Appointments

Local Patient Access Data

Regularly updated patient access data is available for all VA Medical Centers and Community-Based Outpatient Clinics including average wait times, number of patients waiting for a scheduled appointment and number of patients that cannot be scheduled for an appointment in 90 days or less. To view this data, go to http://www.va.gov/health/access-audit.asp.

At VA Long Beach, we have established a number of procedures to assist you in getting an appointment without a long delay. Our goals are simple —

  • you should be able to see your primary care provider within one to two business days
  • you should have faster access to speciality care

If you have received a postcard stating that you need to make an appointment, please call the Medical Center at 562-826-8000 and press 2.
