exam roomOver the last 20 years, emergency room visits have increased roughly 30% nationwide, leading to longer wait times; particularly for patients with lower acuity illnesses or injuries. It is estimated that approximately 27% of all ER visits nationwide (31.6 million annual visits) are non-life threatening; which means that those patients can readily be treated in an urgent care setting such as our AFC Urgent Care Center in South Plainfield NJ.

We are an alternative venue of care to the ER for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries. At AFC Urgent Care you can walk-in and be seen with minimal wait times in a comfortable office environment and be treated by board-certified physicians at a fraction of the cost of an ER visit. Since we accept most major health insurance plans, your out-of-pocket expense is typically your co-pay for a specialist office visit as opposed to the much higher co-pay associated with a visit to the ER. For those patients without health insurance, you can be seen and treated for a fraction of the cost you would otherwise have to pay following a lengthy wait in the ER.
