Please Call Ahead

  • To respect your busy schedule and those of your fellow students, we require you to call ahead.
  • Same day appointments are almost always available. Please call 573-882-7481 to schedule.
  • You will typically be given a same- or next-day appointment with your chosen primary care provider (PCP). Keeping the same PCP allows you to maintain long-term relationships with medical professionals who know you and your medical history and contributes to high quality of care and satisfaction.
