Transcript Health Center $ivw $s your tHedtk? If you don't know the answer to that question, if you haven't been feeling well, or if you just want a regular checkup, then the University of Houston's Health Center is waiting for you. Without student insurance, any student can receive a primary care office visit for $15.00. At that point, the student would be seen by one of three in-house doctors. Board certified and licensed nurses evaluate patients, take x- rays, and also administer testing. In addition to primary care office visits, students visited the Health Center for various other reasons. Students visited the Dermatology Clinic, headed up by Dr. Philip Cohen, to get advice on their hair, nails, and skin. That visit was $25.00. Compared to Dermatologist visits elsewhere, UH Health Center prices were extremely cost-efficient. "We keep our costs at a minimum for students," stated chief nurse, Pamella A. Hoffmeister, RN. Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Michael Monmouth, practiced at the UH Health Center one day a week.
