Before Coming to 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, call the UAMS appointment center at (501) 686-8000 to reschedule your appointment. You may also ask if your appointment can be done by phone or video.
Patients who have had a COVID-19 infection may have in-person appointments at UAMS 21 days after infection or a positive COVID test, as long as your symptoms are improving. Please call the clinic where your appointment is scheduled if you have any questions about coming for an in-person visit. You may be able to have an appointment by phone or video while you are waiting for clearance for an in-person visit.
What to Expect at Your Appointment
UAMS has safety measures in place to protect our patients and employees. Everyone who comes to UAMS is required to wear a mask and pass a health screening before entering the building. You will also have your temperature taken. Please wear a clean mask to your clinic visit, and do not remove it until asked to do so by a UAMS employee.
Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Beginning March 3, 2021, one person may come to your appointment with you. You may also include a friend or family member in your appointment by phone or video chat.
If you need a wheelchair from your car to your appointment, transport staff may be available at the main UAMS campus. Contact your clinic for more information.
Please visit our COVID-19 resources to learn more about what to expect at your appointment.
About Interventional Psychiatry Program
The Interventional Psychiatry Program uses evidence-based treatments that can provide remarkable results. Some of the methods used by our interventional psychiatry staff are relatively new, while others have been approved for use for many years. All are effective in treating mental illnesses that have not improved with the use of antidepressants or psychotherapy.
Interventional psychiatry is a rapidly growing sub-specialty in the field of psychiatry. One component of interventional psychiatry at UAMS is the use of neuromodulation, or brain stimulation, which involves electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to address issues such as depression and obsessive compulsive disorder.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of patients from Arkansas and surrounding states are dealing with mental health problems that could be reduced or even resolved through interventional psychiatry measures.
These services could be the answer to those with long-term depression and other mental health problems that have not improved through the use of medication or psychotherapy.
To find out more about the Interventional Psychiatry Program, call our number listed above. The program will accept referrals from a patient’s current psychiatrist by faxing a recent history to the attention of Ken Hall.
