Appointment Tips

Helpful Tips...Know your ABCs

A

  • Appointments made in advance save you time.
  • Allow enough time for your appointment. You will need at least 30 minutes - 1 hour.
  • AM hours are usually less busy- use these hours whenever possible.
  • Ask to make a follow-up appointment with the same provider when possible. 

B

  • 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.

C
