Clinic Visits


Patients should schedule their clinic visits in advance by calling 608-324-2000 (or the department-specific phone number) or making future appointments in person during a clinic visit. Our staff will work with you to offer a timely, convenient appointment. We understand that schedules can change, so we simply ask that if you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please let us know so we can reschedule the cancelled time for another patient. In the event of an urgent health care matter, every effort will be made to be see you the same day.


In order to provide you with the best possible care, it is important that you register each time you come to Monroe Clinic to assure that all vital information is current. If you are not sure where to register, the greeter at the information desk in the main lobby can direct you. Please present your insurance card, as well as any co-payments, at the registration desk.

Calling Your Physician

To speak with your physician during regular business hours, please dial 608-324-2000 or the appropriate appointment-desk phone number. If your physician is unavailable, you can leave a message and the physician will return your call. A fee may be associated with a phone consultation. If your call is an emergency, dial 911 or 608-324-1160 for the emergency room.

Making the Most of Your Appointment

Patients who take a proactive role in their treatment and health care plans enjoy better health. We see patients not only as recipients of care, but also as integral members of the health care team.
