Expanded services now available in Greater Heights
As part of the UT Physicians mission to expand specialty care outside of the Texas Medical Center, a new clinic has opened in Greater Heights that will focus on obstetrics and gynecology, gynecologic oncology and gastroenterology.
“The new location allows us to provide services that are consistent with our goal of delivering exceptional care to patients in a convenient and comfortable setting,” said Brooks D. Cash, M.D., chief of the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). “We recognize that demand for care from our world-class staff at the Texas Medical Center is high. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve patients in the Greater Heights and surrounding communities.”
Gastroenterology services are available Tuesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at 1740 West 27th, Suite 100, Houston, 77008. The clinic is located inside the Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Medical Plaza 2 building.
Board certified in gastroenterology by the American Board of Internal Medicine, Roy T. Davee, M.D., and Ali Raza, M.D., will staff the clinic. Gastroenterologists care for people with disorders of the stomach and intestines.
Along with gastroenterology, the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at McGovern Medical School will offer OB/GYN and gynecologic oncology appointments at the same location on different days. Staffed by two leaders in the field of women’s health, Concepcion R. Diaz-Arrastia, M.D., and Alexander Wainwright M.D., will provide personalized care.
“We are excited to be expanding our Heights practice with a new clinic adjacent to Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital,” said Dr. Wainwright, assistant professor at McGovern Medical School. “This clinic will allow us to better serve our community and provide comprehensive obstetric and gynecological care. We are proud to offer a variety of services, including preventive medicine, pregnancy-related care, as well as the latest advances in minimally invasive gynecological surgery.”
OB/GYN appointments will be offered on Wednesdays from 8-5 and gynecologic oncology visits are scheduled on Thursdays. Both clinics will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“We accept referrals for women with pelvic tumors, abnormal cervical cancer screens, as well as complicated benign gynecologic conditions, such as severe endometriosis among other diagnoses,” said Dr. Diaz-Arrastia, associate professor at McGovern Medical School. “Our clinic offers all new cancer patients an appointment within six days of contacting us. Additionally, our group is available for consults with referring physicians 24/7, as needed.”
