Appointment and Procedure Updates

We are updating some appointment and procedure practices to help lessen the spread of the new coronavirus and COVID-19.

  • Many Johns Hopkins patients may now have the option to have a video appointment with their provider, depending on their healthcare need.
  • In some cases, appointments or procedures may need to be rescheduled. If there are changes to your care, your provider will contact you.

Breast Imaging Appointment Change

Due to COVID-19, we will be making the following changes to upcoming mammogram appointments in order to maximize social distancing and reduce risk:
  • Screening mammograms scheduled from April 1st – 30th will be rescheduled to June.
  • Diagnostic, ultrasound and biopsy mammograms in April will be scheduled only at Green Spring Station in Lutherville, Bethesda or the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center in downtown Baltimore.
  • Appointments scheduled in May will be assessed as we closely monitor the COVID-19 situation.
If your appointment needs to be rescheduled, we will reach out to you via phone. Active Johns Hopkins MyChart users will also receive a message online through their MyChart account.

If you have any questions, please contact our call center 443-997-7237 on Monday–Friday from 7:30 a.m.–6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m.–12 noon.

Chest X-Ray Updates


Effective immediately, Chest X-Ray appointments are no longer available on a walk-in basis at any Johns Hopkins Medical Imaging location or at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center. Patients who need an outpatient Chest X-Ray should call to schedule an appointment. At this time, patients coming directly from a campus clinic will not need to schedule an appointment if the referring provider’s office properly screened for COVID-19 prior to sending patient. This is part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the safety of our patients, their families and our staff.

To schedule a Chest X-Ray appointment, please call 443-997-7237 on Monday–Friday from 7:30 a.m.–6 p.m. or Saturday from 8 a.m.–12 noon.

As always, our commitment at Johns Hopkins is to provide excellent patient care in a safe environment. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time.
