About AFC Urgent Care Bridgeport 

Starting with a single location in 1982, American Family Care (AFC) has pioneered the concept of non-emergency room urgent care. With its 2013 acquisition of the Doctors Express franchise, AFC has become the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational medicine, with more than 160 clinics and 500 in-network physicians caring for 2 million patients a year. Ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S., AFC’s stated mission is to provide the best healthcare possible, in a kind and caring environment, while respecting the rights of all patients, in an economical manner, at times and locations convenient to the patient.

AFC Urgent Care in Bridgeport opened March 2014 and is the first center established  by Dr. Steven Heffer, Owner/Medical Director. We have a comfortable lounge to wait in, a very friendly and professional staff and state of the art equipment (including digital x-ray and a full lab) to take care of all your urgent care needs.

In December of 2016, our second Bridgeport center opened up, conveniently located at 4200 Main Street. We look forward to continuing to expand on the AFC Urgent Care brand.


Our Mission

Our mission was born out of a desire to change the way urgent health care is delivered in the United States. We believe that urgent care should be provided by highly trained physicians, supported by a well-qualified staff, in comfortable yet modern facilities.
