Collaboration with Referring Physicians

Physicians at UTHealth Houston Neurosciences engage referring physicians in the care of their patients, keeping them informed throughout the evaluation and treatment process. After treatment, referring physicians receive a summary and a plan for follow-up. We encourage continued communication about each patient.
