How do I take advantage of the services?
Just report to the clinic during regular hours. You’ll need to provide registration information (name, address, medical history, chief complaint) and present your student ID. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Life-threatening emergencies are cared for first.
Can I get my allergy injections/medications through the Clinic?
If your family doctor has previously evaluated you for allergies and you are currently undergoing treatment, you may have these services at the Clinic. You’ll need to provide a prescription from your family physician. If you receive allergy injections, please bring your vial(s) of antigens and instructions on your first visit. We’ll store these for you and provide the injections according to the physician’s directions.
What if I need care above what’s available at the Clinic?
We will refer you to the appropriate resource, depending upon the need. This may include a referral to King’s Daughters Urgent Care Center, a specialist or family doctor at King’s Daughters Medical Center Ohio. If you have another preference, please let us know and we will accommodate your request.

What should I do if I need help and the Clinic is closed?
