UNT HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER OPENS PATIENT CARE CLINIC IN AZLE

April 19, 2000

FORT WORTH – Texas â?? The University of North Texas Health Science Centerâ??s Physicians & Surgeons Medical Group has opened a patient care clinic in Azle, located at 232 Park Place.

The following board-certified physicians â?? Dr. Burke DeLange, general and vascular surgeon, Dr. Adam B. Smith, general surgeon and Dr. Shahid Aziz, gastroenterologist â?? will be on staff at the health science center Azle Clinic, seeing patients by appointment only.

According to Dr. Sam Buchanan, chief of the department of surgery at the UNT Health Science Center, an increasing patient base from Azle supported the need for such a clinic.â??Many of our patients are coming from Azle, so our clinic services can be closer to home, adding to the clinicâ??s accessibility and convenience,â? said Dr. Buchanan.

Doctors at the UNT Health Science Center Azle Clinic will work closely with Harris Methodist Northwest Hospital for referring patients who need additional care not available in a clinic setting. Dr. Aziz has been providing patient care services in the Azle community since 1992.

â??We will continue to explore other medical needs of the Azle community which may increase the demand to bring other specialty physicians from the UNT Health Science Center to this clinic,â? said Dr. Buchanan.

To contact the UNT Health Science Center Azle Clinic, call (817) 270-5511 or (817) 735-2518 for surgery appointments or (817) 270-5510 or (817) 735-2660 for internal medicine.
