Make an Appointment
Patients are seen by appointment – on the same day the appointment is made if possible. To schedule an appointment, please call (727) 527-9779 during regular business hours, Mon - Fri
8:00am - 4:00pm.
Please call in advance for office visits. Make follow-up appointments as you leave. We make every effort to stay on schedule although emergencies do arise. If we are seriously delayed, we attempt to notify patients beforehand.
Patients will have an opportunity to meet his/her surgeon at the initial consultation. During the visit, the surgeon will review the patient’s diagnostic studies and medical records, perform a brief physical exam, explain the disease process and discuss treatment options, including both risks and benefits. Patients will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. The surgeon will then make a recommendation for a treatment plan. If the patient is a surgical candidate, he/she may be scheduled for surgery during the initial consultation. At times, further testing may be required prior to safely proceeding with surgery. Additional testing may also be scheduled during the visit. A patient’s initial office encounter typically lasts 1-2 hours. Due to the severity of illness in the population of patients seen by our office, some consultations may require longer than the average anticipated time; therefore, you may encounter longer than expected wait times.
Most heart and vascular disease and surgeries are very complex and every patient's specific situation is different. You should always discuss your specific circumstances with your doctor.
New patients are asked to arrive 15 minutes early to complete paperwork. You can download, print, and complete the forms prior to your appointment. Please bring the completed forms, a list of all medications you are currently taking, recent copies of x-rays, lab results and your insurance card to your appointment.
