Learn About Our Scheduling Policy
Newbridge Health & Wellness schedules appointments by phone Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:00pm based on the provider’s set availability.
Availability is determined by a preset schedule template which has been designed to optimize patient flow and minimize wait times. This cannot be altered without Provider approval.
Patients may schedule appointments by phone, in person, through the Patient Portal or via our website. Our staff will communicate with patients through the Patient Portal once registered.
Newbridge has a designated scheduler who is trained to work with each provider’s schedule and manage appointments according to medical requirements and/or restrictions.
Sick or Urgent Visits
Slots are preset and saved for same day emergency illness calls. Sick visit slots are available Monday through Thursday to accommodate urgent sick visits, depending on the situation. Sick visits are generally made on the day of appointment and are only used if necessary. If there are no Sick Visits left on that day, we can schedule for the following day as available and/or recommend that you see your PCP.
Please note – Newbridge is a consultative clinic, we do NOT service acute, urgent or emergent situations except in the case of tick bites. We will do the best we can to assist in scheduling you with a provider during urgently sick situations but may refer you to see your PCP, go to an urgent care clinic, and/or hospital emergency department as necessary.
Parent or Guardians
Parents/Guardians must accompany patients under 18 years of age unless the appropriate consent has been signed.
A provider will be assigned to every patient. Visits will be scheduled with the assigned provider unless the patient or parent/guardian requests otherwise, or if the assigned provider is not available.
