We at Suncoast Surgical Associates are fortunate and proud to have a group of physicians who are experts in their various fields. We are a group of board certified and fellowship trained general and thoracic surgeons with offices in Tampa, Riverview and Brandon, Florida. We currently operate out of three hospitals and one surgery center, Brandon Regional Hospital, St. Joseph’s South Hospital, Memorial Hospital of Tampa, and Bay Area Physicians Surgery Center.
Our physicians understand that any surgery is a major event in your life. This is why we make every effort to make you feel at ease. We understand that you are an individual, and each patient is unique. We will take our time to listen closely to your questions and concerns, and then formulate a custom tailored plan. We make sure to take the time with you in order that you completely understand your individualized plan, as you are your best advocate. Our surgeons and staff work as a coordinated team, each applying his or her expertise to your particular case. You will always know who to call before or after your surgery, and we return calls promptly, usually on the same day.
Surgical expertise, compassionate surgeons and superb care – that’s what makes your Suncoast Surgical experience a remarkable one.
