CONROE, TX – Lone Star Family Health Center is now offering virtual clinic visits for Huntsville patients by appointment only using audio and/or video functions on any phone, smartphone, tablet or personal computer. Patients are directed to call 936-521-8446 to schedule an appointment or visit www.LoneStarFamily.org and click on ‘Request an Appointment.’

Lone Star Family Health Center accepts most insurance, Medicaid CHIP and Medicare, has affordable self-pay options, and a sliding fee scale with eligibility for the underinsured throughout Montgomery County and now Huntsville.


Lone Star Family Health Center CEO Karen Harwell said, “The population in Huntsville is growing rapidly and we are taking the lead in expanding our service offerings to those who are underserved and may not have access to the insurance required by other health care facilities. During this time of COVID-19, we are encouraging virtual doctor’s visits throughout our service areas and are pleased to now offer that option to Huntsville.”

It is recommended that patients stick to a virtual visit if they are over the age of 65, have underlying health conditions such as asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, COPD, cancer or any condition that has weakened the immune system. It is also recommended to stay virtual if you have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
