About This Clinic
UT Health Austin’s Gastroenterology Clinic diagnoses, treats, and manages disorders of the liver and digestive system in adult patients (18 years and older). We work with you to come up with the best solution for your condition.
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, often during the same appointment, to avoid having to schedule multiple appointments with providers at locations all over the city. The Gastroenterology Clinic care team includes gastroenterology specialists, family nurse practitioners, social workers, dietitians, and more who work together to help you get back to the things in your life that matter most to you.
We also collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin to utilize the latest research and treatment techniques, allowing us to provide a full range of diagnostic and treatment options for your care. Imaging and lab testing are also available on site if needed.
Once our clinic receives a referral from your referring provider, members of the Gastroenterology 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 Gastroenterology 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.
