Fountain City is one of the popular neighborhood communities in the north Knoxville area. Officially established in 1962, Fountain City became an annexation of Knoxville after residents showed a great deal of love and care for the suburban community.  People from all over the Knoxville area and east Tennessee frequently venture through Fountain City for the quaint shops, unique eateries, and Fountain City Lake (Duck Pond).

With popular boutiques such as Gracie Lee’s, Folly Boutique, and Salt & Pepper Boutique, it’s no wonder shoppers flock to this area. Fountain City is also home to popular local restaurants like Sam and Andy’s, Archer’s BBQ, and Inskip Grill, making this suburb a must-see in the Knoxville area. If you’re looking for fun outdoors, a trip to Duck Pond, Fountain City SkatePark, or Baxter Gardens (during the month of April) is a local hub for visitors and locals alike. 

Fountain City brings a number of people to the area between residents and travelers, making it essential to stay healthy and prevent the spread of illnesses. While you’re out shopping and dining at your favorite destinations, take precautions to ensure you don’t catch or spread contagious illnesses like the flu, strep throat, or stomach bugs.

Here are a few ways to prevent spreading and catching illnesses while in public:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Sneeze or cough inside your elbow
  • Stay hydrated
  • Keep a respectable distance from others
  • Apply hand sanitizer after leaving a shop or restaurant

It’s always a good idea to avoid going out if you’re feeling unwell. We understand that unplanned illnesses and accidents happen, so it’s essential to take the necessary precautions and practice respectful habits when they do occur. If you start feeling sick while you’re out in Fountain City, visit AFC Urgent Care and Walk-in Clinic where our team is ready to help you get back to feeling your very best.

At AFC Urgent Care, we prioritize your well-being by keeping your visit quick, efficient, and affordable. When you start feeling sick or get an injury, visit our walk-in clinic to get the fast relief you need. We are conveniently located near several pharmacies in the heart of Fountain City, accessible to residents from every corner of the community. Visit AFC Urgent Care, and we will help you get back to the life you love in Fountain City.

Most Visits are under One Hour

We understand you don’t want to spend hours in a clinic, especially when you’re sick. Emergency rooms are notorious for taking hours for one visit, plus the time it takes picking up your prescription. At AFC Urgent Care, we respect your time and give you fast relief. Getting help shouldn’t require hours of your time, taking you away from life’s responsibilities. We keep your visit quick and efficient 7 days a week, with no appointment necessary.

Affordable Care

No one wants to spend valuable money on medical bills. We understand that high-quality care shouldn’t require outrageous price tags. The average ER visit costs $1,300 while a basic urgent care visit costs $100. More than 70% of ER visits can be treated at an urgent care so you don’t have to compromise quality, cost-effective care.

Quality Service

At AFC Urgent Care, our team has top tier medical professionals with at least one doctor always on-site. Our experienced staff provides quality care from the beginning to the end of your visit. We treat common illnesses and injuries like the flu, strep throat, allergic reactions, sprains, and more. If we are unable to treat your injury or illness, we will refer you to the appropriate healthcare alternative.
