Patient Referral for Health Professionals

Refer a Patient to UTMB Health

Providing patients with the best care requires collaboration with the entire care team – both inside and outside of UTMB Health. To ensure that referring physicians get timely information and relevant communication regarding their patients, we have multiple ways to refer and follow patients.
