STAMFORD, Conn. -- American Family Care (AFC)/Doctors Express Urgent Care celebrated its first year of business in Stamford in June.
AFC/Doctors Express said it offers significant cost savings and convenience. Because it doesn’t charge a large facility fee for each visit, it has saved patients, businesses and insurers over $1 million on facility fees alone in the past 12 months. AFC/Doctors Express can also be a valuable medical resource for those who don’t have a primary care physician, such as younger people new to the area, who seek convenient, high-quality services at lower costs, a press release said.
For corporations, government groups and private schools, services include pre-employment physicals, Department of Transportation physicals, workers’ compensation exams, drug screening and breath alcohol testing to help organizations maintain compliance with regulations and the safety of employees and the general public. Partnerships with other health care providers and the community AFC/Doctors Express can refer patients to physicians who provide more specialized care for a particular medical condition.
Established relationships with Departments of Social Services, schools and community health clinics can expedite getting those patients needed care. Last September, the Stamford center was recognized as “2014 Business of the Year” by the Stamford Chamber of Commerce.
AFC/Doctors Express is located at 3000 Summer St. in Stamford. Call 203-969-2000 or visit its website for more information.
