Schedule an Appointment

When contacting us to schedule an appointment, please keep in mind that our schedule is often very busy with an average wait of two weeks for an appointment; during peak times (end of the semester) the wait is longer. Appointments with the psychiatrist and nutritionist are often three to four weeks. The “Helpful Resources” link on the left provides a list of local providers which may be useful if you are interested in pursuing options in the community.
