For years, people had to visit an emergency room when a visit to their primary physician wasn’t possible or convenient. Emergency rooms are notorious for long wait times, expensive bills, and mediocre care. Fortunately, urgent cares now treat many illnesses and injuries that were once only treatable at the ER. At AFC Urgent Care, we want to reduce your wait time while maximizing your experience from the moment you arrive until you feel back to normal. The average ER visit costs $1,300 while a basic urgent care visit costs $100. When you visit AFC Urgent Care, you don’t have to compromise your expectations for exceptional care or break the bank to receive the medical attention you need. Visit our walk-in clinic 7 days a week with no appointment necessary, and we will help you feel better in no time.
Why should I choose AFC Urgent Care at Monroe Road?
As one of the fastest growing cities in the US, more than 41,000 people move to the Charlotte metropolitan area each year. With rapid population growth, it is essential to keep established and new residents healthy. At AFC Urgent Care, we treat common illnesses such allergic reactions, strep throat, flu, and more. Contagious illnesses are easy to contract in densely populated areas, and our team is here to help you treat those illnesses when they occur. Whether you’re playing at Randolph Park in Grier Heights, perusing the Common Market in Oakhurst, or shopping at Cotswold Village, it’s never convenient to start feeling sick, especially while you’re in public. AFC Urgent Care is in the center of Monroe Road, making a convenient trip for the surrounding neighborhoods, so you don’t have to go far to find treatment.
With so many people in the area, many public places are high transmission zones for contagious illnesses. Physicians urge you to thoroughly wash and sanitize your hands before and after being in a public facility to prevent spreading and catching germs. If you need to sneeze or cough, cover your mouth with your elbow. Remember to also avoid touching your face while you’re in public. Just a few healthy habits will do wonders to prevent catching and spreading contagious illnesses, helping the community stay healthy.
If you’re an employee or you have a student at Oakhurst STEAM Academy, AFC Urgent Care is just half a mile down the road, ready to help you when illness or injury occurs. We understand it’s easy to get sick while at school and how important it is to maintain a healthy classroom. Elementary students contract nearly 6 to 8 colds each school year and are at high risk for the flu. This occurs typically because children are in confined spaces for most of the day, 5 days a week, allowing germs to spread and linger where they spend most of their time.
Here are a few tips to help your children or students stay healthy throughout the year:
- Get the recommended amount of sleep
- Minimize stress
- Eat nutritious food
- Wash hands properly
Even when you maintain every healthy habit, sickness still occurs, and AFC Urgent Care is ready to help you get through it. Just 10 minutes from Downtown Charlotte, our walk-in clinic is conveniently located on Monroe Road, near several pharmacies, where residents of many communities can quickly reach us. Visit our walk-in clinic when you’re not feeling well so we can help you feel better as soon as possible.
