Make an appointment

After you choose a primary care provider (PCP) at MIT Medical, you may want to make an appointment. You cannot see your PCP without an appointment.

The easiest way to make an appointment is to call your PCP’s office. When you call, explain why you need the appointment. If you are sick or hurt, you will get an appointment very soon. If you just need a routine physical exam, you might have to wait several weeks or even a month. Read more about appointments with your PCP.

Your first appointment: If you are seeing your PCP for the first time, you will need to fill out a medical history form. You can download the form in English, ChineseJapaneseRussianSpanish, or Korean. Print the form, fill it out at home, and bring it with you to your first appointment.

Sign up for HealthELife: When you come to MIT Medical for the first time, ask anyone at any desk to help you sign up for HealthELife. You can use HealthELife to send messages to your PCP, Order prescription refills, request appointments, see your lab results, and more.

Interpreter services are available. Many international patients use our interpreter service when they call or come into MIT Medical. When you call or come to the office, just say, “I want to use the interpreter line” or “I need an interpreter.” Watch the video to see how it works.
