Urgent Care Vs. ER

When sick or injured, your top priority is to get better fast. Unfortunately,  emergency rooms (ER) can make this simple goal quite the hassle with their long waits, uncomfortable environments, and high costs. Luckily there is a fast and affordable alternative available in your local area. 1 in 4 visits to the ER are known as non-life threatening and can easily be diagnosed and treated here at AFC Urgent Care.
