Sansum Clinic Now Offers Direct Scheduling

You can now schedule an in-person or Telehealth appointment directly online with Direct Scheduling, which is available on MyChart. Once you’re connected with a Sansum Clinic care provider, you can select the option to schedule an 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.  

We have added these features 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!

MyChart Wait List

Some of our departments offer a wait list option if you wish to be seen sooner than your scheduled visit. In MyChart, if the wait list is available for your appointment, you will see the option when you click on it. Once selected, if an earlier time opens, MyChart will send you a message, and you can choose to move up your visit if the new date works.

Cancellation Policy

Canceling and rescheduling appointments for a variety of reasons is a normal part of providing healthcare. However when patients fail to show up for visits, or cancel at the last minute, we are unable to fill the open slots and provide the best access to care. Our new no-show/same day cancellation policy, where a $30 fee will be charged for appointments where patients fail to arrive or cancel within 24 hours, is our attempt to encourage better communication regarding visits. We offer text reminders for all appointments so patients are aware of upcoming appointments. If there are extenuating circumstances like a sudden illness or emergency, patients can call us to explain, and no charge will be issued. Again, the goal here is to shape behavior so we can preserve all open appointment slots each day for patients who need care.  (CenCal and UHC HMO patients are exempt from this policy.)
