New Bedford Urgent Care at AFC Urgent Care
AFC vs. the E.R.
If you’re sick or hurt and require urgent care, you could visit your local emergency room, but the average wait time is around 40 minutes – not to mention the cost. AFC's walk-in clinics are a better option. We're able to see patients quickly and provide a range of services that rivals your local hospital – including X-rays and lab tests. As a result, we're able to treat countless injuries and illnesses right in every AFC clinic. If you need medical care right away and are dealing with a non-life-threatening problem, there's no comparison.
Your local AFC clinic is a fast and effective way to get the urgent care you need.
We Keep Things In-house
One of the reasons we're able to offer such speedy service is that we have in-house labs at many locations. As a result, we can get test results faster – a major benefit if you're feeling sick. Along these lines, we're also able to cut costs by cutting out the middlemen. The end result is that you receive the proper treatment faster, so you can return home and start feeling better.
Non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses need immediate care, too. We cover:
Animal or insect bites/stings (minor)
Back & neck pain
Blister, cyst & abscess
Broken bones & fractures
Bronchitis, chest colds & respiratory infection
Cough & Cold
COVID-19 Antibody Testing
Cuts & lacerations
Foreign body removal (e.g. ears, nose, eyes, foot)
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.
