New location and new physician:
As part of our mission to bring quality service closer to our patients, we have opened a new location in Clermont by joining forces with Dr. Raul Carrillo, a well known and respected pulmonologist in the area. He brings with him 18 years of clinical practice, with the last 15 years spent in Lake County serving the areas of Leesburg, The Villages, and Clermont. He is board certified in Pulmonary Disease and Internal Medicine. He attended medical school at Universidad de Cartagena in Cartagena, Columbia. He completed postgraduate training at Elmhurst Hospital Center/Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. We are very delighted to have Dr. Carrillo join the FLASS family.
Patient Advisory Council (PAC):
We also want to take a moment to acknowledge the members of our PAC for volunteering and dedicating their time to the PAC mission. Our PAC is comprised of patients that meet with our management team to provide feedback. The council provides valuable insight on the services that we are providing to our patients, and helps us to critique our processes through the eyes of a patient.
The recommendations made by the PAC have been extremely valuable to us and have helped us design care delivery processes that place patient convenience and excellent care delivery at the core of everything we do. Our partnership with PAC has enabled us to evolve from excellent physicians into excellent care providers.
At Florida Lung Asthma and Sleep Specialists, we strive to be excellent care providers and not just excellent physicians.
