Florida ENT & Allergy recommends telemedicine to patients who are high risk or who prefer to see their physician from the comfort and safety of their own home/office. In-office visits are available also. Telemedicine allows the physicians to triage you on an individual basis to assess whether an in office appointment is necessary. In the case of an office visit, they are only taking a limited number of patients per day to protect their staff and patient population from cross contamination. They have also elevated their disinfection protocols and are wearing masks and gloves at all times. They also ask that patients wear face coverings when entering the office and that you let them know beforehand if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms like a fever or cough before your appointment. If you are sick, you will be referred to your primary care provider or the hospital depending on the severity of your symptoms.
Florida ENT and Allergy is open weekdays and conveniently located for most of the Tampa Bay area with 13 locations, as well as telemedicine. The board certified physicians and dedicated staff are here to meet your ear, nose, and throat needs.
