24/7 Appointment Scheduling

Now Available: 24/7 Appointment Scheduling

Few people love visiting the doctor—whether it’s because you’re not feeling well or for a routine check up.

Yet, when you do get sick or finally have a moment to call the doctor, it may be late in the evening. So, you wait until the office opens at 8 a.m. only to be placed on hold or be told to call another number.

The process is frustrating. So, Austin Regional Clinic fixed it.

Don’t wait ‘til 8! At ARC, you don’t have to wait until the office is open to book a medical appointment.

Patients can now schedule an appointment with a patient representative 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means less waiting and quicker scheduling.

“We value our patients’ time and want to make it easy for them to access care,” said Marissa Cummins, ARC After Hours Manager. “It’s as simple as that.”

Patients can call 512-346-6611 to book an appointment with a customer service representative at any time, on any day of the week. Or, make an appointment online on the ARC website or via MyChart, the ARC patient portal.

Everyone knows the relief of marking one more thing off of a lengthy to do list, and we are happy to help people do just that.

Whether it’s late at night after you’ve put the kids to bed or on the weekend, give us a call to book your doctor appointment. Don’t Wait ‘Til 8!
