We are proud of the way the healthcare industry shifted and changed during the course of the pandemic. All of the adjustments, virtual visits and telemedicine options allowed people the resources they needed in a safer environment.
With the pandemic’s emergency status is set to expire in May, there will be some changes to healthcare practices, including some aspects of telemedicine. We have good news, though!
An in-person visit to AFC Urgent Care Gastonia will always be available and will continue to provide all of our patients with an efficient and high-quality visit. Read on to learn why an in-person visit can help you feel better faster.
Why Does an In-Person Visit Matter?
When you stop by our center, you will be treated with kindness and compassion from all of our staff. A warm smile will greet you at the front doors and our medical providers will work hard to assess and diagnose your condition. Many of our staff actually even live in the Gastonia area, making us uniquely connected to the community and our patients.
In addition, an in-person visit ensures that our medical team can completely assess and evaluate your condition. By being able to physically see, touch and investigate the issue, our team can get a better understanding of your injury or illness! We can also take the time we really need to in order to connect with our patients.
What to Expect from an AFC Visit
- Access to testing like bloodwork or an X-ray
- Quality patient/provider relationships
- Accurate and comprehensive diagnosis
- Personal touch and genuine compassion
Can AFC Help Me Feel Better Faster?
We don’t want to discredit telemedicine and virtual visits! They were a wonderful resource during a time of uncertainty and helped many people stay safe and healthy during the pandemic. However, the benefits of an in-person visit when you are sick can’t be beat.
If we need to investigate your condition further, we are able to do so. Bloodwork, rapid tests and X-rays are only possible with an in-person visit. All of these resources and diagnostic tools allow us a more comprehensive view and can even help catch an issue that would have been overlooked through a screen. We are here for you seven days a week and no appointment is ever needed!
