Have you or a loved one suffered a minor accident? “Walking it off" may not be the best medical advice. In fact, delaying treatment may aggravate a potential injury making it costlier to treat and extending your recovery time. More than likely, your primary care doctor isn’t going to have a same day appointment available for a quick x-ray of the injured area, assuming they have that equipment in the first place. Does that mean a trip to an expensive, overcrowded emergency room? It doesn’t have to! Visit the board-certified physicians at AFC Urgent Care Pinellas Park today and access our onsite digital x-ray, with no appointment ever needed. Get the answers you need without spending an entire day in the ER.
Our digital x-ray is staffed by qualified x-ray technicians seven days a week. They can quickly take an image of your injury. Our doctors will look for breaks and can treat you for simple fractures, also known as a closed fracture. We’ll stabilize and immobilize the area allowing your bone to heal. If proper treatment isn’t applied, your bone will not heal correctly, leading to further medical complications. If you have suffered a compound fracture, where the bone has pierced the skin, please immediately visit an emergency room for treatment.
If an x-ray does not show a fracture but the area is still injured, you are likely suffering from a strain or sprain. These conditions occur when you overstretch or even tear a muscle or ligament. These painful injuries need medical attention, so they heal properly, and so you don’t keep re-injuring yourself. Sprains and strains are a bit more common than fractures and often occur when people play sports or workout. However, sprains and strains can happen at home while doing strenuous activities like gardening or even moving heavy things around in your basement. Come to our urgent care center today for immediate treatment.
Do you need a chest x-ray for a future doctor’s visit, immigration physical, or a specialist? Come to our center today and get a chest x-ray. Our board-certified physicians might request a chest x-ray to diagnose respiratory issues, such as pneumonia if you come to our center with a severe cough or other respiratory issue.
Our doctors will go over the images with you, and you’ll be sent home with a copy of the x-ray on a CD. We can, at your request, forward copies of these x-rays to your primary care doctor or specialist. Since all of our images are digital, it is very easy for us to securely send your x-rays to other medical professionals.

X-rays do use small amounts of radiation, but they’re generally safe for adults and children. That being said, there are some cases where they can be damaging – to developing babies, for instance. Your AFC provider will take your circumstances into account and answer your unique questions about safety.
Your local AFC team can help you answer that question when you contact them. If you’ve experienced a fall or other injury and are in pain, an X-ray could help determine the best course of treatment. They’re also used in a variety of other circumstances.
At AFC, we always strive to get you in and out as quickly as possible, and the X-ray itself should only take around 15 minutes
