We think you’re located in zip code 01845. Not Right?
Have you ever woken up with an unexplained illness and thought to yourself “If it gets worse, I’ll take tomorrow off and see if my doctor can fit me in"? Have you ever fallen and bruised your ankle and thought “If it feels this way after work, I’ll go to the emergency room"?
Unfortunately for many, this decision between missing work to see a family Provider or paying to visit a late-night Emergency Department can make a huge impact on everyday life – with both options forcing individuals to sacrifice time or money for health care services.
That’s why AFC Urgent Care in North Andover offers a full-service care from board certified doctors, nurses and x-ray technicians – during convenient hours that fit into the lifestyle of a full-time employee.
Our walk-in clinics accept appointments until 8:00 pm during the week, and even schedule appointments from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm on the weekend – so you never have to miss work to get the care you need – and because our centers accept most insurance plans, and charge less than typical Emergency Departments, you won’t have to pay an arm and a leg to feel better either.
AFC Urgent Care is a fully licensed walk-in clinic that offers high-quality healthcare services during convenient hours for working professionals and families who need non-emergency care that’s convenient and cost-effective.
What is a walk-in clinic?
A walk-in clinic is a non-ambulatory medical provider that provides immediate treatment for patients with acute illnesses. A walk-in clinic allows a patient to get care without the need for an appointment: a patient simply walks into the clinic to get care on a first come, first serve basis.
Unlike an ER, an urgent care center specializes in minor injury and illness treatment. For example, a walk-in clinic provides a great resource for patients that need to get care for seasonal illnesses, injury treatment, and other forms of preventive care.
Healthcare advantages of a walk-in clinic
A walk-in clinic provides many benefits for consumers that need to get care quickly at an affordable rate. For example, a walk-in clinic provides more affordable rates than an emergency room for similar services such as x-rays, lab testing, and blood tests. Additionally, the ability to walk in for care at any times allows even the busiest patients to recieve symptom treatment.
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.
