Most patients are seen by appointment. You can schedule an appointment either by calling (865) 974-3648, by personal appearance at the appointment desk in our lobby, or through On-Line Student Health. After your visit, my nurse or I will contact you for abnormal lab results. If you need to contact me or are inquiring about lab results, please call (865) 974-2275. If you are feeling worse or not improving as expected, please call (865) 974-3648 to schedule a follow-up appointment. I will not call in antibiotic prescriptions without seeing you.
