Sanford Health Launches Same Day Appointments

Posted: Updated:

Patients at Sanford Health are now getting same-day access to healthcare for some illnesses and injuries. The healthcare provider launched "Same Day at Sanford."

Now, patients looking for family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, and OBGYN care can now see a doctor the same day they call for an appointment. Sanford officials say this new program will help those with busy schedules get the care they need as soon as possible.

"We have just had a lot of demand, and we would like to answer the patient's needs, explains Family medicine doctor David Glatt. "We also have a number of doctors seeing patients at 7 in the morning, which is nice, it allows them to be seen, and then get to work, without out you know missing work."

Patients can schedule an appointment through Same Day at Sanford by calling their primary care clinic or the Same Day phone line at (855) SAME-DAY. When patients call the Same Day phone line, a receptionist will schedule them with the appropriate clinic so they can be seen as quickly as possible.

Appointments will be treated the same as an office visit, and are available regardless of insurance coverage. You can read more about Same Day at Sanford with the link to the right of this story.
