Same-day Appointments

We get it. There are times when taking care of your health falls to the bottom of a long to-do list. Once you finally get around to scheduling an appointment, the last thing you want to do is wait to receive quality care.

That’s why Allegheny Health Network is happy to offer primary care and specialty same-day appointments. If you call 412.DOCTORS (412.362.8677) before 11 a.m. Monday - Friday1, we’ll offer you a same-day appointment with a specialty doctor, primary care physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant that day2. If you call after 11 a.m. or over the weekend, we’ll work to find the next available appointment that is convenient for you.   

Never having to wait for your health is #LivingProof
