A Chattanooga resident recently discovered that, no matter your age or fitness level, sickness can strike at any time. While enjoying a quiet evening at home with her favorite movie, she began to feel unwell.

She was concerned.

Realizing a doctor might be able to help, she quickly went to her local AFC urgent-care and walk-in clinic on Gunbarrel Road.

At AFC Urgent Care, she knew that she was more than just a file number, she was like family. When she hurried in the door that night, she was greeted with a warm hello by the team of doctors and medical professionals that she had come to know from previous visits.

The doctor diagnosed the cause of her symptoms and explained what measures should be taken to treat the issue, all while maintaining a gentle bedside manner that set her troubled mind at ease.

“My doctor explained everything and was kind, considerate, and thorough,” said the patient. “This was another wonderful trip to people that I trust when I have last minute issues and need them treated right away.”

“At AFC Urgent Care, we want to do more than simply practice medicine, we want to serve our community,” said Dr. Todd Rudolph, Medical Director with AFC Urgent Care of East Tennessee. “We view each patient who walks in as more than just a patient. They each matter to us individually. We believe that kindness and care can and should go hand-in-hand with professional medical treatment.”
