Medical Clinic of Houston, L.L.P. was founded in 1968 by the merger of two practices, comprised of nine physicians. As the original practices grew, physicians and specialized services were added to our facilities resulting in today's medical complex. The Clinic specializes in Internal Medicine and also offers the following various sub-specialties: Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Rheumatology and Medical Oncology as well as Diabetes and Nutrition Education. Our goal is to provide excellent medical care in a caring and service-oriented environment while utilizing the latest medical technology.

After Hours Care
Patients needing urgent medical care when the Clinic is closed may reach their physician (or the physician designated to take his/her calls) by dialing the main Clinic telephone number, (713) 526-5511. The Clinic's answering service will contact the physician on call. When calling after hours, have your pharmacist's telephone number available and remove any incoming call blocks from your phone line so that phone calls can be received.
Prior to your first appointment, we will attempt to reach you by phone for registration. If registration by phone is inconvenient or we have not been able to contact you in advance, please arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment so that this process can be finalized before your appointment time.
Reminder: Bring your insurance card with you to your first appointment and whenever your coverage changes.
Patients should contact their pharmacy with prescription refill requests, instructing their pharmacy to electronically submit refill requests to the Clinic.
