Call 617-573-8260 to schedule an appointment. All students will be seen free of charge.
Scheduling an appointment is the way to go for most issues like: Physical exams; immunizations; regular check-ups; follow-up visits; questions; prescription refills; referral requests; ongoing or non-urgent medical issues. You can schedule a time that is most convenient for you. Be sure to let the receptionist know why you need an appointment, and if you have more than one need or request, so that sufficient time can be allotted to address your issue(s). Failure to schedule the proper amount of time may require you to schedule another appointment. If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
Testing is available, whether or not you will have to pay out of pocket for the testing depends on whay type of health insurance you have. Please review your health insurance policy for coverage details. There are also many free and low-cost STI testing sites in Boston. You can also call Health & Wellness Services for more information regarding STI testing.
Note: Suffolk University's Health and Wellness Services is committed to providing high quality health care for its enrolled students in a safe and private enviorment. Our Statement of Confidentiality explains how we maintain the confidentiality of your student health care records.
Please bring your Health Insurance card with you (you should carry it with you at all times) to your appointment. If it is determined that you need lab work (like a throat culture or blood tests), the lab will bill your insurance. Without the card, the lab will send the bill to you and you will either have to pay the bill or resolve the issue between the lab and the insurance company on your own.
Monday-Friday: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
During these hours a clinician is available to evaluate urgent matters. Patients will be seen on a first come, first served basis. During busy times of the year, like flu season, many people come for walk-in appointments. During these times, walk-in appointments can fill up quickly the start of a session. Therefore, it is best to arrive at least 15 minutes before you plan on being seen. You can not call for a walk-in appointment. You must be physically present in the office.
What do we mean by “urgent”? A good rule for an appropriate walk-in visit is that you are feeling ill or injured enough to miss class or work. Alternatively, you may have an issue that is time sensitive: e.g. you need emergency contraception.
It is always a good idea to call ahead to see if walk-in is full. Please understand that we may need to prioritize patients according to severity, so that someone who arrives after you may need to be seen before you.
