Exam Room

Boyd Health Services is a walk-in clinic. Patients are generally seen in order of arrival, however, patients experiencing severe, emergent, or life threatening symptoms will be evaluated upon arrival.  The order in which patients are seen is also dependent on the services requested and provider availability. A limited amount of appointment times are reserved for women's health annual exams/paps.    

You MUST show your APSU ID to be seen at Health Services. Students that are currently registered or enrolled in classes are eligible for services. Faculty and staff are also eligible for services. Spouses and dependents of faculty or staff that are not also employed at APSU are not eligible for services. ***Spouses that only need to complete the employee insurance screening and biometrics form can receive that service here.

Physician hours

Nurse practitioner hours

Because we operate on a walk-in basis, it is highly suggested that patients report to Boyd Health Services as early as possible during each set of posted office hours in order to receive a same-day visit.

Please call 931-221-7107 to schedule annual exams/paps at least one week in advance.


There is no charge to students for most office visits. Some visits, like annual exams, new contraceptive visits, and work/sports physicals are fee-based due to the time and lab testing involved.  However, patients will be charged for medications obtained through the in-house pharmacy, laboratory tests, procedures, and medical supplies necessary for treatment. These costs will be charged to your University Health Services account. Employees are charged an access fee of $15 per visit if seen in Health Services. Employees will be charged for medications, lab work, procedures, and medical supplies if applicable in the same manner as students.

Class Excuses

Medical excuses will not routinely be issued by Health Services for missed classes or examinations. Exceptions may be made for certain severe illnesses or hospitalizations. Please note that class absence policies – excused or unexcused – are at the discretion of the faculty member.
