ER Alternative at AFC Urgent Care Lyndhurst

Emergency Room Alternative in Lyndhurst, NJ

Going to the emergency room can be quite the hassle, from the long waiting times to the uncomfortable environment; it can end up being an all-day affair. Each year the amount of ER patient visits increases by nearly 30% causing many of our nation's emergency rooms to be overbooked. 1 in 4 visits to the ER are known as non-life-threatening and can easily be diagnosed and treated at AFC Urgent Care Lyndhurst.

Unlike the ER, the wait time at AFC Urgent Care Lyndhurst is very short, we don't require an appointment, and walk-ins are always welcome.

Non-Emergency Conditions Treated near Kearny, NJ

It’s important to understand the differences between urgent medical care and emergency medical care. There are some conditions that can only be treated in the emergency room due to the capabilities they have. That being said, many urgent conditions can be treated at AFC Lyndhurst.

Some common urgent medical conditions that can be treated in an urgent care include:

  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Minor injuries, including cuts, bruises, and sprains
  • Moderate injuries including burns (less than 3 inches), breaks, and cuts requiring stitches
  • Insect bites, rashes, and skin infections
  • Eye or ear injuries or infections
  • Asthma, allergies, or breathing treatments

If a condition feels like an emergency, it is best to visit the emergency room. If a person loses consciousness, even for just a minute, it’s best to visit the ER.
