With allergy season upon us, it can be tempting to schedule a visit with your primary care physician to find some relief. Unfortunately, trying to set up a doctor’s visit can result in a logistical nightmare as you struggle to schedule a timely appointment that fits in your busy schedule.
It can take days or sometimes weeks to book an appointment with your primary care physician; for many allergy sufferers, that’s far too long. At AFC Urgent Care, there is no need to make an appointment – walk-ins are always welcome!
When considering where to go for treatment for your seasonal allergies, more than likely the emergency room isn’t ideal. In some cases, as when an allergy-sufferer is going into anaphylactic shock, an emergency room is appropriate, but most allergies can be tended to in an urgent care facility.
Emergency rooms are notoriously overcrowded and uncomfortable places. It’s not uncommon for patients with “lower priority” sicknesses to wind up waiting to be seen for hours on end. In addition to saving you time and money, choosing to visit an urgent care over an emergency room will help free up hospital resources. By reducing the number of patients in an emergency waiting room, doctors and nurses can tend to those patients who have more serious injuries or illnesses. Avoid the stressful wait and stop by an AFC location near you to be treated promptly.
Avoid the stress of struggling to schedule to an appointment and long wait times at the emergency room. Visit AFC Urgent Care, your local urgent care, family care and walk-in clinic designed to provide relief for sick visits, minor surgical procedures and of course, seasonal allergies.
