More Appointment Information

We’re unable to provide childcare at our health center. For safety reasons children need to be accompanied by an adult when they’re in the waiting room. Only infants can accompany you to the exam room. Please bring a friend or family member to be with your children if you don’t have childcare at home.

You can fill your birth control prescriptions at our health center instead of the pharmacy. Birth control refills are available during all business hours. Please refill your birth control at least 48 hours in advance.

Getting a physical for school or employment? Please bring all of the required forms with you.

You can come to us for services that don’t require a medical exam. For example, birth control education and supplies; emergency contraception (AKA the morning after pill); pregnancy testing and counseling; STD testing, and testing and treatments for urinary tract infections.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to check in and complete paperwork.
