Questions Regarding Appointments

Do I need to schedule an appointment?
Please do. We try to fit walk-ins into our schedule whenever possible, but by making an appointment you can make sure an opening will be available when you come.

How soon can I get an appointment?
You may be able to come in the same day you contact us. If there are no more openings that day, we can generally schedule your appointment within three business days.

How long will my appointment take?
The length of time varies depending on the services you request and the questions you have. Generally, you will want to allow 45 minutes to an hour for your first visit. When you come for your first visit, please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to complete paperwork before your scheduled appointment.

Will you tell anyone that I came to Blue Ridge Women’s Center?
We respect our clients’ right to privacy. Client information is kept confidential within this organization except when there is threat of physical harm (i.e., homicide, suicide, child abuse, or child neglect), which the law requires us to report.

I’m under 18. Can I schedule an appointment without my parents knowing?
Yes. Although we encourage you to involve your parents in your reproductive health decisions when appropriate, none of the services provided by Blue Ridge Women’s Center require parental notification or consent.
