Limiting visitor access to clinics

Written By: Melissa McDonald, UT Physicians | Updated: March 25, 2020

The current pandemic involving COVID-19 is quickly changing—which means procedures involving UT Physicians clinics are evolving with it.

In an effort to “flatten the curve” and protect our most vulnerable patients, the following protocols are now in place for all of our clinics, effective March 26.

For adult patient visits:

We ask that individuals 18 years or older do not bring any minors or additional guests with them to their appointments. There are exceptions to this protocol; if the patient has mobility or neurological challenges, one adult may accompany the patient.

For pediatric patient visits:

For appointments involving children (under 18 years of age), the pediatric patient may only be accompanied by one parent/guardian. No siblings are permitted.

We ask for your patience and understanding while we navigate this situation. Our mission is to protect patients, employees, and visitors while providing a high level of care during this crisis.

As the clinical practice of McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston, UT Physicians has locations across the Greater Houston area to serve the community. To schedule an appointment, call 888-4UT-DOCS.
