User avatar Hi wilsonj,
Here is a website for the Texas Department of State Health Services.
http://www.dshs.state.tx.us.
Scroll down to Health Service Regions located on the left of the page.
Click on it and it will take you to a Health Service Region 1 - 11 for you to choose from. Each region includes the area, website, and telephone number for you to inquire about what services that are provided. I hope you find this information helpful and thank you for using https://www.doctorslounge.com
Sincerely,
Rntdj

And if it's any comfort to your pocket book. Thyroid medication is one of the cheapest group of drugs out there. Mine is always under twenty dollars a month. Go get tested.
