How to make a Primary Care appointment 

We've changed how we schedule appointments online! We've simplified how you schedule regular Primary Care appointments online. Appointments needed in the next day or so can be scheduled online via eTang. More appointments become available online every hour; if you don't find what need, give us a call! Appointments needed for further out than the next day or so should be scheduled by calling (510) 642-2000. See our Get Healthcare page for all the details you need about how to access care at Tang.
