All about appointments

If you have an MIT Health Plan, you can choose a primary care provider (PCP) at MIT Medical. When you want to see your PCP, you will have to make 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.

Interpreter services are available. Many international patients use our interpreter service when they call or come into MIT Medical. Use our online form to request an interpreter in advance. The interpreter will be ready to begin when you arrive. You can also ask for an interpreter when you check in or at any time during your appointment. For phone calls, just say, “I need an interpreter,” when you call and tell us the language you need. We will put you on hold while we add an interpreter to the call.
