Collaboration with Referring Physicians
Physicians affiliated with UTHealth Houston Neurosciences engage referring physicians in the care of their patients, keeping them informed about patient progress throughout the evaluation and treatment process. After a patient’s treatment, referring physicians receive a summary and a plan for follow-up care. Our providers encourage continued communication about each patient.
