ER Alternative

In the past years, emergency room visits have been on the rise. This can cause long waits in the ER. In. 2010, only a quarter of all ER visitors were seen within 15 minutes. If your injury or illness is not life threatening, it can mean waiting a long time. Emergency Rooms can also cost upwards of $100 and that’s just the copay.
Urgent Care facilities such as AFC Danbury are an alternative to the emergency room. Our staff is available to treat your non-life threatening injuries and illnesses without the long wait at the ER and the high costs. Often, we can treat you for no more than the cost of your PCP copay.
