Making an Appointment
When you become aware of any negative change in your voice (pitch, quality, endurance, etc.), schedule an appointment by calling the Texas Voice Center at Houston Methodist at (713) 796-2181. The Texas Voice Center receptionist will talk with you about your voice symptoms, schedule an appointment, and remind you to fast three hours prior to your appointment; however, you may drink water and take your medications. (If you are diabetic, please do eat something small before your appointment). The receptionist will also discuss the fee schedule and your insurance information to verify coverage before you come in.
If you are experiencing an "acute" problem, one that has persisted for 2-5 days, we will try to schedule your visit immediately. If you are scheduled for an evaluation of a chronic problem (lasting more than 3-4 weeks) and you develop an acute illness, please call us to reschedule your appointment, as the acute illness may interfere with the proper diagnosis of the underlying chronic condition.
Please print out and complete the forms (links below), and email them to Sandra Guerra or fax them to 713-796-2349. If you are unable to print these forms, please contact the receptionist and she will mail you the necessary forms.
If you are coming in for surgery, please fill out and read over the Pre-Operative Instructions sheets which include all Medications to avoid.
Please enroll and login to Houston Methodist MyChart to request records and to enable secure electronic communication with the office. If you need help registering, please call the office for help . Regrettably, you are unable to complete your new patient forms through the patient portal at this time.
Once you have completed the paperwork for your appointment, please email them to Sandra Guerra or fax them to 713-796-2349.
