Walk-ins also are always welcome at MaineGeneral Express Care.
How Does Save My Spot Work?
Click on the Save My Spot button above to see the wait times and save your spot at one of the MaineGeneral Express Care locations.
You’ll be asked if you’ve been to MaineGeneral for health care services before. If you have, please enter your information on the next page. Your name should be your legal first and last name, and the other information as it appears on your medical records with MaineGeneral.
If a match to your information is not found, then you will see a message to call a number for assistance.
If you are a parent or caregiver of a patient you want to save a spot for, please enter the patient's information, not your own.
If you have not been a patient of MaineGeneral in the past, you will be asked to give information to create a new record before you can save your spot.
The list of MaineGeneral Express Care locations will be in a box on the left-hand pane of the screen. Here you can see the wait times at each of the three locations.
You can choose the first available time by clicking on “Save My Spot” for the location you want to be seen. You may also choose a later time that day that works for you by clicking on "View More Appointments." Fill out the form and pick your time.
NOTE: This time is the estimated time you will be seen. A high volume of patients or having a large percent of patients who are very ill or injured at the location may impact your time to be seen.
Will I get a confirmation and a reminder of my time?
Yes. Once you have successfully picked your time, you will get a confirmation on the screen.
You also will receive a text confirmation.
The system wouldn’t give me a spot. What can I do?
If you have a problem with the system or a question about it, call MaineGeneral's Pre-Arrival Unit during regular business hours at 207-626-1050.
Should you go to Express Care or the Emergency Department?
