The month of May marks Urgent Care Center Awareness Month and we are letting our local community know that urgent care centers are here to make their lives easier and healthier. When you’re seeking attention for a medical situation that requires immediate attention, but is non-life threatening, Urgent Care centers are a great alternative to your primary care physician or local emergency room.
While your primary care physician is your first line choice for keeping you healthy and treating your long term healthcare needs, they are not always available at the time a sudden illness or injury occurs and your local emergency room could be a costly and time consuming experience.
Urgent care centers provide a full range of high quality health care services for immediate but non-emergency situations such as strains and sprains, broken bones, flu, colds, and other common illnesses, as well as DOT physicals, and travel vaccinations. They are equipped to handle episodic illnesses and injuries requiring X-rays, intravenous fluids and on-site lab tests. Most urgent care centers are conveniently open 7 days a week, and offer short wait times with services covered by most insurance providers.
Whether you’re facing a non-life threatening injury or illness, about to embark on an overseas journey, or you’re trying to get your commercial driver’s license (DOT), urgent care centers like AFC Urgent Care West Orange can be your go-to center for your urgent medical needs.
Our experienced physicians and lab technicians are here for your medical needs seven days a week. We provide on-site lab testing and digital x-rays to help diagnose and treat the cause of your medical concerns and get you on the road to a speedy recovery.
For more information about the services we provide, please call to speak with one of our medical professionals at 973-669-5900. If you are facing a life-threatening injury or illness, please do not hesitate to dial 911 and visit your local emergency room.
