Common Treatments For Injuries
Cuts and gashes happen as a result of trauma to the skin. Depending on how bad the cut is, it may require stitches to aid in healing and minimize scarring. If you are unsure whether you need stitches or not, come in and see us at AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach. Our providers will do the following:
Clean your wounds
Measure the wound & check how deep the cut is
Provide stitches if needed
If we feel your cut is too large or life-threatening, we may refer you to the nearest ER for more complex treatment.
If you believe you have broken or fractured a bone or suffered a sprain, we have you covered! AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach has an X-ray machine on-site. We can do your X-rays, review them and analyze your injury to determine the type of care it may require. Treatment for sprains and fractures may include bandages, soft casts, hard casts, or ice and rest.
Severe burns need to be treated at the emergency room, but AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach can help treat more minor burns. Individuals with first-degree and small second-degree burns can choose urgent care instead of the emergency room, allowing them to be seen faster. Second-degree burns affect both the inner and outer layers of the skin and cause blistering. Doctors at urgent care centers may use an antibiotic cream or clean the burn to prevent infection.
Did you know we have a complex in-house lab for our testing services? This means faster more accurate results! This also reduces costs and fees for you. At AFC Urgent Care Princess Anne Virginia Beach our mission is to provide the best healthcare possible in a kind and caring environment, in an economical manner, while respecting the rights of all of our patients, at times and locations convenient to the patient.
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.
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 – 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.
