The new, four-story clinic will be located at 13105 Wortham Center Drive, Houston, Texas 77065 in the heart of Cy-Fair ISD. The $28 million clinic will improve patient experience and convenience, expanding the current services offerings in the ever-expanding Cypress community and surrounding area. “Anyone who lives or works off Highway 290 knows this area has been and is booming. Where individuals and families work and live, there will always be a need for medical services,” said Cecilia Fowler, Director of Ambulatory Care, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. “Our new, standalone clinic will offer residents in the area expanded services, including more specialties and additional diagnostic capabilities.” The new four-story Cypress Clinic will more than triple its square footage from 28,000 to 72,000 square feet, with room for up to 35 physicians. On opening day, patients will have access to physicians specializing in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, OB/GYN, Gastroenterology, Optometry, Podiatry, and Orthopedics, with plans to add additional specialties like Cardiology, Neurology, Pulmonary, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, ENT, and Audiology, just to name a few. The new clinic will also offer patients expanded medical and diagnostic testing to include radiology (CT/MRI), ultrasound, 3D mammography, bone density, and laboratory services. Patients will continue to have the convenience of an on-site pharmacy to fill prescriptions. “We have all seen the radical transformation the Copperfield/Cypress area has undergone in the 25 years since we first opened our clinic here,” said Carminia Davidsohn, M.D., Managing Physician at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Cypress. “Our new clinic will help us improve access, bringing new specialties and services to new and current patients in the Cypress area.
