We offer annual wellness exams and advice on healthy lifestyle changes to improve your overall quality of life. Physicals should be done at least once yearly for early intervention.
chronic disease management
Chronic conditions require a more structured approach to manage and we tailor the care given based on patient needs. We prevent, treat, and manage HBP, diabetes, COPD, arthritis, etc.
We dynamically approach women's health as their healthcare needs constantly change. We carry out recommended screenings like mammograms, pap smears, ovarian cysts, and STDs.
Acute care treatment
We keep our doors open all week to treat a wide range of non-life-threatening acute illnesses. We also offer an additional answering service to assist patients outside working hours.
Cosmetic Surgery Clearance
Medical evaluation ensures your safety by detecting possible surgical risks. We perform screenings to enable you to undergo surgery (required by the law) and prevent you from danger.
Sports, school, and camp physicals
Schools require physicals before they let children participate in sports and extracurricular activities. We provide affordable, quick, no-appointment physicals for school, sports, and camp.
Many jobs require employee physicals to ensure their employees are compliant with safety regulations. We can provide you with the certification needed to get you moving without delay.
Weight loss management
The right weight loss plan will make your weight loss journey easier and more enjoyable. We offer a supervised weight loss plan to help you achieve your weight loss goals more quickly.

Best doctor office I have ever been to. The staff is amazing!!! Dr. Francis is very personable and she really cares about her patients. I have never had a doctor call me to ask how I was doing. If you are looking for a doctors office that will treat you like family Afya Primary Care is the place to go.
I was welcomed with a great smile! A very good atmosphere. My attendant for my testing was great. My new Nurse Practitioner was so easy to talk with. I am very happy with my choice I felt like we were about to eat Sunday dinner together at any time. Feel free to make a appointment with Afya Primary Care. Juanita Everett
This will always and forever be my go to for primary care. The reviews are what even made me consider coming here and I see why. The staff is absolutely amazing and always welcoming. I feel like my health is their top priority and it is hands down a judgement free zone. I'm going to recommend them to everyone I know because everyone deserves a good health care team that prioritizes their well being.
I have never felt more comfortable in a doctor’s office. This is the first office where I felt welcomed with open arms from the minute I walked through the door. I can tell that Dr. Francis cares about all of her patients. I normally hold back when visiting the doctor, but this time I was able to address all of my concerns. I feel really confident in Dr. Francis and would absolutely recommend.
