For your safety and the safety of all our patients and employees, during the coronavirus outbreak visitors are restricted in our hospitals and clinics, with the limited exceptions of necessary caregivers. See inpatient and outpatient visitor guidelines here.
Masking Policy and Screening for Fever
UAB Medicine is screening all patients, visitors, and employees at all entrances for fever. Also, all employees, patients, and visitors are required to wear a mask or face covering inside and outside all UAB Medicine facilities. We ask that patients and visitors arrive wearing their own mask.

eMedicine and Urgent Care
If you’re suffering from a minor ailment, you can skip a trip to the doctor’s office by using our new e-Medicine service. Five minutes online gets you a diagnosis usually within one hour, plus a prescription if needed. If you prefer a face-to-face appointment, UAB’s Urgent Care Clinic downtown offers walk-in hours for adults seven days a week.
