How To Schedule An Appointment
We want to provide comfortable, consistent care for all of our patients. Therefore, we want you to have an appointment to be seen. There are a few appointments reserved each day for patients who have an urgent need. To request this type of appointment please call us. We cannot guarantee that you will be seen if you walk in without an appointment.
To schedule an appointment, please call (530) 887-2828 for the Auburn health center or (530) 477-1753 for Grass Valley.
For psychiatric emergencies, like suicidal thoughts, please call 911 or use your local emergency room.
Preparing For Your Visit
All new patients must register before their first appointment, please see How to Register. New patients should arrive at the reception desk 30 minutes before your first appointment to complete the new patient registration process. Established patients should arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time.
You will need to bring the following items to all of your appointments:
- Photo ID
- All insurance cards (Medi-Cal, Medicare or other medical, prescription or dental insurance).
- A list of medication you are taking or bring the medications with you.
- The patient services representative making your appointment will also inform you of any records or information you need to bring with you.
Cancellation, Late & No-Show Information
If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment please call us. When patients do not cancel their appointment, they deny other patients the opportunity to book that visit. We keep track of the number of “no-show” appointments a patient accumulates and patients who repeatedly miss their appointments may lose the privilege of making appointments at our community health centers.
