Appointments At the Vickers Clinic, we pride ourselves in patient service. We understand that patients do not like to wait weeks for an appointment, even if it is an annual physical or a procedure. During Clinic hours, we offer same day appointments for urgent situations, and next day appointments for most other cases. Procedures can typically be scheduled within a week from the time you call. Our nurse, Debbie, is always available to speak with patients during Clinic hours about health concerns and prescription refills.
