The ups and downs of the pandemic affected all of us in different ways. While we adjusted and shifted our processes to keep up with the latest guidance, our community persevered right alongside us!
The pandemic’s emergency status is about to expire in May. That means certain processes and procedures will revert back to normal, including some aspects of telemedicine.
What won’t be changing, though, are the high-quality in-person visits that a stop at AFC Urgent Care Statesville provides! Our team will care for you quickly and efficiently, and we explain why an in-person visit is the choice for you below.
What Does an In-Person Visit Look Like at AFC?
It can take a lot of courage to be seen for an injury or illness, and it can often feel overwhelming or even scary when you aren’t feeling your best. We understand, so that’s why everyone on our staff works hard to put you at ease when you come see us. Our smiling faces and compassionate nature will help reassure you in a time of uncertainty.
Once you are checked in and there is an exam room for you, you will meet with one of our medical providers for a thorough evaluation. We will inspect the area of concern, look for other symptoms and get an in-depth understanding of what is causing your pain or symptoms of illness. An up-close and personal look allows our team a more comprehensive exam, which can help us make a more accurate diagnosis.
Why We encourage an In-Person Visit
- Access to testing like bloodwork or an X-ray
- Quality patient/provider relationships
- Accurate and comprehensive diagnosis
- Personal touch and genuine compassion
How Does Your Team Make a Diagnosis?
Another good thing about in-person visits at AFC is that we have a variety of diagnostic tools in our center to help us along the way. If your condition isn’t immediately obvious to us, we can dig deeper and use all of the resources at our disposal. We won’t stop until we have an answer for you!
We can order an X-ray, do some blood work and even a quick rapid test to help get to the root of your issue. All of these tools work together to give our team a complete picture. If you were just meeting with a medical provider behind a screen, you wouldn’t get access to all of this! We are open seven days a week and you never need an appointment in order to be seen. Stop by today and feel better.
- Thorough, patient-centered visits
- Lab services
- Rapid testing for flu, COVID-19, strep throat and some STDs
We are always here for you. Come see us at AFC Urgent Care Statesville today.
