What patients and caregivers need to know before they arrive for their appointment
You will be contacted by phone PRIOR to your appointment by our staff and screened for any symptoms, travel history, contact history.
We are open for patient care but if you have fever, cough, runny nose or shortness of breath, or have a positive travel history, or contact history call us BEFORE your appointment at 713-464-9559. Your doctor will be notified and you will be contacted prior to being cleared to come the Clinic.
Houston Cancer Institute is in addition screening patients and visitors for symptoms at all our locations.
In addition, to help keep our patients safe and lower the risk of transmission of COVID-19, we are limiting patients to have one adult (18+) at each visit. Visitors must also complete screening questionnaire and must not have any respiratory viral symptoms, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath or diarrhea, recent history of local or international air travel, cruise or history of contact with known or suspected COVID-19 positive patient.
Each case will be reviewed by the physician prior to patient being admitted to our Clinics. We will make every effort to expedite this process and we apologize for any delay this may cause.
Unless absolutely necessary a visitor with patient may be encouraged to wait outside the Clinic to minimize risk to our patients.
We appreciate your patience as we implement these guidelines.
We appreciate the cooperation of our patients and their loved ones, and we thank them for their support as we take these necessary steps to protect our cancer patients.
