St. Petersburg, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/09/2017 -- Doctors Express has changed its name to AFC Urgent Care, but still offers the same high quality healthcare services with the same experienced physicians and staff.
For many years, Doctors Express earned its reputation in the St. Petersburg community as a trusted and respected urgent care center. Now Doctors Express is officially called AFC Urgent Care, but is still under the same ownership with the same experienced physicians and staff. AFC Urgent Care will also maintain its hours of 8AM to 8PM, 7 days a week, and will continue to offer community members quick, efficient, and reliable healthcare.
The AFC Urgent Care family was founded in 1982 by Dr. Bruce Irwin, and is now considered to be the pioneer of non-emergency room urgent care. Between 1982 and 2013, Irwin's single modest AFC Urgent Care center expanded into the nation's leading urgent care provider with more than 170 clinics around the country, sharing 2 million patients annually.
Urgent care centers have become so popular and prevalent across America because they provide convenience and affordability that traditional medical providers often cannot. Whether it's early in the morning, late at night, or a weekend, patients with non-life threatening injuries and illnesses can seek trusted medical care from AFC Urgent Care without waiting for an appointment opening or paying exorbitant emergency room costs.
