Urgent Care Services provided for patients in Thornton, Westminster & Henderson, CO
General Illness Treatment
You may not have the time to wait for an appointment with your primary care physician when you begin to experience symptoms of an illness, or have the need to visit the emergency room for treatment. AFC Urgent Care Thornton can provide treatment for illnesses including upper respiratory symptoms, strep throat, flu, cold and sore throat.
Injury Treatment & Minor Surgical Treatment
Sudden injuries may require immediate treatment in order to heal properly, including sprains, fractures, and deep lacerations. AFC Urgent Care Thornton can diagnose breaks and sprains with digital imaging and apply necessary casts or splints to set the injury. We can also perform stitches on lacerations that are deep enough to require stitches in order to prevent infection and heal properly.
Digital X-Rays for Injury Diagnosis
To properly diagnose many internal injuries such as sprains, fractures and tears, your physician may require imaging tests to get a more comprehensive look at it, especially if the injury is completely internal. A digital x-ray not only gives the physician a better look at what is wrong, but allows them to detect and treat the entire injury and prevent chronic pain issues from smaller things that lead to bigger issues down the line. In addition to requiring less radiation to capture the images, digital x-rays can be processed and analyzed in under two minutes.
STD & Lab Testing Services
AFC Urgent Care Thornton has an on-site laboratory, which allows for quick processing and analyzing of blood, urine and hair samples for patients seeking drug, STD and routine testing. Because the lab is within our premises, we can get results back quicker than using an external facility, allowing us to begin necessary treatment immediately.
