Please ensure that your referring physician has provided us with all the pertinent medical records prior to your scheduled appointment or else you may be asked to reschedule. Fax records to 512-472-2928.
Children’s Urology abides by federal HIPAA guidelines, in that all patient care information is strictly confidential and will not be released to any person or organization without the consent of the patient or the patient’s legally authorized representative (unless authorized by law).

- Address of person to whom information is to be disclosed
