At Health Services we strive to provide you with high quality care. We support your individual journey towards health.
University Health Services is appointment based with limited availability for walk-in care. Walk-in patients will be offered the next available appointment time. In the event of an urgent need the patient will be assessed by a triage provider and booked an appointment based on their findings. In some cases, patients will be referred to an urgent care center or emergency department for more in-depth assessment or specialized care.
Please contact the office to schedule an appointment. We offer both in-person and telehealth appointments. Let us know if you will need accommodations to schedule, or participate in, your appointment.
