Making an Outpatient Appointment

New outpatient patient appointments must be scheduled by calling 865-970-9800. Routine new patient appointments are normally scheduled within 2-3 weeks.

What to Expect on Your First Visit

First visits at Peninsula Outpatient Clinics can take up to 4 hours to process your entire visit. 

  • This visit will include seeing a therapist, nurse, and a medical provider (MD/APN).  Being able to see these service providers ensures that all your needs are addressed in your initial visit.

What to bring on your first appointment

  • Insurance Cards
  • Photo ID
  • Medications
  • Book and/or snack to enjoy during your wait time

Children under 16 must be accompanied by their legal guardian or parent, not a step-parent.  Bring any legal paperwork regarding your child. 

Crisis Appointments

Crisis appointments are made as needed. The caller may be directed to a Peninsula site, or if it is a psychological emergency the caller may be advised to go to the nearest emergency room.

Missed Appointments

We understand when appointments need to be rescheduled.  We do our best to get you in the next available appointment time.
