About Us

The first American Family Care Clinic (AFC) was opened in 1982 by D. Bruce Irwin, M.D. Since then, our model of “putting the patient first” and providing an alternative, non-emergency room option for urgent care has made us an industry leader and a patient favorite at our clinics throughout the country. All AFC centers provide access to primary care, urgent care, minor emergency treatment, and occupational medicine.

Through a high-tech, high-touch approach, AFC has pioneered the concept of non-emergency room urgent care, offering patients a simple and efficient alternative to lengthy and frustrating trips to the ER. Our average patient visit lasts about an hour from registration to discharge, and offers on-site access to digital x-rays, lab testing, state-of-the-art diagnostics, electronic medical records, and well-trained teams of medical professionals. Residents of the communities we serve love knowing that they can rely on our services when they need urgent, non-emergency care. Providing all of these services at our conveniently-located clinics doesn’t just make life easier for our patients – it also helps the emergency rooms in the territories we serve to spend more time treating true emergencies while we take care of the rest.
