Food Poisoning Symptom Relief in New Mexico

Foodborne illness, commonly referred to as food poisoning, is a condition that occurs when contaminated food has been consumed. Food poisoning can cause uncomfortable and painful symptoms that typically pass within 12 to 48 hours. If you have a weakened immune system, an underlying health condition, or the germ you consumed requires antibiotic treatment, you should seek professional medical attention at AFC.

AFC locations in New Mexico can treat food poisoning illness on a walk-in basis. Depending on how severe your symptoms are, our medical providers may replace lost fluids or prescribe antibiotics so you can start feeling better fast. Simply visit the walk-in clinic or book an appointment online.
