Our patients have indicated that they like the ability to schedule their medical appointments to fit within their busy schedules. To provide students with the shortest wait time, appointments are highly recommended. Appointments can be scheduled with a provider by calling 229-219-3200, stopping by the Health Center, or online.
Those students requiring immunizations need to make an appointment; their care will be provided by a nurse. Call the Appointment Office at 229-219-3200 to schedule an appointment.
Students who have made an appointment with Student Health should allow adequate time for their appointment so that the medical staff can provide them with the excellent quality of care that they deserve. Students should arrive at the Health Center at least 10 to 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to allow adequate time for paperwork to be completed.
We strongly encourage appointments, whenever possible, except urgent situations. For a medical emergency, dial 911.
Walk-ins will need to go to the Reception Desk and request to be seen by a Triage Nurse. Once the nurse speaks to the patient and reviews certain guidelines with the patient, the nurse will discuss the availability of appointments with the patient. Being seen by a Triage Nurse does not guarantee that you will be seen by a provider that same day. Medications can only be prescribed by a provider.
