To improve patient access to care, Kleber Health Clinic offers Nurse Appointments for many common health complaints, procedures, and needs. Patients who elect to utilize the Nurse Driven Appointment will see a Kleber Health Clinic nurse in lieu of seeing their usual health care provider. Nurse driven appointments are usually walk-in appointments, but appointments can be made by speaking directly with a Kleber Health Clinic RN.
Nursing staff is unable to project wait times for walk-in appointments due to the unpredictable nature of patient needs. To help alleviate longer than anticipated wait times, patients may contact Kleber Health Clinic Nursing Department at DSN 590 2617 / 2671 or 06371 9464 2617 / 2671 to speak with a Team RN and schedule a time to be seen directly with the nurse. Patients who have pre-scheduled for a nurse appointment will be given priority over those who walk-in unexpected
If the nurse does not answer the Nursing Department phone number during normal business hours of 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., it means the nurse is with another patient, please leave a message and the nurse will call you back. When leaving a message be sure to speak clearly and provide your full name, a good phone number where you can be reached, and a brief explanation of your need
