How to Schedule Your Appointment

  • If you are an existing patient and had an appointment that was postponed, our offices may contact you to reschedule. You can also call your doctor’s office or send a message via MyChart to discuss your healthcare needs so we can determine the appointment that is most appropriate. If you are a new patient, please call us at 443-997-5476 to schedule an in-person primary or specialty care visit.
    Learn more about in-person visits.
  • If you've been already scheduled for a procedure that had to be postponed, we will reach out to reschedule. If this is a new procedure, please contact us at 443-997-5476 to schedule a consultation.
    Learn more about preparing for your appointment.
  • Many new and existing Johns Hopkins patients have the option to have a video appointment (telemedicine) with their provider, depending on their healthcare need. If you don't have a device to use for a video visit, you and your provider may decide that a telephone call will meet your needs.

Existing patients must have a MyChart account to request an appointment online, or may otherwise need to call. You can enroll in MyChart to manage appointments, communicate with your provider, receive test results and request prescription renewals.
