  • 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)?

    Please do not proceed with scheduling this appointment, instead call us at (800) 917-8906
    so we can personalize your care.

    A subspecialty of cardiology, heart failure focuses on the heart’s decreased ability to pump blood to the rest of the body.

    If you have not been diagnosed with heart failure, please make an appointment with our general cardiologists, and, if needed, they can refer you for the appropriate specialized treatment.
