How soon are appointments available?
Appointments at Mayo Clinic are prioritized by medical necessity. Availability depends on the nature and urgency of the medical problem and whether Mayo Clinic has the services available to address the medical problem appropriately (as determined by a Mayo physician). Mayo makes every effort to offer timely appointments for urgent problems.
Can I get into Mayo Clinic without an appointment?
Mayo Clinic in Rochester accepts "walk-in" patients. This method, however, is not encouraged, and you should be prepared to wait several days to a week or longer, depending on appointment cancellations and others waiting for an appointment. Waiting times tend to be shorter in winter.
