nurseTo celebrate the contributions of urgent care providers, the Urgent Care Association of America recognizes every May as National Urgent Care Awareness Month. Before urgent care was introduced, most Americans depended on the ER and their primary care physician for medical care, with nothing in between. What urgent care brought to America was a destination for medical services that are too sudden for the primary care physician and not severe enough for the ER.

Here at AFC Urgent Care Pikesville, we’re celebrating National Urgent Care Awareness Month by continuing to provide the top-quality care we’ve built our reputation from te very day we opened. Our board-certified physicians excel at providing a wide range of medical services accessible on a walk-in basis, while getting patients in-and-out the door quickly without compromising our quality.

Why Go to AFC Urgent Care Pikesville Instead of the ER?

The emergency room is a vital community resource for treating life-threatening injuries and illnesses. Here at AFC Urgent Care Pikesville, we treat an extensive number of non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses that many believe can only be treated at the ER. These medical conditions include:

  • Cuts/Lacerations
  • Bronchitis & Respiratory Infections
  • Influenza
  • Fractures
  • Sports Injuries
  • Work-Related Injuries
  • Seasonal Allergies

At AFC Urgent Care Pikesville, we also accept most health insurances, making a visit to our center both accessible and affordable. Most healthcare plans will also only charge the low-cost primary care co-pay as opposed to the expensive ER co-pay. For those without health insurance, we additionally offer affordable self-pay options.

Why Go to AFC Urgent Care Pikesville Instead of the Family Doctor’s Office?

Having a primary care physician dramatically increases the chances of having a potentially serious illness diagnosed in its early stages. This can be life-saving, making a primary care physician vital for every person. But if you need a doctor, it generally requires you to schedule an appointment with a primary care physician. AFC Urgent Care Pikesville accepts patients on a walk-in basis for a number of medical services.

If your child is participating in sports or summer camp, we can administer sports/camp physicals seven days on a walk-in basis. This means you can skip the weeks of waiting for your child’s pediatrician and get your child ready for sports or camp quicker.
