Patient Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
UANT has office locations throughout the DFW Metroplex. Please contact our office at 817-784-8268 for detail directions to a specific office. Additional information on office locations is listed under "Patient Information".
How do I make an appointment?
Appointments can be made via telephone, on our website here or in person. Please have your insurance information available to give to the receptionist if you call. If you are currently covered under a managed care plan, we can schedule your appointment more efficiently if you provide us with a physician referral number. (You will need to contact your primary care physician and ask for a referral in advance.) If for some reason the physician that you requested to see is not available, we will try to accommodate your request at the earliest time available or schedule you with another physician.
How do I obtain a refill of my prescriptions?
Please contact our switchboard at 817-871-8268 if you would like a refill on your prescription. Please allow 24 hours for our office to fulfill a prescription request.
What are your office hours?
UANT's clinic hours are between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday-Friday. While most of UANT's offices are open each weekday, some offices might not have a physician in the office each day and others might close between 12:00 and 1:00pm for the lunch hour. Our switchboard is open from 8:30am to 5:00pm each weekday and representatives are available to answer questions about any of UANT's offices.
What do I need to bring on my first visit?
You must have your insurance card and driver's license and be prepared to pay your co-payment. In addition, please bring any of the following items, if available:

- Recent blood work, including PSA results

What are my treatment options for stone removal?
Various treatment options exist for removal of stones. A consultation with our urologists is the best way to determine which treatment plan works best for your situation.
How long is my first appointment expected to take?
Your initial consultation may take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the nature of your urologic concern. There is always a chance that your doctor may have been called over to the hospital for an emergency. If this happens and we see that you may have an extended wait, we will offer you the option to wait or reschedule.
