To Schedule an Appointment
All appointments are scheduled in advance. We will provide you with the earliest appointment available. If your physician is not available, we will offer you an alternate choice. Clinic appointment phone hours are from 8:30 A.M. to 5 P.M. weekdays. For clinic appointments, call (650)725-6079
New Patient Registration
If you are a new patient, it is necessary for us to obtain registration and insurance information prior to your appointment. If we are unable to reach you prior to your appointment, please plan on coming to the clinic at least 30 minutes before your appointment time. Please have your insurance card and any other necessary insurance billing information with you.
Please plan to arrive in the reception area 15 minutes prior to your appointment. Check in at the desk so that we can verify that your registration information is current and collect any co-payments. After your appointment, you will need to stop at the reception desk to schedule any follow up appointments.
Advice is provided over the phone by nursing personnel in consultation with your physician. The nurse will advise you regarding your current medical condition, answer immediate questions and prioritize appointments to assist the most urgent cases. For Nurse Advice, call 650.725.6079
At the Stanford Gynecology Clinic, a physician is always on call for emergency care.

Please have your pharmacy fax your prescription refill request to the clinic. If they need to speak with someone, they can call 650.725.6079 between the hours of 8:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. weekdays. Some refills may also require an office visit, particularly when you have not been seen by your physician for some time, to ensure that the medication is used safely and effectively. Patients will be notified if an appointment is needed. Please allow 24 hours for routine prescription renewals. Call to request a refill when you have 10–14 days left on your prescription so that you do not run out of your medication.
