About This Clinic
UT Health Austin’s Rheumatology Clinic diagnoses, treats, and manages rheumatic diseases that affect the joints, muscles, bones, skin, and internal organs in adult patients (18 years and older). Rheumatology encompasses a variety of complicated and multi-system conditions that are autoimmune or inflammatory in nature, which is why we are ready to listen to you to better understand your needs and develop a personalized treatment plan that will improve your overall quality of life.
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 Rheumatology Clinic care team includes rheumatology specialists, physical therapists, 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 and treatment techniques, allowing us to provide you with the best care, treatment, and recovery. Imaging and lab testing are also available on-site if needed.
Once our clinic receives a referral from your referring provider, members of the Rheumatology 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 Rheumatology 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.
