Infectious Disease Clinic

About This Clinic

UT Health Austin’s Infectious Disease Clinic diagnoses, treats, and manages complex infectious diseases in adult patients (18 years and older). We work in collaboration with your referring provider to deliver thorough consultation for the diagnostic evaluation and management of complicated infectious diseases.

Treatment Approach

At UT Health Austin, we take a multidisciplinary approach to your care. This means you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines caring for you in one place to avoid having to schedule multiple appointments with providers at locations all over the city. The Infectious Disease Clinic care team includes infectious disease specialists, dietitians, social workers, and more, who work together to help you get back to the things in your life that matter most to you.

We collaborate with our colleagues at The University of Texas at Austin and the Dell Medical School to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to provide comprehensive consultations on a wide range of infectious diseases. We provide comprehensive care for HIV positive patients, closely monitor patients discharged on home intravenous antibiotic therapy, and offer continuity of care for patients seen by the inpatient consultative service. Advanced imaging and lab testing are also available on-site if needed.

Appointment Information

Once our clinic receives a referral from your referring provider, members of the Infectious Disease Clinic care team will identify any existing records of treatment in the UT Health Austin System and communicate with your referring provider to obtain needed medical records and other information. If you have received medical treatment from a provider other than your referring provider, your care team will contact you to receive a written Authorization to Receive Medical Records from your other provider(s). The Infectious Disease Clinic generally will not schedule your initial appointment until it has received all relevant records. Once all records have been received and reviewed, the UTHA Access Center will contact you to schedule your initial appointment.
