The last thing you want to do when you’re in need of treatment is to sit idly in a waiting room for countless hours. This is almost always the case when you go to an Emergency Room, as hospitals are frequently overcrowded and understaffed.
Meanwhile, a primary physician probably isn’t your best bet either, as they’re often booked for weeks in advance and have limited hours of operation.
For any non-life threatening injury or illness, you’re best option would 100% be to visit us over at AFC Urgent Care in New Bedford, MA. Here, we are more-than-happy to accommodate any walk-in visit during our extended business hours. Between our state-of-the-art facilities and board-certified physicians, we can treat a number of injuries/illnesses that you probably never knew could be cared for at an urgent care center.

Our walk-in services extend far beyond just urgent care, as we can accommodate non-serious, day-to-day treatments as well. This includes occupational health services and routine physicals.
