Sansum Clinic Now Offers Direct Scheduling

You can now schedule an In Person or Telehealth appointment with MyChart Direct Scheduling.  Once you’re established with a Sansum Clinic care provider (meaning, you’ve had a previous visit with that provider), you will have the option to schedule your next appointment entirely online, any time of day, at your convenience.   You can also add your name to a Wait List so you can be notified when a sooner appointment opens up.  This feature is available on the web as well as through the MyChart App on your phone.

We have added these features as a convenience because we have heard that patients wanted some additional self-service options. But please remember, you can always call us.  We are here for you!

We are rolling out Direct Scheduling one department at a time to ensure this goes smoothly.

  • Available to All MyChart Patients

To get started, log in to MyChart and search the menu for “Schedule an Appointment” to go to the scheduling page.
