Patient Information

This page is designed to assist you in providing you additional information and links to Tripler and the Internet that we feel
are a good source of information.  We will be adding form packages (physical, obstetrics, procedures, etc.) that you can
download and complete at home prior to your appointment and save time during your visit.

You can make appointments with the Family Medicine Clinic in one of two ways:

  • Routine appointments are made through the Central Appointments System by calling (808) 433-2778, or

  • TRICARE Online enables you to make an appointment with your primary care manager (PCM) online. 

Sick call is no longer available. For continuity of medical care this is now an acute appt status, Active Duty Soldiers should
call Central Appointments -- 433-2778, lines open at 0630.

You can leave telephone messages for your PCM by calling (808) 433-2778.  Here you can ask your PCM the status of a
result, renew/refill prescriptions, medical concerns, etc.  Your PCM or nurse will respond to your telephone call within 72 hours.

Tripler's Pharmacy Web site provides you with the hours of new and refill prescriptions and instructions for refilling your
medicine.  Telephoned (808) 433-6962) refill prescriptions are usually filled within 72 hours by the pharmacy, excluding holidays
and weekends.
