Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice

Out of consideration for the health and safety of our patients, clinical team and our community related to concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are enhancing our patient protocols and safety measures to include, but not limited to:

  • Phone screening for COVID-19 risk factors prior to scheduling an in-person appointment.
  • Identify appointments that can be scheduled as phone or video appointments.
  • Patients are asked to limit the number of caregivers to bring to in-person appointments to only those who are essential, preferably no more than one.
  • Temperature checkpoints prior to entering the patient practice.
  • Applications to participate in a clinical trial will continue to be accepted. All in-person visits for clinical trials will be scheduled at a later time

For detailed information regarding your appointment, please call our patient care practice at 210-450-9960.

For a complete list of our safety measures and timely information regarding patients appointments at the Biggs Institute’s patient practice at UT Health Physicians Medical Arts and Research Center (MARC) location, visit the UT Health Physicians coronavirus information webpage.

Advanced dementia treatment with clinical trials

Clinical trials are one of the many ways we advance research to provide tomorrow’s Alzheimer’s treatments, today. Volunteers from all health backgrounds can help bring these research discoveries into clinical practice.

Contribute to research during routine appointments

Our researchers are expanding the understanding of dementia by learning how biological and environmental factors may influence a person’s health. You can provide biological samples, like blood, for researchers to use when they need information to complete studies- helping us save resources.
