About Texas Transplant Specialists

Important Information


Dr. Michael Eckrich will be departing Texas Transplant Specialists / Sarah Cannon, effective September 30, 2021. The Sarah Cannon Pediatric Transplant & Cellular Therapy Program at Methodist Children’s Hospital is still here to serve you under the continued leadership of Dr. Paul Shaughnessy, and our pediatric attending BMT physicians Drs. Lisa Madden and Lyndsay Molinari. If you are actively receiving care, or are maintaining care through our Long Term Follow up Program, your primary physician will be reassigned to our staff.

Your confidential medical records and health information will be maintained at Texas Transplant Specialists, located at 4410 Medical Drive, Suite 550, San Antonio, TX 78229. A copy can be transferred to a provider of your choice once you have provided written authorization requesting this transfer of records. If, however, you choose to pick up a copy of your medical records yourself, there will be a minimal charge associated.

Providers at Texas Transplant Specialists serve patients throughout San Antonio and South Texas with any and all of their transplant needs.
