Cleveland Clinic Florida now offers same-day appointments. In most cases, depending on the level of care you need and the time of day when you call, you'll be seen by a physician that day.
If you call 877.463.2010 or 844.41.TODAY before noon, we’ll offer you a same-day appointment and if you call after noon, we’ll offer you an appointment for the next day.
Get the care you need, right away.
What happens when I call for a same-day appointment?
When you call 877.463.2010 or 844.41.TODAY, we search across Cleveland Clinic Florida locations for an appointment that suits your needs. If you call before noon, we’ll offer you a same-day appointment and if you call after noon, we’ll offer you an appointment for the next day.
Here’s what to expect:
- We will ask you for basic identifying information, such as address, phone number and insurance carrier. Please note: Cleveland Clinic does not require referrals, but your insurance carrier may require them to provide coverage of your visit or procedure and may result in an appointment further out.
- Next, we will ask you a series of questions about your symptoms to help find the most appropriate doctor to treat you. In most cases, we’ll be able to schedule the appointment with this information.
Regardless of the reason for your call, the majority of patients will have an appointment when they hang up with our schedulers.
Are there times when I won’t receive a same-day appointment?
Our first priority is to ensure that people who have an urgent need to be seen by a physician are given appointments right away. It is possible that your appointment will be scheduled further out if you need a routine physical/annual wellness check-up or if you need highly specialized care and your need is less urgent.
However if your concern is more immediate, you can visit one of Cleveland Clinic Florida's Emergency Departments.
