For non-urgent matters, please make an appointment by calling (707) 826-3146.  Some appointments can be made through your Health Portal.

If you need to cancel an appointment, please call as soon as you know you will be unable to make it. This allows us to use the open appointment spot for someone else, and to provide services for as many patients as possible each day.  We appreciate your consideration.

     No-Show Charge     

A no-show fee of $30 will be charged to your account each time you:

  1. do not show up for your appointment,
  2. do not call to cancel (707 826-3146), or
  3. are sufficiently late so that another patient cannot be scheduled in that slot.

     Same Day Service

For urgent medical needs, you may speak to a receptionist or call to discuss your concerns and determine if urgent care is appropriate for same day service.  Please keep in mind that wait times can be long, depending on the number of students who need urgent care. If your condition is not urgent, we request that you schedule an appointment. Students who come for urgent care are generally seen in the order that they check in; however, this may vary depending on the urgency of the medical condition.
