Appointments and Registration

How do I make an appointment with my primary care provider?

We offer three convenient choices to make an appointment:

We can treat some medical problems in-person without an appointment, over the phone, or via virtual visit. Learn more at How to Get The Right Care.

How do I choose a new primary care provider?

Follow the easy instructions for choosing a new provider.

How do I register for my primary care appointment at the medical center?

When you arrive at Cheshire, go directly to Family Medicine on Level 2A North via the central elevator or staircase. Bring the following:

  • A photo ID (any identification with your picture will do).
  • Your insurance card if you have one.

If your doctor has scheduled you for a blood draw or other lab test, go directly to that lab, off the main lobby.

How do I make an appointment to see a specialist?

Your primary care provider will refer you to a specialist. The office of that specialist will contact you to set up your appointment. To see a list of our department teams, services and each department’s direct contact information, visit Departments and Services.

How do I register for my specialist appointment at the Medical Center?

First, check the Appointments and Referrals page for the department or specialist you are visiting. Registration information for each department is located on these pages. 

Central registration is on the left as you walk through the Medical Center's main entrance.

You will be asked for a picture ID and your health insurance card. You will also be asked to verify your home address, phone number, and emergency contact information.

How do I register for surgery or outpatient procedures?

Enter through the hospital’s main entrance. Go to the offices located beyond the first door on your left.

You will be asked for a picture ID and your health insurance card. You will also be asked to verify your home address, phone number, and emergency contact information.

What do I do if I don’t know where to go to register?

If you need assistance in finding anything in the hospital, you can ask at the registration desk to the left of the main entrance. You can also inquire at the volunteer desk in the main lobby.

How do I pay for my appointment?

You can pay at the time of registration. You can also make a payment through Cheshire’s patient portal, myD-H. To access the services available through the patient portal, you’ll need to create an account by following the steps on the website.

If you are concerned about payment options, Cheshire Medical Center offers financial assistance (throuigh Dartmouth-Htichcock Health) to qualified patients. Cheshire will also work to develop a payment plan that can best meet your needs.

What if I need an interpreter?

When you make your appointment, tell the nurse or clerk that you need translator or interpreter services. For more information, see the Interpreter Services and Accessibility page.
