Frequently Asked Questions
How can I get an appointment?
You can self-refer or refer your family members by calling the clinic to schedule an intake or through a triage appointment by phone to ensure that we are the right fit for your concern. Your PCM may refer as well but there is no need to delay care by waiting for a PCM appointment. A first time appointment can usually be scheduled within 10 calendar days.
Where are you located?
Up the hill from the ED in building 3810 on the third floor above the library.
Are telehealth appointments available?
Yes they are in many cases but at the discretion of the provider based on rapport and diagnosis.
Can I speak with my child's provider?
Confidentiality will be discussed based on your child’s age at initial appointment. Some communication is available via Patient Portal on MHS GENESIS.
