  • Why do some providers have no ratings?
    At UTMB, a provider's ratings are only posted when she/he has a minimum of 30 completed surveys within the past twelve months. New-to-UTMB providers or individuals in less common areas of practice may be temporarily under this threshold. We set this baseline to ensure we offer the most accurate reflection of each Individual.

    Why No Ratings?
  • Do you have any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, chills or repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain (including new onset low back pain), joint pain, extreme fatigue, diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, headache or conjunctivitis (red eye with discharge)?
