Winter can be rough when it comes to cold and flu, making it extremely important for you and your family to stay healthy.

When you can’t get an appointment with your primary care doctor, and don’t want to wait hours in the emergency room (ER) for something as minor as the flu or stitches, come to AFC Urgent Care. AFC is open 7 days a week, with less wait times and cost than the ER.

urgent careAFC Urgent Care is an advanced, state-of-the art walk-in clinic focused on non-life threatening illness and injuries. With locations in Bridgeport, Fairfield, Norwalk and Shelton, the AFC centers treat sneezes to sprains, and everything in between. No appointment is necessary, and an X-ray and state accredited laboratory are available on site.

On average, patients at AFC are typically in and out in about an hour, with the total cost significantly less than the ER. According to Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance, you can “save up to $180” by utilizing an urgent care center vs. the ER. That is “enough to buy 52 lattes from your corner coffee shop.”

Below are some of the benefits when you use AFC Urgent Care:

  • Low wait times, in-and-out fast!
  • A quarter of the cost than the ER/hospital affiliated walk in’s
