Since we are a walk-in center, you can be treated at AFC Urgent Care Center without making an appointment if you have a busy schedule or do not feel well enough to wait to see your Primary Care doctor. While both cares for common illnesses, urgent care is a better choice for non-life-threatening injuries that require X-rays or sutures. You should visit your Primary Care doctor if you have chronic health issues that require managed care, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or psychiatric disorders. At our Urgent Care Center, we work with your Primary Care doctor and will send your visit records to your doctor so they can follow up with you.
Patients are seen on a walk-in, first-come, first-served basis and are usually in and out within 1 Hour. Occasionally patients may experience longer than the typical wait time if multiple people walk-in at the same time. We make every effort to staff our clinics appropriately to keep wait times to a minimum
The cost of each vaccine is different. Please call for specific prices.
For insured patients, we collect your deductible and/or co-pay at the time of service and then bill your insurer. After your insurer sends us an EOB (explanation of benefits), AFC Urgent Care will bill you for any balance still due.
We have a standard discount for all our rates for patients without medical insurance. The total cost of your visit depends on the services you use at our walk-in urgent care clinic. Our center offers on-site lab testing, state-of-the-art digital X-Rays, and on-site prescription medication. The costs for these services are additional, but we will always explain the cost before proceeding with any procedure so you can decide whether to move forward.
Yes, please ask about our Travel Medical Program
Our fees are fixed, but the amount your insurance company covers depends on your specific plan. For insured patients, we collect your deductible and/or co-pay at the time of service. After your insurer processes your claim, if there is a balance due, we will bill you for the remaining balance.

We specialize in fast and effective physician care for most non-life threatening conditions such as illness or injury, as well as preventive care, travel medicine, and employer services. We bridge the gap between a primary care physician and the ER, providing extended hours, seven days a week, with CLIA-certified labs, digital x-ray, splints & braces, vaccines, prescriptions & some non-narcotic medications.
However, if you have a life-threatening condition or emergency, you should always call 911 and seek a hospital ER
If you are experiencing life-threatening conditions such as significant chest pain, shortness of breath, rectal bleeding, passing out (syncope), or extremely high fevers in the young or the elderly, these issues are best treated in an Emergency Room at your local hospital. Although board-certified physicians staff our offices, life-threatening emergencies often require advanced levels of care available only at a hospital.+
