Can I schedule surgical services directly or do I have to go through my doctor?
You do need a referral from your doctor. If you do not have a doctor, you can call the hospital 850-973-2271 for a list of providers in the area. Patients are admitted to the OR through a referral from a primary care physician. The primary care physician consults with our surgeon to ensure each patient is a good candidate for our program. Once the surgeon approves a referral from your physician, a scheduler will contact you to set up an appointment. During the initial appointment, our team performs a thorough evaluation to better understand the patient’s medical history and condition to establish an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.
