Skip the appointment line with our new service

Jul 26, 2023

If your next doctor’s appointment is scheduled further out than you’d like, Kaiser Permanente now offers a new option that might get you into your physician’s office a bit sooner.

Now you can use our automated wait list to get an earlier appointment if one becomes available. This option can get you in to see your doctor an average of 21 days sooner, and the new appointment will be for the same service and the same clinician as initially booked.

Getting started is easy:

  1. Go to or the Kaiser Permanente app1 to schedule your appointment as you normally would.
  2. Select “Join for sooner appointment and be notified if earlier appointments become available.”
  3. Click “Schedule it.”
  4. If an earlier appointment becomes available, you’ll receive a text and email with instructions on how to select the earlier appointment.

NOTE: Most sooner appointments are only available for appointments that have been scheduled at least 3 days in advance.
