Advanced Access Appointment Booking … How does it work?

Advanced Access Booking

Most of our doctors are booking appointments by ‘Advanced Access’ .

‘Advanced Access’ allows appointments to be scheduled within 1-2 working days and makes pre-booked appointment spots limited. The idea behind this method is to make physicians more available on the day you call for an appointment. Appropriate appointments include routine follow-ups, preventative care (i.e. Annual physicals, well-baby visits, prenatal visits, etc.), non-urgent issues (i.e. Health education, immunizations, etc.), and urgent care (i.e. Sore throats, ear aches, fever, etc.). We encourage all patients to call in for ‘same day’ or ‘next day’ appointments whenever possible, including physicals and check-ups.

About 60-70% of appointments each day open for booking either that day, or the day before. As a result, the number of ‘pre-booked’ appointments (appointments that can be booked well in advance) will be limited to about 30-40% of that day’s appointment slots. Of course, some people have schedules around work, childcare or transportation that require a more predictable, pre-booked appointment time. For these situations, there will still be a few appointment slots each day that can be booked in advance. FAQ
