APPOINTMENT OR WALK-IN
The Decker Student Health Services Center offers students two options for seeing a clinician:
- Walk-in without an appointment.
Walk-in hours offer diagnosis and treatment of common illness and minor injuries. Walk-in care is provided from 8 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday, and students are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Wait times can vary. Check in at one of the computers in the reception area when you enter; be sure to let the receptionist know immediately if you have a fever or rash or if you are having problems breathing.
- Make an appointment.
Afternoon appointments are available for all health care needs including gynecological exams, birth control, routine STI testing, primary care, and chronic care. Nurse appointments are available for immunizations, influenza vaccination, and other appropriate nurse visits. Appointments are offered from 1 to 4 p.m. A number of afternoon appointments are reserved for "same-day" appointments and become available at 8:00 a.m. each morning. If you are unable to schedule an afternoon appointment, please check the portal at 8:00 a.m. By making an appointment, you’ll reduce your wait time and get an appointment time that’s convenient for you. Appointments are made by either going to our online student portal, signing in with your PODS username and password, and choosing New Appointment from the menu at left, or by calling us at 607-777-2221 from 9 a.m.–noon or 1–4 p.m.
