Scheduling Appointments at UHS Primary Care
Visits to the University Health Service (UHS) Primary Care are by appointment. We have offices on the River Campus, in the UR Medical Center, and at the Eastman School of Music. To schedule an appointment, call (585) 275-2662 or log into UHSConnect.
Whenever possible, appointments will be scheduled with your UHS primary care provider (PCP) at the office where you would like to be seen. If your PCP is not available at a time that fits your schedule, we will schedule an appointment with a member of your PCP’s team, which includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses.
If you need to cancel your appointment: Please call (585) 275-2662 and leave a phone message at the prompt. We ask that you call at least 24 hours in advance.
Mask guidelines at UHS: Please read the Instructions for UHS Patients before coming to UHS. Students and all UHS non-student patients must call (585) 275-2662 to schedule an appointment before coming into the UHS Building or into any UHS office. Everyone entering UHS offices must wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, please ask for one as soon as you come inside. These policies have been implemented to protect the health and safety of our patients and our staff members. If you have questions about these instructions, call UHS at (585) 275-2662 for assistance.
Telemedicine Appointments with UHS Primary Care Providers
In Spring 2020, to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission and in preparation for a possible rapid increase in demand for health care, UHS implemented telemedicine services to provide care when appropriate by phone or through a video connection. To schedule an appointment for a telemedicine appointment with a UHS health care provider call UHS at (585) 275-2662.
