How to Schedule Your Appointment

We are updating some appointment and procedure practices to help lessen the spread of the new coronavirus and COVID-19. In some cases, appointments or procedures may need to be rescheduled. If there are changes to your care, your provider will contact you. Request an appointment by calling 443-997-7237

  • Walk-in Exams Updates

    No walk-in exams are offered at any Johns Hopkins Medical Imaging location. This includes no walk-ins for any patient coming from on-campus clinic.

    If a same-day appointment for X-Ray or any other imaging exam is needed, the patient or referring provider’s office should call the imaging location directly to schedule.

  • Breast Imaging Appointment Updates

    Due to COVID-19, we will be making the following changes to upcoming mammogram appointments in order to maximize social distancing and reduce risk:

    • Breast screening available at all sites starting May 15
    • Diagnostic, ultrasound, and biopsy mammograms until June 30 will be scheduled only at Green Spring Station in Lutherville, Bethesda or the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center in downtown Baltimore.

    If your appointment needs to be rescheduled, we will reach out to you via phone.

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