Most Catholic Health primary care centers offer same-day appointments. Please call the office to schedule your appointment.

Call 911 (Emergency Medical Services) for any life threatening emergency that requires immediate medical care (inability to breathe, severely choking, unconsciousness, seizure, etc.). For poisonings, call the Poison Control Center (716) 878-7654 or 1-800-222-1222.

If you become ill or are injured after office hours or during a weekend or a holiday, your call to the office will go through our answering service. Please limit calls to emergencies or other urgent problems that cannot wait until morning.


The Catholic Health primary care centers accept most insurances, including Medicaid and Medicare.

Healthcare assistance on a sliding fee scale is available for those who are under-insured or uninsured.

Prescription Refills

Prescriptions will be refilled only during office hours because we need your chart handy to check on dosages and disease status. Plan ahead so that you do not run out of important medicines.

Please call at least 48 hours prior to your need to have a prescription refilled. Always have the phone number of your pharmacy available when you call the office.

To expedite your request, please have your pharmacy send us an e-request for a prescription refill.
