2020 Coronavirus Outbreak – How Does It Affect Havertown, PA?
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a global health concern.
Call ahead if you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19.
Can I be tested for a COVID-19 infection at AFC Urgent Care Havertown? Is there COVID-19 screening available if I am not sure?
Yes, you can! Our clinic can provide screening and testing for COVID-19. All of our screening and testing for this illness are conducted remotely or at a dedicated offsite facility. At no time are suspected COVID-19 patients screened and tested at our urgent care facility in Havertown, PA. We’ve established these protocols to protect the health and safety of our staff and patients at our walk-in urgent care center.
Do not come to our clinic if you believe you may have symptoms of COVID-19. Your symptoms will instead be evaluated through a telemedicine appointment. During this virtual video visit (which can be done through a smartphone, tablet, or computer with video and audio capabilities), you will be connected with Havertown-based physicians. Through this video link, they will evaluate your symptoms and determine if you meet the current guidelines for a COVID-19 test. If those guidelines are met, we will arrange for you to be tested at a dedicated, offsite facility.
If you have any questions about this process, screening, testing, or our telemedicine system, please feel free to call during our clinic’s business hours at (484) 452-9400

Is AFC Urgent Care open for non-COVID testing and other types of visits?
Yes! AFC Urgent Care Havertown continues to serve our neighbors in the Havertown, PA area. We continue to treat a variety of nonlife-threatening illnesses and injuries. Under state law, we are an “essential business” and have continued to remain open during this public health emergency. Our other usual everyday services, such as physicals and x-rays, are also available seven days a week. You do not need an appointment to be seen by one of our board-certified physicians at our walk-in urgent care center. We only ask that if you suspect you may have COVID-19 to make a telemedicine appointment for an evaluation.
The telemedicine services we offer at AFC Urgent Care Havertown are also available for non-COVID-19 illnesses and injuries. Many of these ailments can be evaluated, diagnosed, and treated over a video visit with one of our doctors. If during a telemedicine session, our doctor feels a face to face appointment is needed, we can then arrange for one at our urgent care center. Are you unsure if your illness or injury can be evaluated over telemedicine? Just call our urgent care center during our open hours and speak with our staff. They are more than happy to help guide you through the process or give you more information about it.
Thank you. We are grateful for the trust you have shown us, and we look forward to continuing to serve you here in the Havertown, PA area.
