The University of North Texas Health Science Center announces the move of its Azle Clinic. The new clinic location will host an open house Dec. 10 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

“Our commitment to the Azle community continues as we move to our new facility, allowing our doctors to practice the same quality health care in a more comfortable setting,” said Ronald Blanck, DO, president of the health science center.

The Azle Clinic moved to its new location at 909 S.E. Parkway, Suite 101, Aug. 1. The new location, which is near Harris Methodist Hospital Northwest, has allowed for an agreement between the health science center and Harris Methodist Hospital Northwest, whereby members of the health science center’s surgery department cover Harris’ emergency room.

The Azle Clinic is staffed by members of the health science center’s departments of surgery and internal medicine. Physicians who practice at the clinic are Sam Buchanan, DO, general surgeon and chairman of the department of surgery; Adriane Martin, DO, general surgeon; Burke DeLange, DO, vascular surgeon; David Rittenhouse, DO, urological surgeon; Adam Smith, DO, bariatric surgeon; and Shahid Aziz, DO, gastroenterologist.

The health science center leases the new building from Texas Health Resources. The newly-renovated 1,868 square-foot office space has three exam rooms, staff physician offices and a large waiting area for patients.

Doctors at the clinic began seeing patients at the new site Aug. 1.

Marc B. Hahn, DO, dean of the health science center’s Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, said the Azle Clinic will also be a clinical rotation site for medical students and students enrolled in TCOM’s physician assistant studies program.

The clinic is one of eight clinics operated by the UNT Health Science Center’s Physicians Group.
