It is important to understand the difference between Urgent Care and the Emergency Room. Effectively using the correct medical treatment center can save you significant amounts of time, money and more importantly help save your life.

Urgent care is for conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate, serious threat to your health or life. In general, if your medical issue is life threatening call 911 or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an Urgent Care Center such as AFC Urgent Care is an excellent alternative.
