I called a clinic and they said they do not have appointments to see a regular doctor. What should I do?

Unfortunately, because of the bad economy, wait times may be very long, sometimes many months.

If you need urgent care:

  • For emergencies, Call 911 or use the nearest emergency room.
  • If it is not a medical emergency, call a clinic and tell them you need urgent care
  • Try calling other clinics that may be further from you
  • See if you can be seen during drop-in hours at a free clinic

If you need a regular doctor:

  • Ask how to make an appointment to become a clinic member. Once you are a clinic member, wait times are shorter.
