As you enter Texas MedClinic, please CHECK IN AT THE KIOSK.
- Shortness Of Breath
- Chest Pain
- Excessive Bleeding
- Severe Headache
- Eye Injury
If you have any of the above, we will assess appropriate vital signs. Those who are stable will be asked to return to their cars.
If you are NOT experiencing any of the above, we will ask you to wait in your car without taking vital signs at this point. We will text you to enter the clinic when a room is ready, and as we approach your expected time to be seen.
These steps are being taken to reduce risk to you, other patients, and staff.
If you do not have a mobile device, please sign in on the tablet at the check-in kiosk AND notify the front desk of the make and color of your car/truck. We will alert you when it is your turn to start the registration process.
If you have already checked-in for a visit online, please sign in on the tablet at the kiosk just inside the front door, which indicates you have arrived. At the time you checked-in online you should have received a text linking to a health questionnaire. You may 1) complete it in your car on your mobile device; or 2) complete it on our tablet once you are placed in a room.
If you have not already checked in online, please do so now at the kiosk. By providing your cell phone number, you will receive a link to the health questionnaire which you May 1) complete in your car on your mobile device; or 2) complete on our tablet once you are placed in a room.
I realize this is a frustrating process during a time of great concern and anxiety. Texas MedClinic is prepared for the long haul. We want to be here for the entire term of this pandemic. Please help keep our staff safe and minimize the risk to fellow patients by following these instructions.
