The Community Medical Center now offers virtual visits! 

To set up an appointment, please call 315.364.3273 or 315.364.3388. 

All visits are by appointment, unless of course there is an emergency. When calling for an appointment please identify yourself as a Wells College student and explain the reason for the visit. If you are extremely sick, please express urgency when scheduling your appointment.

The Medical Center will try their best to work around your class schedules, but understand that there may be times when we have no other time available than during a class time. The office can also complete video visits by appointment.

If you are unable to keep your appointment please call the office and cancel. It is also important to bring your student ID and health insurance information to your appointment.


The Community Medical Center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 pm; it is closed on Saturday and Sunday. You can also reach our after-hours answering service at 888.586.8342; if you have a medical emergency during the time that the Medical Center is closed, please contact Campus Safety at 315.364.3229 and an officer will assist you.
