Same-Day Appointments

We're ready whenever you are! If you call before 3 p.m. we can usually schedule a same-day appointment.  If you can't come in, a nurse or provider will give you recommendations by phone before the end of the day. We are also expanding availability for "virtual appointments" via smartphone for your convenience.

Open your health record 24/7 with our secure Patient Portal or the Healow app for smartphones.  Send us a message, request an appointment or look over your test results at your own convenience.  For more information, click here to go to the "Patient Access" page.
