Beth Israel Deaconess - Plymouth has a central scheduling system in place to make it convenient for patients to make appointments for various outpatient testing and diagnostic services. Here is how it works.
For all non-emergency tests, your doctor’s office will fax or call an order into the hospital and you will receive a card with one telephone number and the hours to call. Several schedulers are on hand at the hospital to take your call. Please have your insurance card ready.
Telephone: 508-830-APPT (2778)
Hours: Monday – Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
When you call the appointment line, the scheduler can coordinate all necessary non-emergency appointments. The scheduler will also make sure you are informed of any preparation necessary before the test, whether or not there is a separate time for arrival and testing, verify insurance information and answer any questions. Urgent tests are scheduled immediately between the physician office and the specific hospital department.
This is an excellent system if you require an appointment for various diagnostic imaging tests such as mammography, bone densitometry, ultrasound, CT (computed tomography) scan, MRI(Magnetic Resonance Imaging)/MRA(Magnetic Resonance Angiography) and nuclear medicine. Parking in front of the main entrance is available.
