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, backed by a well-qualified staff, in comfortable yet modern facilities.
AFC Urgent Care is known for advanced patient care provided by expert physicians and staff, particularly in the areas of urgent care and occupational medicine.
Our ability to provide state-of-the-art treatment stems from our commitment to teamwork, collaboration, and first class patient care.
We believe in ourselves, medicine, our company, our co-workers and most of all our patients.
Watertown is located in Middlesex County in Eastern Massachusetts, six miles northwest of Boston on the Charles River. It is bordered on the North by Belmont and Cambridge, on the South by Boston and Newton, and on the West by Waltham.
With the Charles River flowing through it, Watertown is an energetic community offering hundreds of dining, shopping, and recreational opportunities. Watertown boasts the third largest Armenian community in the United States, just behind the California cities of Fresno and Glendale. Accessible by public transportation through the MBTA bus and trackless trolley lines, Watertown is home to an active business community. It is currently home to Tufts Health Plan, the Perkins School for the Blind, Sasaki, Harvard Business Publishing, Bright Horizons Family Solutions and Athena Health.
Watertown maintains 13 multi-purpose parks and playgrounds throughout the town. The size of these parks ranges from one acre for instance at the Cunniff Elementary School to 14 acres at Filippello Park. There are 15 tot-lots that have or will have a rubberized safety surface and the most modern equipment for use by our youth. There are 16 tennis courts and 15 basketball courts with approximately half of those facilities having lights for seasonal evening use. We also have two street hockey courts and one skate park for all skill levels. There are nine little league size baseball/softball fields, two major league size baseball fields, and one football field with stands for 1,500 spectators. There is a 400-yard walking path at Filippello Park where young children can also ride their small bicycles. The Victory Field is home to Watertown High School Red Raiders sporting events and there is a 400-meter rubberized track that is also used by our residents for walking and running.
Watertown is located 6 miles from Boston, which is the epitome of the historical and the contemporary.

Whether you’re a bonafide fashionista or a whimsical window shopper, Boston’s independent boutiques, galleries, department stores and brand name outlets are certain to suit your needs. From spring through fall, the local farmer and artisan markets beckon from city parks and squares. Recreational activities range from spectator sports (think Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins & Celtics) sailing and kayaking the Charles River, cutting figure eights on Frog Pond, jogging along the Esplanade or posing downward dog on the Greenway.
