If you’ve already scheduled your first appointment, you should have received an invitation to sign up for the UTHealth Neurosciences Patient Portal at the email address you provided during the time of registration. This secure site is where you will input your personal information and access your medical history, so our clinicians can provide you with the best care possible.
All patients must complete the required forms by logging in to the Athena Patient Portal before their first appointment. Patients who do not complete the forms prior to their appointment may be rescheduled to avoid delays in care.

With the UTHealth Neurosciences Patient Portal, you can:

Our group includes nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical assistants, and many others who will help with your care. You will likely see multiple caregivers, and we know that you will enjoy working with everyone here.
At some clinics in our group, we may also have a resident or medical student present for patient visits. This is a part of our educational program at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, and is important to our mission of training the neuroscience specialists of the future. Please keep in mind that the involvement of trainees can enhance patient care, and it helps the teacher remain up to date.
