The months between April and September are the most active months for ticks and it’s important for you and your family to take preventive measures all year long.

At AFC Urgent Care Yorktown Heights, we provide treatment for lyme diease on a walk-in basis.  If you’ve come in contact with a tick, please visit our urgent care center if you’re experiencing symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Bull’s-eye Pattern Rash
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

To reduce your risk of lyme disease, we recommend that you should:

  • Avoid wooded and bushy areas with high grass
  • Wear protective clothing such as pants and long sleeves
  • Conduct a full-body tick check
  • Shower after outdoor activities

Our walk-in urgent care center is open seven days a week to treat your symptoms of lyme disease.  We accept most major insurances well as offer affordable self-pay options.
