The Right Care. Right Now.

Do you or a family member have a medical issue that needs to be taken care of right away? AFC has you covered. Our urgent care clinics do not require appointments or referrals. When you need our help, all you need to do is walk in and tell us what’s wrong.

AFC centers take urgent care to a new level by offering additional on-site services such as x-rays and labs, improved wait times, speedier visits, and treatment from a highly trained, medical staff. We are open extended hours of the day, including the early morning and late evening hours, 7 days a week. All of our centers accept most local and national insurance plans and offer very affordable self-pay options.

What are the Benefits of Urgent Care?

Urgent care services are focused on convenience, affordable services, and immediate responses to pressing medical issues. Oftentimes, your primary care physicians are not always available when you need them. Because we do not require appointments, you can come to us anytime you or someone in your family needs professional medical help for non-life-threatening issues. We can also work with your regular physician to make sure all of your medical records are up to date.

Is Urgent Care the Same as Emergency Care?

It is important to note that urgent care is not emergency care. While we can handle many medical situations, you should still call 911 in the event of a life-threatening emergency.

You should contact the nearest emergency room for serious issues such as:

  • Electrical shock
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Severe burns
  • Severe choking, including drowning
  • Severe/open fractures
  • Signs of stroke or heart attack
  • Unconsciousness

We’re Ready When You Are

AFC strives to make urgent care simple. No calls are necessary. Simply walk in, and a member of our team will be happy to assist you!

FAQs About Our Walk-In Clinics

QUESTION:  When should I choose urgent care?

A: 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.

QUESTION: Do I need insurance to visit AFC?

A: While our clinics do accept numerous insurance plans, it’s not a requirement to visit our centers – we offer competitive cash pay prices that could be lower than what you’d pay elsewhere.

QUESTION: How long will my visit take?

A: 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. 

How do I get the new COVID-19 vaccine?

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is the best, safest way to not get severely ill. Like all vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine teaches your body how to develop its own immunity to the virus that causes this illness. A COVID-19 vaccine usually requires two doses. The second shot happens 14 to 28 days after the first. It takes about three weeks after your last shot to develop immunity. Getting a COVID-19 vaccination will depend on availability and guidelines in your state. Contact us about getting a COVID-19 vaccination.
