Patient Care FAQs During COVID-19


If you are scheduled for an upcoming appointment, you should receive a phone call to reschedule your appointment as a televisit via phone call and/or video. Your provider will call you and provide further instructions.

If the visit cannot be completed via a televisit, you will be directed to a specific clinic designated for the type of care you need. If you do not receive a phone call, please call (800) 917-8906 or (409) 772-2222, day or night.

We are continuing well-child check-ups on schedule for children 0-4 years old, during this critical period in their development. When we call you about your appointment, you will be directed to a specific clinic for this visit; please note that it may be a clinic other than the one you normally visit, but the location will provide the same great care you’ve come to expect for your child at UTMB Health.

An urgent care televisit is a prompt, safe, convenient health care appointment offered via the telephone and/or video chat with the same experienced UTMB Health providers who staff our clinics.

Televisits appointments are offered only when medically appropriate for your needs and focus on evaluation and treatment of minor primary care concerns, such as eye infections, earaches, rashes, insect bites and skin irritation, digestive issues, colds, and more. You may be given a prescription or referred for further treatment at the conclusion of the televisit.

UTMB Health urgent care televisits are offered daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., for both new and existing patients.

To schedule a televisit, call the UTMB Access Center Nurse Triage Line at (800) 917-8906, available 24/7. A nurse will listen to your needs and help direct you to the most appropriate care.
