Emergency rooms are often overcrowded, with non-emergent patients often waiting up to several hours for examination and care and then receiving high bills to cover treatment costs. Did you know that an urgent care center can treat most of the non-life-threatening conditions patients bring to the emergency room? AFC Urgent Care Lakewood can treat a wide range of illnesses and injuries, with short wait times and more affordable costs to walk-in patients.
