Urgent Care Vs. Emergency Room
An urgent care center isn’t the same thing as an emergency room -- although both can provide immediate medical attention when you need it most, there are a few important differences between the hospital emergency room and an urgent care clinic.
Not all urgent care clinics are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and most urgent care centers aren’t equipped to handle major, life-threatening injuries. Because urgent care centers are similar to outpatient medical centers, they are independently-owned and operated.
Instead of rushing to receive immediate medical care and then waiting around for hours on end in the emergency room Portland residents know they can visit AFC Urgent Care when they need medical attention ASAP.
So, what exactly will you find when you come to AFC Urgent Care instead of an emergency room Portland? Here are just a few things:
No appointments are needed at our clinics, although you can certainly make one in advance if you’re looking to get a vaccine, flu shot, or STD exam.
Regarding emergency medical conditions, our staff is capable of handling minor illnesses and infections; sprains and minor fractures (usually considered to be no larger than a finger bone fracture), lab testing and screening, and minor trauma (burns, lacerations, dehydration, and respiratory treatment).
We only employ the best of the best, so as a patient you’ll encounter a staff of friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced doctors and nurses. Our offices are equipped to provide the same services as any other physician’s office.
Our clinics are in-network for the majority of Oregon insurers; you can find a complete list of our in-network insurers on the pricing and payment page. We ask that you pay your normal co-pay or co-insurance at the time of your visit if you have a healthcare plan.
AFC Urgent Care Portland also treats patients without insurance plans, and we provide a complete list of our services and fees before you agree to anything. Our self-pay plan is typically much more affordable than hospital emergency room fees.
We also provide prescriptions for non-chronic conditions, and our clinics have antibiotic dispensaries on-site for the convenience of our patients.
It’s not exactly under your control to decide when and where an illness or injury will strike -- but knowing where to find immediate medical care is easy with AFC Urgent Care. For treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, instead of visiting the emergency room Portland residents and visitors can stop by any of our AFC Urgent Care Portland clinics.
If you’re dealing with a pressing, non-life-threatening medical issue and go to an emergency room or hospital, 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.
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.
The main advantage of choosing AFC is our short wait times. 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.
