In 1988, our practice began as a primary care clinic in the heart of South Tampa’s Hyde Park neighborhood. Twenty Five years later – and ahead of the major shifts in health care delivery – we are proud to offer our patients the services of a multi-specialty clinic, diagnostic center, medication dispensary, medical spa, infusion center, AADE accredited Diabetes Education Program and COLA-accredited laboratory in a single South Tampa location.
Using a fully-integrated electronic health record system, our providers create and maintain a single, comprehensive digital file for each patient. Test results, progress notes, and current medication lists are maintained in one place for all providers – from primary to specialty care – to access and update. Our patients also have 24/7 remote access to personal health information through our secure Patient Portal.
We believe this integrated approach to health care will increase the quality of our patients’ care and decrease our patients’ total health care expenses.
In order to assist our primary care patients with management of chronic diseases, we now offer enhanced services through our diabetes clinic, Coumadin clinic, and lipid clinic. These clinics offer the added expertise of our board certified specialist physicians’ input and oversight while conveniently located where patients receive primary care.
Significant changes in health care delivery systems are expected in 2013 and 2014. We are excited about meeting the challenges ahead, and believe our practice model provides the high-quality, convenient care that patients expect.
