We are looking forward to seeing you for your upcoming appointment at UAMS. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, think you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19, please call the UAMS appointment center at 501-686-8000 to reschedule your appointment or ask if your appointment can be done by phone or video. Click here for more information about symptoms to look for.

For the protection of our patients and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, all patients must wear a mask at in-person appointments. Please wear a clean mask when you come to your appointment.

Remember, you must come to your visit alone. A friend or family member may come to an appointment only if the patient is under 18 years old or is not mentally or physically able to go to the appointment alone. If you need help getting to your appointment, transport staff is available. You are welcome to include a friend or family member in your appointment by phone or video chat.

Everyone who comes in to UAMS must pass a health screening before entering the building. This includes answering questions about your recent travel, possible exposure to COVID-19 and how you feel. You will also have your temperature taken. Everyone is required to wear a mask at all times.

Thank you for your cooperation.
