume their only other choice is the ER or waiting a few days until their doctors are unavailable. Waiting isn’t practical if you need stitches, an x-ray, or if you’ve come down with the flu. AFC Urgent Care Havertown helps bridge that gap between your regular doctor and the emergency room.
When to utilize AFC Urgent Care Havertown instead of an ER:

If you’re dealing with a pressing, non-life-threatening medical issue and don’t want to see a doctor, urgent care could be for you. AFC walk-in clinics are able to see patients dealing with allergic reactions, broken bones, colds and flus, and much more.
Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
The main advantage of choosing AFC is our short wait times – often under 15 minutes. The total length of your visit will depend on what you’re being seen for, but many patients can be in and out of our clinics in around 30 minutes.
