Student Health Center


Routine medical evaluations and speciality care services (women's health care, psychiatric care, substance abuse counseling and health education) are provided by appointment. Appointments may be scheduled in person or by telephone at (585) 475-2255.

The receptionist will ask the nature of the problem in order to schedule your appointment appropriately. As always in the SHC, your information is confidential.

  • If you prefer not to discuss details, you may say that the problem is "personal".
If you feel your health concern or problem is urgent, please let the receptionist know. They may have you speak with a nurse to determine if you need an immediate or same day appointment. If you have a preference for a male or female provider, or require a sign language interpreter, please let the receptionist know.

If you need to cancel your appointment, we would appreciate 24 hours notice so we can offer your appointment to someone else. If you fail to cancel your appointment, and do not show up, you may be charged a no-show fee.

The SHC does not provide medical excuses for class absences. If you have missed class as the result of an illness, let the professor know as soon as possible. If you are evaluated in the SHC, you may opt to sign a Release of Information Form specifying the information you wish to share with the professor. Only that information will be shared. The professor must contact the SHC to speak with the provider.

What to bring to your appointment:

  • Your Student ID
  • Your insurance card
  • A list of your current medications/allergies
  • Your health questions
  • A form of payment in case you need to purchase medication or pay for a test done in the SHC. The SHC accepts cash, check, TigerBucks, Visa and MasterCard.
