New patients are welcome to visit High Rock Internal Medicine for a walk-in appointment, and in most cases, new patients are eligible for same-day treatment.

Are walk-in appointments available for physical exams?
Walk-in and same-day appointments are available for routine physicals and checkups, including well woman exams.
If you need a Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exam to apply for or maintain a commercial driver’s license (CDL), it’s a good idea to call High Rock Internal Medicine before you come into the office. A CDL exam requires a medical provider who is registered with the DOT to certify the results of your physical. Several of the providers at High Rock Internal Medicine are qualified to perform CDL exams, so there’s a good chance that the office will be able to accommodate a same-day appointment for a DOT physical.
To schedule a same-day appointment for routine or urgent care, call the office at High Rock Internal Medicine today, or book online.
