Appointments at Mayo Clinic and within Internal Medicine are prioritized on the basis of medical need. Appointment requirements vary depending on the division or specialty of the physician. Timely appointments are available for urgent problems.

Most divisions within Internal Medicine do not require a doctor's referral. Many insurance plans require a referral from a plan doctor to get access to Mayo Clinic. It is always a good idea to check with the insurance company to determine what, if any, requirements it has for obtaining care at Mayo Clinic.
