American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of urgent care and accessible primary care, continues to expand its national healthcare network with the opening of the 4th AFC urgent care clinic in greater Los Angeles. The new state-of-the-art facility is now seeing patients seven days a week in Agoura Hills. The independently-owned location is conveniently located next to Starbucks in the Twin Oaks Shopping center on Kanan Road.
The new AFC urgent care center provides a comprehensive list of medical services that save families time and money. “No appointment is ever needed at AFC, and you will always see an experienced medical provider during your visit,” explains Svetlana Kertanova, CEO of AFC Agoura Hills. “We are living in unprecedented times, seeking out healthcare during a pandemic can be stressful, you can count on AFC always providing top-notch care in a safe, clean environment.”
Over the last 38 years, AFC has pioneered the concept of non-emergency room urgent care and expanded its footprint to more than 20 states. All AFC clinics are designed, equipped, and staffed to provide accessible primary care, urgent care, and minor emergency treatment. Each clinic features a high-tech approach, including digital x-rays, on-site lab testing, state-of-the-art diagnostics, and electronic medical records. The clinics are staffed by kind, caring, and compassionate healthcare professionals. The new AFC serves patients seven days a week, no appointments are necessary, plus the clinic also offers AFC TeleCare, an easy to use telehealth option.
“Having an AFC in the community helps reduce the burden of overworked emergency rooms and cuts down the wait time for patients with non-life-threatening emergencies,” Kertanova said. “Our objective is always to offer fast, efficient and affordable care and to have patients treated and out the door in as little as 30–45 minutes.”
Dr. Salvador Plasencia is among the experienced medical providers who are treating patients at AFC Agoura Hills. He is a primary care physician who is trained in both internal medicine and pediatrics. “Our team at AFC Agoura Hills is looking forward to becoming the go-to healthcare destination for busy families in the community,” says Dr. Plasencia. “AFC’s medical staff is equipped to provide COVID-19 testing, set a broken bone, administer vaccines and even give teens sports physicals every day of the week. We are always here to help answer your healthcare questions.”
AFC’s Agoura Hills location also features a full suite of occupational medicine and workers’ compensation services. These services include OSHA-mandated medical surveillance exams, DOT and non-DOT drug screens and physicals, and breath alcohol tests, among many other services.
