How to make a Primary Care appointment

Reasons for Primary Care Appointments

  • For new problems or concerns requiring an evaluation
  • Follow-up from prior visits
  • For STI testing
  • If you wish to request a referral or need to establish care with your primary care provider to manage ongoing medical issues.

How to make the most of your medical appointment

1. Build a relationship with your provider

Studies show patient satisfaction is higher and medical outcomes are better when patients choose a regular Primary Care Provider and maintain a relationship with them for their care. The Tang Center makes it easy! Choose your provider or learn more about our staff online on the Meet the Staff pages.

Recommended immunizations

Immunizations are important components of adult health care.

You might need to complete your childhood immunizations or obtain recommended new vaccinations or boosters. It is very helpful for you to obtain and bring a copy of your immunization record to your first appointment at UHS, and to keep careful records of any injections received during your time at UC Berkeley.
