Patients from across the country, and particularly North Texas, can use the specialty services at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Our physicians offer consultations and treatment in more than 80 areas of medical specialization.

UT Southwestern physicians work collaboratively with the referring physician and ensure a smooth transition back to the referring physician’s practice when appropriate.

Our staff will assist with the secure and timely transfer of medical records and test results to UT Southwestern offices and will provide quality care for patients in a manner consistent with the referring physician’s practice.
