AM hours are usually less busy- use these hours whenever possible.

Ask to make a follow-up appointment with the same provider when possible. 

Be on time! Late arrivals may need to be rescheduled.

Be specific about the reason for your visit. This will allow the medical scheduler to assign the most appropriate provider and time frame for your visit. 

Bring cash, ATM, Visa or Master card to your visit for any charges for lab tests, medications, etc. that may be necessary.

Be sure to bring your student identification card.

Cancel or reschedule appointments in a timely manner-Give other students a chance to fill the time.
