At American Family Care, we deeply value the partnership we have with our local emergency departments (EDs), who play a crucial role in caring for our patients. Recognizing the significant demands they face in providing critical care and serving as our community’s safety net, we strive to complement their efforts with family urgent care clinics

In today’s fast-paced world, you need a healthcare solution that fits your busy schedule and provides the personalized attention you deserve. Our urgent care clinics are designed to do just that, offering treatment for your non-emergency conditions.

What Is a Family Urgent Care Clinic?

Urgent care centers are healthcare facilities that offer various medical services to individuals and families. These clinics provide prompt, professional, quality care for minor illnesses or injuries. 

Unlike primary care medical centers, urgent care centers are often open during extended hours on evenings and weekends, making it easier to access medical care without waiting for an appointment that can take months to make.

Most clinics offer various services, including physical examinations and vaccinations, laboratory testing, radiology services, and treating minor illnesses such as colds and flu. Some clinics are equipped to perform minor surgical procedures such as suturing lacerations or draining abscesses. They may also provide minor emergency care, such as treating fractures and sprains. 

Some clinics offer various primary care services, such as wellness visits, health screenings, and disease management programs. The staff at urgent care centers are typically highly trained professionals with experience dealing with both standard and complex medical conditions. 

Patients who visit these clinics can expect quality medical care in a prompt, courteous, and caring environment.
