Urgent Care Vs ER

Urgent Care Vs. ER in Phoenixville, PA

It is important to understand the difference between Urgent Care and the Emergency Room. Effectively using the correct medical treatment center can save you significant amounts of time, and money and, more importantly, help save your life.

Urgent care is for conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate, serious threat to your health or life. In general, if your medical issue is life-threatening, call 911 or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an Urgent Care Center such as AFC Urgent Care is an excellent alternative.

Some examples of conditions that can be treated at AFC Urgent Care Center include the following:

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • When should I choose urgent care?

    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.

  • Do I need insurance to visit AFC?

    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.

  • How long will my visit take?

    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.
