Frequently Asked Questions

Emergency information

If you are an emergency case requiring immediate attention, please call (713) 335-5697. We will give you instructions and directions.

What can I expect at an appointment?

When you arrive at the Burzynski Clinic, the staff will greet you and seat you in the waiting room.

What happens if I am a new patient?

You may have referred yourself, have been referred by another specialist or by Medical Insurance. We will discuss your problem and ask about your medical history. A thorough examination will then follow. We may request examinations and tests to assist and support our diagnosis.

X-rays Scans, blood / urine analysis, ultrasonography, MRI Scans, endoscopy can all be performed with no delay. If you have previous examinations and tests related to your current condition, please bring those along to the consultation. Also bring any copies of letters from other doctors or recent medication. It will help us to help you.

We will discuss with you the results of your examinations and we will recommend the proper treatment. Some conditions may be faced immediately by conservative or surgical treatment. In case you need surgery requiring general anesthesia, we arrange routine or urgent transfer by quick boat, state or private air ambulance to Athens or to your preferred destination (subject to stable medical condition). In special cases a patient can be escorted.

Otherwise, depending on the results of your examinations, the nature of the medical problem and your holiday plan, we will discharge you from our clinic, refer you on to another health professional or book you for surgery. If follow-up consultation or further consultations are required, we will indicate this and the staff will let you know the date and time of your next appointment.
