As we all continue to deal with the coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) we are going to continue to serve our patients. We are following all guidelines provided by the state. We are open for regular office hours: Monday-Thursday from 8:15-4:30 and Friday 8:30-3:00.
By order of the Governor of Alabama and the State Health Officer: Effective April 30, 2020, at 5:00 P.M., dental, medical, or surgical procedures may proceed unless the State Health Officer or his designee determines that performing such procedures, or any category of them (whether statewide or regionally), would unacceptably reduce access to personal protective equipment or other resources necessary to diagnose and treat COVID-19. This Order shall remain in full force and effect until 5:00 P.M. on March 5, 2021, unless extended, rescinded, or modified in writing before that time.
We are asking that patients come in alone or come with just 1 caregiver. We ask that patients wear their own mask upon entering our lobby & be prepared to have your temperatures taken. We do have facemasks available should you need one. We offer seating in our back hallways should you request or you may wait in your car once you have registered for your appointment until it’s time for you to see your physician and we will call you to come back to our office.
Advanced Surgeons, P.C. is excited to announce the arrival of a new general surgeon, E. Andrew Fazendin, MD. Dr. Fazendin is now seeing new patients, so contact our office today to schedule an appointment. Give us a call at (205) 595-8985 or request an appointment through our secure online form. Join us in welcoming Dr. Fazendin to our practice!
Two of our terrific surgeons were recently recognized for their outstanding work in their field!
Dr. Barton Wood achieved accrediation as a Master Surgeon in Robotic Surgery (MSRS) from the Surgical Review Corporation. According to the SRC, “(His) achievement demonstrates an exemplary commitment to quality improvement and patient safety.”
During these times and always, our duty is to protect you and provide you all with a safe environment for your healthcare needs. In light of COVID-19, we have taken all state mandated precautions and are constantly following the CDC to ensure we are making the right decisions.
Update 11/1/2020: Gov. Kay Ivey has extended the statewide mask order through November 30. Everyone who enters the office is required to wear a mask.
Our clinic will maintain regularly scheduled hours, and all necessary procedures/surgeries are being conducted to keep our patients, staff, and the general public healthy during this outbreak.
Our staff have received training on COVID-19, and will diligently carry out the recommended protocols. We will take appropriate measures to ensure that our patients are able to address their medical needs. We are asking all our patients who exhibit symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath to call our office before coming for an appointment or surgery.
We understand that fears and anxieties are elevated in our community. We will update our community if it is determined that additional actions need to be taken.
