Your appointment

A first appointment

You cannot make a first appointment with us yourself. For a first visit to an Erasmus MC outpatient clinic, you always need a referral.

Erasmus MC automatically receives a digital referral letter from your general practitioner or other medical specialist. You will then receive information from us by phone, mail or digitally (e-mail) about the appointment.

The Oral Surgery outpatient clinic  is an exception

The Oral Surgery outpatient clinic uses an appointment form for new patients on their web page (All Dutch only). Here you can make your own first appointment. You will receive information about follow-up appointments by e-mail. Follow-up appointments at the outpatient clinic for oral surgery can only be changed by telephone via +31 10 704 01 27.

Costs

Is this your first visit to our hospital? Please ask your health insurance company what the relevant requirements are for reimbursement. Otherwise you might have to pay (part of) the costs of your treatment yourself. Read more about the reimbursement of treatments in Erasmus MC.

A follow-up appointment

Follow-up appointments within 3 months of your last appointment are often made directly after your appointment at the outpatient clinic desk. For follow-up appointments after these three months, you will receive an appointment proposal at home via e-mail or by mail.

The Oral Surgery outpatient clinic is an exception

At the Outpatient Clinic for Oral Surgery (website is Dutch only), you will be sent information about your follow-up appointment by e-mail and you can change an appointment by telephone (+31 10 704 01 27). You can make your first appointment at the outpatient clinic of Oral Surgery via the appointment form of Oral Surgery (Dutch only).
