Department of Surgery
Welcome to the Clinical Services page of the Dept of Surgery. We have many specialty
and sub-specialty clinics available. The clinics are located on the 4th floor of the
Texas Tech Physician Medical Pavillion at 3601 Fourth Street and in the Medical Office
Plaza (MOP) on the east side of University Medical Center (UMC) on 10th and Indiana and in the Southwest Cancer Center (SWCC) on the west side of UMC.
Some things to remember before you arrive for your appointment:
- Bring your insurance card and a list of your current medications.
- Know the name of your primary care provider (PCP).
- Make sure that any referrals from your PCP have been completed.
- Payment is expected at the time of services. Most insurance companies require copays
be collected. It is up to you to know what copayment for your insurance is required.
These fees will be collected at the time of your visit. Cash, credit card or check
will be accepted. See each clinics web page for details.

or delayed by, emergencies. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
