Our nurse manager will work with you to evaluate your medical needs and arrange the most convenient schedule possible. Given that Lahey Clinic is an institution that draws clinicians from virtually every specialty into a single location, multiple appointments can be scheduled and coordinated with the ease of a single telephone call. Call us at 011-781-744-8401 to make an appointment, or request an appointment online through our secure Online Appointment Request. You may also e-mail us to ask questions or seek cost estimates.
Our staff will work with you to provide an expense estimate before you come to Lahey. If you are working with an embassy or other payor and anticipate surgery or a hospital stay (admission), we can often determine comprehensive fixed costs for those services, including all physician and hospital costs. At the time of appointment scheduling, we will request a credit card number. If you prefer to pay cash, we will assist you in arranging a wire transfer. These funds on your credit card number are held on deposit until the charges are incurred for your visit to Lahey Clinic.
