Why choose AFC Urgent Care in Ballantyne?

Fast and Convenient

We do not put our patients through long waits, which you may have experienced in an emergency room or at your primary care physician’s office. We have streamlined our process to make your visit quick and efficient, 7 days a week. If you feel under the weather, simply walk in and we will do our best to take care of you in a timely manner.

Cost-Effective

There are too many stories about people paying huge amounts of money for emergency room visits that could have been taken care of for a fraction of the cost. To give you an idea of the cost difference, basic urgent care visits average at roughly $100, while the average cost of an emergency room visit comes to about $1,300. Many injuries and illnesses can be treated at our walk-in clinics such as sprains, the common cold and flu, fevers, coughing, and other similar conditions. If you are facing something more serious such as a loss of consciousness, a heart attack, or uncontrollable bleeding, an emergency room is the right choice.

Quality Care

Our staff is made up of certified medical professionals and we always have an experienced doctor on-site. Our team is prepared to treat your injury or illness with high-quality care. It is our goal to make sure our patients leave with the care and resources necessary to fully recover. If we find that your condition will require further treatment or care, we will refer you accordingly.
