If you have, or suspect you may have, an illness or condition that you believe requires medical attention, we recommend you call your primary care physician.

Physicians are independent contractors who are neither employees nor agents of Houston Northwest Medical Center, and as a result, Houston Northwest Medical Center is not responsible for the actions of these physicians in their medical practices.
