YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- AFC Urgent Care, will be expanding its signature brand of quality health care with a new state-of-the-art center in Yorktown Heights, opening on Thursday, Feb. 4, with a VIP ribbon-cutting from 2 - 3 p.m.
AFC is the second largest privately owned operator of urgent care and accessible primary care facilities in the country,
Dr. Rajesh Gupta, an emergency room doctor, will lead the AFC Yorktown team as its medical director. He is optimistic about his new career as a business owner, which started last year when he bought an AFC Urgent Care franchise.
Since the purchase, Gupta has been actively preparing for its grand opening at 3379 Crompond Road.
“I am looking forward to being more involved with my patients and having continuity of care, which is very different than being in an emergency room setting,” said Gupta, who has 28 years of experience in emergency medicine. “Developing relationships, building stronger ties with the community and serving a town where urgent care is not as accessible are the main reasons I am doing this.”
The urgent care center will have its own on-site lab and digital X-ray equipment, enabling doctors to diagnose and treat illnesses and set broken bones, all under one roof.
Additional services will include all typical urgent care services, plus pre-employment exams, drug testing, breathe alcohol tests, sports and school physicals, DOT physicals, pre-surgical physicals and vaccinations, including travel vaccinations.
Gupta is also very passionate about serving those who have served the country and in doing so is making it his priority to see that all veterans have the best healthcare available.
AFC Urgent Care Yorktown will be accepting Tricare, the veterans’ health insurance plan and is looking forward to working with local veterans’ organizations and facilities to bring health awareness, care and education to all the veterans in the area.
Gupta is a 14-year resident of Yorktown with his wife, Seema. They have raised two sons and have been active members of the community.

The event's distinguished guests will include state Sen. Terrence P. Murphy; George Oros, chief of staff to Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorinop; Yorktown Supervisor Michael Grace; Yorktown Chamber President Eric DiBartolo; Gateway Chamber President Deb Milone.
