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.
About Head and Neck Cancer Clinic
If you suspect that you have a head or neck tumor or have been diagnosed, our Head and Neck Cancer Clinic is here to help you.
Our clinic provides the most advanced treatment with state-of-the-art equipment for all types of malignant and benign tumors of the head and neck, including:
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Vascular malformations
- Salivary gland tumors
- Skull base tumors
Doctors in the Head and Neck Oncology Clinic work closely with our other cancer specialists, such as radiation oncologists and medical oncologists, to decide the best treatment plan available for you. Should you require reconstructive surgery, a surgeon with extensive reconstruction experience is available to see you in the same building as our clinic.
This multidisciplinary approach to health care is the standard for clinics in the UAMS Cancer Institute and not only offers comprehensive care but also reduces the number of clinic visits required.
Depending on your condition, you may be eligible to participate in clinical trials offering new and innovative treatment not available elsewhere in Arkansas.
