Routine clinic appointments are Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons between 12:30 and 4:30 p.m. The clinic providers are rounding on patients in the hospital during the morning or seeing patients receiving infusion services. Same-day urgent appointments are made on an as needed basis. Please call 414-805-2220 for an appointment.

Transportation to Your Appointment

If a family member or friend is able to bring you, you may also qualify to be paid for mileage. To schedule transportation, you will need to call at least 48 hours before your appointment. It’s best to call Medical Transportation Management (MTM) as soon as you know about your appointment.
