AFC Urgent Care Stamford is encouraging fathers to “Man Up” and take charge of their health by making lifestyle changes and visiting our urgent care center for preventative services.

Regular wellness exam

There’s a reason why it’s called a yearly exam.  Regular exams become critical as you age to detect underlying medical conditions that can be diagnosed and treated early on.  At AFC Urgent Care Stamford, we offer a number of physicals such as DOT, pre-employment, and sports to make sure that you’re in tip-top shape and can take on the day.

Routine vaccinations

A part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle includes getting vaccinated for protection against many diseases and infections such as influenza, measles, hepatitis A and B, whooping cough and others.  Vaccines are among the safest medical products and prevent the suffering and costs associated with getting a disease or infection.  AFC Urgent Care Stamford offers vaccinations on a walk-in basis, which means you’ll never have to make an appointment to be seen by a physician.

Diet and exercise

Maintaining a healthy diet and regular physical activity can be beneficial to your overall health and reduce your chances of having life-altering health conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and more.  Do your body a favor by making the investment to sign up for a membership at your local gym and be more mindful while grocery shopping and dining out.  Not only will it help you feel good on the inside, but you’ll also look good on the outside!

Listen to your body

You may avoid visiting a physician out of pride, but if something seems off and you’re not feeling like your usual self, it’s best to seek medical attention.  Our experienced staff of medical professionals at AFC Urgent Care Stamford treat a variety of non-life-threatening health conditions seven days a week.  When booking an appointment with your primary care physician is a hassle and you don’t think your medical condition is concerning enough to visit the emergency room, our team of physician can aid you in detecting a range of medical conditions with our fully equipped lab and digital x-ray system.

Dads, keep your health in check and visit AFC Urgent Care for preventative services.  For more information about the services we provide, please contact us at 203-969-2000.
