Schedule an Appointment

Patients are seen by appointment only. Walk-ins are not permitted.

Patients without a scheduled appointment are advised to contact the Telephone Triage Nurse to schedule an appointment.

As their condition warrants, the SHC refers those with urgent or emergency health-related issues calling in or walking in without an appointment to a local Urgent Care/Walk-in Clinic or an Emergency Room.

If you are uncertain where you should be seen, you may contact our Telephone Triage Nurse, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for additional guidance.

If you feel you are experiencing a health-related emergency, call 911. Transportation from the SHC to other off-campus healthcare facilities, either by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) or a privately owned vehicle, is not a Health Center provided/covered service.

Call (865) 974-5080 weekdays before 4 pm to schedule an appointment. Due to the volume of calls, you will likely need to leave a message with your return call information, as requested. Make sure you are available to accept return calls and, if not, that your Voicemail is accessible and receiving new messages. Calls for appointments are returned on the day of your call. For emergencies, call 911.

***Before calling, we encourage you to review our Clinic and Services options to more quickly facilitate your appointment scheduling.***

Widespread vaccination significantly reduces the risk of spread in the community and households and is the best action you can take to protect yourself and others.
