In 2013, Dr. David B. Alligood had a vision: to establish the best Urgent Care practice in the Roanoke Valley. In late August of 2013, that vision began to unfold in the Bonsack area of Roanoke. The office space was obtained in the Kroger Square Shopping Center, the center was outfitted for Urgent Care, a top-notch staff was hired, and on Dec 30, 2013 we had the privilege of caring for our very first patient. EFC Urgent Care steadily grew in volume and less than 3 years later we expanded into the adjacent space.

Utilizing years of Emergency Medicine experience, we have been able to care for many patients and have keep many of the patients out of the Emergency Room.

Since 2021, our EFC Team has grown to over 20 full time staff, and our second location in Cave Spring will open very soon.
