Getting an appointment with us is easy. You can request an appointment directly, with no physician referral, through our patient access specialists. There are two ways to reach a specialist:
- By phone at 713-792-5410 or 888-543-2435
- Online through the myMDAnderson self-referral form. Parents who complete this form will be contacted by a patient access specialist within 48 hours.
Whether you contact us online or by phone, your patient access specialist will help set up your child’s appointment. This includes assisting with registration, collecting demographic information and medical records and scheduling new patient appointments.
