What if I need an urgent appointment?

Urgent appointments are for patients with an urgent medical problem that cannot wait for a regular appointment.

These appointments are booked in addition to a doctor’s existing full clinic, therefore only urgent medical problems can be addressed. At Cedars Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital our high-quality medical professionals are ready to serve you 24/7, so you can have access to elite medical care.

If you have a medical condition that requires a doctor’s attention immediately, you may find it difficult to get a quick appointment. Most doctors are extremely busy and can usually only see the scheduled patients or those with serious conditions or injuries, but by calling your doctor, consulting with him and considering alternative solutions such as an emergency room, a walk-in-clinic or another doctor, you may be able to get the urgent appointment you need.
