The Center continues to be under COVID protocols. Based on these protocols, students need to call the center prior to being given an in-person appointment. Students may also be seen by zoom.
To reach the center by the phone please call (585) 385-8280.
First time counseling appointments can also be scheduled online through the patient portal.
However, the Health and Wellness Center may refer you to outside specialists or hospitals for treatment or services beyond what we provide. You or your parents/guardians are responsible for all costs incurred outside the Health and Wellness Center. Your insurance plan may cover all, part, or none of these costs. In addition, lab services are outside of the Health and Wellness Center. Fees for lab tests are billed by the laboratory company and could result in a charge which may or may not be covered by your insurance.
The Health and Wellness Center stocks limited quantities of common antibiotics for dispensing by the practitioners on an as-needed basis. In addition, our providers may write a prescription to Wegmans Pharmacy which will deliver the medication to the Health and Wellness Center for you to pick up. You can sign up for prescription delivery in the Patient Portal.
It is your responsibility to discuss missed classes with your instructor(s). For more information, please review the full Medical Excuse Policy.
