Mount Nittany Health is excited to introduce a new service that offers patients the option to self-schedule appointments online in their patient portal account for convenient same day care. Whether you're battling a sore throat, muscle aches, or other acute sick symptoms, our dedicated team is here to provide you with expert and timely care.

With the convenience of being able to self-schedule online, these same-day appointments are still reserved for acute injury or illness and are not intended for the treatment of chronic illnesses. There are different options for children and adults.

For Children

Acute pediatric appointments require an in-person visit and are available exclusively on the same day, ensuring your child's immediate care needs are met.

To self-schedule an acute appointment, login to your patient portal account at and choose from the available appointment times for that day. You will need to create an account if you haven’t already.

For Adults

For adults, we offer same day appointments virtually through telehealth visits using video calls. Just like an in-person visit you can:

  • See and speak with a provider
  • Discuss symptoms and concerns
  • Receive prescriptions
  • Order additional tests as needed
  • Review your medical records

Adult appointments can be conveniently scheduled a few days in advance, providing flexibility to accommodate your busy schedule. Simply log into your Mount Nittany Health portal to get started.

Telehealth visits are available to all patients whose primary care provider is a Mount Nittany Health physician. Regardless of who your primary care provider is, or which Mount Nittany Health location you normally visit, all patients can take advantage of this service and can now schedule these services on their portal. 

To schedule an acute appointment, login to your patient portal account at You will need to create an account if you haven’t already.

At Mount Nittany Health, we are committed to expanding access to healthcare and enhancing patient experience. Self-scheduling and same day appointments offer convenient options for patients to receive exceptional care without unnecessary delays or inconveniences. As always, patients can also call their primary care provider’s office to make an appointment.
