Visit the Phone, Location & Hours web page for more information or call (520) 621-6490 if you have questions.

Appointments & Cancellations:

  • If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call (520) 621-6490 at least 24 hours in advance, (if you are having a procedure), 1 hour for office visit to avoid a no-show fee. These fees range from $15 - $30 depending on the time allotted for the appointment. This also enables us to open the appointment time for another patient.
  • Please arrive 20 minutes early to fill out the health form. Specific case-related medical questions will be reviewed with a doctor or nurse practitioner. Our providers are also available as needed by appointment.
  • PatientLink is available for cancelling and scheduling appointments online.

Birth Control and Other Prescription Refills:

·         At your annual exam, you will generally be given a 1-year refill for your contraception.

Refills for Prescriptions Written at the Women's Health Clinic

·      We want to help you get your prescription refills as quickly as possible. After you call for your refill, please allow time for us to access and review your individual patient record. We ask you to call at least 48 hours in advance of your prescription needs.

·      If you have not been seen in our Women's Health Clinic for more than one year, and you need an interval (few month) refill on your birth control (until you can have an annual appointment with WHC), a $10 fee will be charged to your bursar account for generating the refill prescription.

·      It is always preferable that you make and keep your annual gynecology appointment and at that time you will receive your refill for a year, as part of that visit.

Refills for Outside Prescriptions

·   If you have authorized refills at your pharmacy and would like to have your prescription transferred to the Campus Health Pharmacy, please check with the pharmacy staff for details.

Contraceptive prescriptions need annual renewal, therefore you need to schedule a birth control consultation visit in WHC (schedule online or via reception: (520) 621-6490). We will review your medical history, current prescriptions and have you sign our Birth Control Consent form. At the end of that visit you will receive a prescription for the Birth Control we have selected with you and that prescription will usually provide refills for one year.

Pap tests are started at age 21, but STD testing is recommended annually for sexually active young people. Depending on your history you may need a pelvic exam and/or additional testing at our lab.

If you have had evaluation and care at an outside clinic/doctor's office for gynecological issues, (abnormal periods, abnormal paps, infection, cysts, surgery, etc.), we ask that you have those medical records from the previous provider faxed to us: (520) 621-5510.

We cannot prescribe for patients we have never seen. You must establish care with us for us to be able to prescribe for you.

If you are calling for birth control refill prescriptions and are an enrolled patient of ours, allow 48 hours for complete processing of the request.

Depo-Provera:

·      If you have had your gynecological care, (outside of Campus Health) within the past year and just need your depo injection administered here, provide a copy of your last pap, (if you are 21 years of age or older), gynecological exam and the date of your last injection.

·      You will need an appointment with a provider in Women's Health to begin to receive your medication here. (A consent form is also required).

·      If you prefer to provide your own Depo-Provera medication, discuss with the provider at your appointment.

Emergency contraception:

  • Emergency contraception, (generic Plan B), is available over-the-counter in any pharmacy. It can be purchased by anyone 17 years of age or older.  Plan B should be taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.
  • "Ella" is a prescription emergency contraception pill that can be effective for up to 5 days’ post intercourse. An appointment with a Women’s Health Center provider is required for this prescription - call (520) 621-6493.
