When to Visit an Urgent Care Center for Treatment

You can come down with an illness or sustain an injury at any time. Depending on the severity of your illness or time of your injury, your primary care provider may not be available to provide treatment when you need due to a packed schedule or office hours. Rather than waiting for hours at an emergency room to be seen, you can visit your local walk-in urgent care center for diagnosis and treatment for non-life-threatening issues in shorter amounts of time.

What kind of conditions can be treated at an urgent care center?

Our walk-in urgent care center in North Tampa can provide care for an extensive list of illnesses and injuries that may be diagnosed and treated by our medical professionals.

Our center has a full lab and radiology department, allowing us to capture digital X-Rays to quickly analyze and diagnose injuries that affect your muscles and bones which can be quickly set and casted to begin the healing process. Unlike traditional film X-Rays, digital images can be processed in under one minute and provide crisper quality, allowing our technicians to find the entire injury.

  • Bone breaks and fractures
  • Muscle spasms and sprains
  • Cuts and lacerations requiring stitches

STD & STI Testing & Treatment

Certain infections can live within your body for extended periods without developing symptoms, leaving you unaware of their existence. Because you may not experience symptoms, you may be transmitting it without even knowing. By undergoing periodic testing for sexually-transmitted diseases and infections, you will be able to have the peace of mind of knowing your status as well as your risks. Our center has a laboratory on-site, allowing us to analyze and process your results prior to the end of your visit. If you require treatment, we will be able to provide you with the care you need. AFC Urgent Care Tampa can test and provide care for the following sexually transmitted diseases:

  • Herpes
