Frequently Asked Questions

What should you do if you cannot find a parking space?

There are clinic designated parking spots behind the security guard booth. If they are full and there are no spaces remaining in the parking garage, please do not spend valuable appointment time looking. Go to the security desk to inform them that you have an appointment and they will find you a place to park.

2. How do I get a walk-in appointment?

UFHC does not have walk-in appointments. All patient appointments are scheduled. Please call the clinic to obtain a same day/ acute appointment. The clinic schedule ensures that there are several acute appointments available each day for unexpected illnesses. Note: If you walk in for an appointment, you will be given the next available appointment time, which could be several hours later.

3. How do I renew my medications?

To refill your prescription you can call or come by the clinic to request that your medications be refilled. We require 24 hours notice for medication refills. If your prescription is expired, you will need a new prescription. You can come in or call the clinic for renewal of your medications also. The staff will let you know if you need an appointment or whether this can be handled without being seen.

4. What do I do if there are no acute appointments remaining in the clinic and my child needs to be seen for an acute illness?

We will make all attempts to accommodate sick children. If we are unable to see the child today you can call TRICARE to find an urgent care facility in your area that accepts TRICARE.

5. What options do we have for medical care when the clinic is closed?

  • Drs. are on call 24/7 at 301-312-7241. You can call the on call doctor for advice/treatment at anytime.
  • Go to urgent care after calling TRICARE. Notify UFHC after visit.
