First time visitor? Stop by, walk in, or give us a call and ask how we can help. Call 207-496-3900 to schedule an appointment with one of our counselors.
Many of our services are available on a walk-in basis, free of charge and without limitation.
Appointments can be made by either visiting the Vet Center, on a walk-in basis, or calling the Vet Center.
Making an appointment:
After your initial contact with the Northern Maine Vet Center (NMVC), a Vet Center Counselor will be assigned to call you to schedule an appointment. You can expect a return call within 2 business days, and we should be able to schedule your first appointment within 10 business days, depending on schedule availabilities.
Anyone in crisis will be seen within the same day.
If you would like to schedule an appointment, you can give us a call and we will be happy to discuss a date and time that works best for you to meet with a counselor.
Cancelling or rescheduling an appointment:
If you know you will miss an appointment, please notify us as soon as possible so we can reschedule your appointment and make that time available for another Veteran.
You can call us anytime during our posted hours of operation (8:00am - 4:30pm). If you need to call outside of those times, on weekends, or holidays, you can call the NMVC number ( 207-496-3900) and you will be forwarded to the Vet Center Call Center which is available 24/7. The call center can also be reached directly at 877-927-8737.
You may also visit us at the Vet Center located at 456 York Street, Caribou Maine, 04736.
You do not need to be registered for care at VA, rated for a service-connected disability, or receiving any other form of VA benefits. On your first visit, we will look for one or more of the following:
- Discharge documents (such as a DD214)
- Receipt of certain awards
- Deployment orders
- Other documents that show qualifying military service
Request your military service records online.
If you don’t have these documents on-hand, come in and we can work with you to establish your eligibility and answer any questions you might have.
