From coughs and colds to asthma and acne, we have a staff of expert clinicians to meet your medical needs in a caring and confidential environment. Please call Student Health Services to find out when your preferred provider will be here to see you. Please let the Reception Staff know which clinician you prefer to see. Waiting time will usually be longer during peak-demand hours, but we will work to take care of your problem as efficiently as possible and get you back to doing what you want to do.
Our medical services include:
If you have an acute problem such as a yeast infection, call to make a same-day appointment or call to set up a routine gynecological exam or for a discussion of birth control. Please tell us your preference to be seen by a particular provider or a female provider.
