Did you know that 1 in 4 yearly visits to the Emergency Room are classified as non life-threatening and can easily be diagnosed or treated at an urgent care clinic? ER attendance has rose by over 30% in the last 20 years leading to increased cost, increased wait times, and overcrowding. ER overcrowding leads to reductions in the quality of patient care meaning the high costs you pay often don’t match the quality of the medical care you will receive. Avoid the costs and inconvenience of the ER by visiting AFC Beaumont, the ER alternative.
Visit AFC for the treatment of non life-threatening illnesses and injuries which include:
- Colds, coughs, and flu
- Ear and sinus infections
- Pink eye, rashes, and other forms of irritation
- Allergy symptoms
- Muscle, joint, and back pain
- Fractures and breaks
- Sprains and strains
- Minor cuts
When to go to the emergency room:
- Life-threatening conditions
- Heart attack or stroke
- Open fractures
- Severe bleeding (external or internal)
- Severe head injury or other major trauma
- One-sided weakness or numbness
- Loss of consciousness
At AFC , our board certified providers will provide quality, personalized care for a variety of non-life threatening injuries and illnesses. In most cases, we treat insured patients for the cost of their standard health insurance co-pay. Because we are devoted to providing quality care to all of our patients, we also offer deeply discounted self-pay rates that are much lower than the cost of an emergency room visit.
