If you are in need of urgent or emergency care call 911 or go to your nearest emergency department at your local hospital.
If you have fever, cough or shortness of breath, do not come to UAMS or any other doctor’s office, urgent care clinic or emergency room without first calling and getting instructions.
If someone needs urgent medical care and could have been exposed to COVID-19, tell the operator when you call 911.
Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Due to an increase in COVID-19 patients in Arkansas and across the country, UAMS is implementing new visiting policies for our clinics. Effective March 20, 2020, patients must come to their visit alone, unless there are special needs such as:
- Patients undergoing a procedure that requires a driver
- Minor patients
- Patients in a wheelchair who need assistance
Visitors must be 18 or older and pass a health screening before entering a UAMS building.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our clinic will be temporarily closed beginning on April 20, 2020.
In an effort to keep our patients and health care workers safe, we are offering virtual visits and phone visits for new and existing patients.
Patients requiring urgent in-person visits will be seen by specialty providers in the Internal Medicine Clinic.
About Endocrinology Clinic
The Endocrinology Clinic specializes in the multidisciplinary care of diabetic patients and gives special attention to preventing complications of diabetes, allowing those with diabetes to live their best lives possible. Our mission is to achieve excellence in clinical outcomes and patient experience through comprehensive, collaborative care.
Our staff and providers work with our other subspecialists in ophthalmology (eye care), nephrology (kidney care) and podiatry (foot care) to address and prevent complications. We focus on reducing risks of heart disease, heart failure, stroke, and other cardiovascular complications of diabetes by managing blood pressure, cholesterol, and working with colleagues in cardiovascular medicine. We also train physician residents in internal medicine and endocrinology fellows at UAMS.
Diabetes Patient Education
Patient education and support are fundamental to our practice. We help teach and encourage patients to review their own blood sugar readings and patterns on a regular basis and collaborate with us when making medication adjustments. Our clinic is supported by a full-time diabetes educator and dietician who is available to assist with teaching new medications, assistance with insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors, and navigating challenges with insurance coverage/reimbursement.
Our clinic also offers a diabetes information line for patients to contact members of the team with questions or concerns.
How do I request a prescription refill or contact a nurse from the clinic?
To refill a prescription, please ask your pharmacy to send an electronic request to our clinic. If you originally filled your prescription at the UAMS Outpatient Pharmacy, you can also refill your prescription online using MyChart.
To speak to a nurse, call the clinic at (501) 214-2400.
If you would like to send us glucose log sheets, send them via fax or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To send a message to the provider via our nursing pool, you can log in to your MyChart account. You can also attach files or glucose logs that are scanned in using this method.

Appointments with the Diabetes (Endocrine) Clinic are by referral only. Please contact your primary care doctor or visit one of our doctors in the Center for Primary Care to obtain a referral.
We know that many patients take time out of work or time away from family and drive long distances to come to our clinic. Our goal is to respect your time and give you the most valuable clinic experience possible. This starts with minimizing your wait time and maximizing face-to-face time with our providers. You can help by arriving and checking in 15 minutes before your scheduled visit time.
What to Bring to Your Appointment
For your first appointment, please bring a photo ID and your insurance card along with a list of any medications you’re taking, including over-the-counter medications. You should also bring any medical records you can provide, including slides or test results from other clinics.
For future appointments, please provide updated medical and insurance information.
Please think in advance of 1-2 top concerns that you have and bring them up right away so that the staff and physicians are aware of your priorities for the visit. We may not get to everything if you have a very long list, but we want to be sure to take care of the top concerns and handle the others at the next visit or between visits via MyChart.
Important note: You should bring your blood glucose logbook, blood glucose meter, continuous glucose monitor and/or insulin pump to every visit so that this information can be discussed and reviewed to help make the best changes. We have a saying, “Not bringing your glucose data to the endocrinologist is like seeing a pediatrician and forgetting to bring your child.”
UAMS MyChart is a patient portal that gives you free, secure 24-hour online access to your health information. You can see your lab and test results, send messages to your doctor, make appointments, refill prescriptions and pay your bills. Ask your clinic staff or hospital nurse how to sign up for UAMS MyChart.
