We ask that you call our office first to determine what precautions to take to ensure you are treated correctly, and with the utmost safety to yourself and others. We do have protocols in place to ensure the safety of all patients and staff.
We ask that you call our office to get tested if you have the following symptoms:

- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
Call us immediately if you have the symptoms above and meet the criteria below:

Please be patient as we are in daily communication with the CDC and the Texas Department of Health and protocols, for testing and treatment may change as this current crisis unfolds.
