A Message From Dr. Bass

We are going through a very strange time right now in the fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19). As you may know, all elective surgery in the state of Florida was canceled as of 3/19/2020. It is with great sadness that this has impacted many of you who have worked so hard to get through the preoperative process to have surgery or decided to start your journey to a healthier new you by taking that first step in scheduling an appointment for consultation. However, safety will always come first and foremost to me and my team, so it is important that we follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the FL Department of Health.

The office is temporarily closed to patients, but our phone lines will remain open on a limited basis for any questions about appointments, referrals and general information. If you are having an emergency or an urgent need, our phone always goes to an answering service who gets in contact with me when the office is not open. The office number remains the same: 239-494-8777.

We will post regular updates on the website as things change with the day to day operations of the practice.

We will be implementing telehealth appointments in the immediate future and as soon as possible we will get back to office hours, classes, support groups, and surgery.

Stay Safe!

Dr. Thomas Bass and Staff
