Safely caring for our patients

Rest assured, your safety is a top priority. And making an appointment with our physicians today is the best way to maintain your health and prevent minor conditions from becoming major ones.

Throughout these uncertain times, UT Health Physicians has remained open for care and true to its promise of making lives better. We welcome new patients seeking the same level of care that is making us the provider of choice for Central and South Texas.

Safety first is our guiding principle. Your visit with our physicians and staff will be conducted with every precaution in place. We have followed closely new developments and listened carefully to guidelines from the CDC. Our own infectious disease specialists have advised our local governments.

We have taken every precaution recommended by the CDC and other experts to lower the risk of transmitting COVID-19. 

  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are distributed throughout our facilities.
  • All surfaces, both in common areas and exam/procedure rooms, are regularly disinfected
  • With the option of using smart devices, such as your cell phone, to check-in and pay bills, the time the patient spends inside the office is further decreased.

Important to know before your appointment

  • If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, call to your doctor’s office before arriving at your appointment.
  • Concerned patients may contact their care team using their MyChart account or by calling their doctor's office directly.

We rely on information provided by the CDCWHO, the U.S. State Department, state and local health departments, and our own public health experts to guide decisions concerning our operations and maintaining a safe environment for our patients.
