Does AFC Urgent Care do any allergy tests?
An allergic reaction can happen because of any type of trigger. These triggers, however, fall into four different categories: animal dander, dust mites, mold and mildew, and pollen. If you experienced any of the above mentioned symptoms, you can find out about the trigger using our allergy test. It is a painless skin test that provides answers in just 15 minutes.
Testing positive in the skin test allows you to learn about your condition and get the allergy treatment you need. AFC Urgent Care offers sublingual immunotherapy to effectively reduce your sensitivity to allergens. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration and safe to take with your allergy medications.
How much do specific vaccines cost?
The cost of each vaccine is different. You will be contacted by our medical team after you submit the Travel Vaccination Questionnaire, and they will let you know the cost of each vaccine.
How much does a typical visit cost?
For insured patients, it depends on your insurance plan. We collect any deductible or co-pay you may have at the time of service and then bill your insurer for you.
For patients without insurance, our self-pay rates are always discounted to be affordable. An illness or injury related office visit with one of our board certified doctors is $125. Our staff will discuss any other recommended treatment or services, (such as an x-ray or a lab test) with you.
Do I have to make an appointment?
No, you can walk-in during our normal business hours and be seen by a physician without a long wait.
How much will the visit cost if I have no insurance?
For patients without insurance, our self-pay rates are always discounted to be affordable. An illness or injury related office visit with one of our board certified doctors is $125.
We also offer on-site lab testing, state of the art digital X-Rays and on-site prescription medication. The costs for these services are additional, but we will always explain the cost before proceeding with any procedure so you can decide to move forward or not.
I am going abroad, do you offer travel immunizations?
Yes, please about our Travel Medical Program
If I have insurance, will I get a bill after my visit?
Our fees are fixed, but the amount that your insurance company covers depends on your specific plan, coverage and deductible. After your insurer produces an EOB (explanation of benefits), if there is a balance due, we will bill you for the remaining balance.
What are various allergy symptoms and triggers?
There are different ways to tell if you are having an allergic reaction. Sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, and sinus headaches are the most common. Asthma and skin rashes also happen in some cases. Ear infection, eye irritation, and muscle or joint pain are more serious. These prompt you to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
What is the difference between Urgent Care and Emergency Room?
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.
What Type of Medical Treatment do you Provide?
We specialize in fast and effective physician care, for most non-life threatening conditions due illness or injury, as well as preventive care, travel medicine, allergy testing, and employers services. We bridge the gap between a primary care physician and the ER, providing extended hours, seven days a week, with CLIA certified labs, digital x-ray, splints & braces, vaccines, prescriptions & some non-narcotic medications.
However, if you have a life-threatening condition or emergency, you should always call 911 and seek a hospital ER.
