Booked Appointments

We encourage you to book an appointment so that we know you are coming and can provide the best possible care. Depending on an assessment of the urgency of your concern, you might be able to see a doctor or nurse practitioner the same day or we will usually schedule an appointment within 2-3 days. For prescription refills please make sure to book an appointment in advance with the doctor who gave you the prescription.

Walk-in medical appointments are currently unavailable. To book an appointment please call ahead, no appointments will be booked in-person.

If you need to cancel or change your appointment for any reason, 24 hours notice must be given. For psychiatrist appointments, 48 hours notice must be given. If you do not give notice and do not come for your appointment, you may be subject to a missed appointment charge.

Arriving late for your appointment could result in having to reschedule your doctor's appointment, a missed appointment charge, and longer waiting times for yourself and others. To cancel or report a late appointment, please call 519-888-4096.

Gender Affirmative Care

To serve our trans and non-binary identified student’s health needs, Health Services is revising our current care model to offer gender affirmative care. The aim is to establish gender identity supports, coordinate transition related care, and to work toward dedicating our clinic as a gender affirming safe space. Currently, transition related primary care at Health Services is supported by select physicians, nurses, and a dietitian. 

Read more about our primary care provision and transition related services for trans and non-binary students on our Gender Affirmative Care page.
