At VAMC West Palm Beach, our goals are to assist you in getting an appointment without a long delay. We believe that:

  • You should be able to see a primary care provider within one to two business days.
  • You should have faster access to specialty care.

Things you should know before your appointment:

  • Please be on time.  If you need to cancel your appointment or will be late, please call VA Connect at 561-422-6838.
  • Arrive early if you need to have blood tests, X-rays, EKGs, or other tests done before you see the doctor.
  • Bring in test results if you had the tests done at another non-VA provider; your doctor will want to see the actual X-ray, MRI or CAT scan films.
