Urgent Appointments

If you are a referring provider and have a patient who has an urgent need to see a specialist, learn how you can make an Urgent Appointment.

Can my patient be seen sooner?

For referring providers who already have an appointment for a patient, who needs to be seen sooner and it's not an urgent case, we recommend you call Central Scheduling to inquire about rescheduling.

If needed, you may call our clinics directly and schedule accordingly.
