our Clearwater, FL walk-in urgent care centerNow that it looks like flu season is over (keep your fingers crossed!), we’re greeted by the arrival of spring allergies along with all of the medical conditions that plague us each spring and summer. This makes now an excellent time to educate Americans about the perks of visiting an urgent care center. Every year, May is National Urgent Care Awaress Month, which aims to spread awareness concerning urgent care and how it differs from the ER and the primary care physician’s office.

Although both the emergency room and primary doctor’s office play a vital role in the Clearwater & Dunedin community, urgent care serves as a more convenient destination for walk-in medical services.

Why is Urgent Care Important

While the Emergency Room can accept patients on a walk-in basis, urgent care centers like AFC Urgent Care Clearwater can accommodate patients much quicker. If you or a family member visits the ER for a non-life-threatening medical condition, you will likely spend hours before seeing a doctor. At AFC Urgent Care Clearwater, we typically get patients in-and-out the door in under an hour, all the while providing them with top notch level care.

Because we accept most insurances, we’re able to deliver our patients with the most cost-effective medical experience in Clearwater, FL. Unlike the ER, patients can enjoy paying their primary care co-pay at AFC Urgent Care Clearwater, as opposed to the pricey ER co-pay they would otherwise need to pay.

We treat the following medical conditions:

  • Joint Pain, Fractures, Sprains & Strains
  • Respiratory Conditions, Flu & Colds
  • Travel Vaccines
  • Spring & Seasonal Allergies
  • Workers’ Compensation
