Usually, meeting a doctor is like going on a blind date or Forrest Gump's box of chocolates.
You never know what you're going to get.
But The Paradise Center is turning the tables. Residents have a chance to ask doctors about their backgrounds before having to fill out 10 pages about their own on that first visit.
The Paradise Center is hosting a four-day open house from 1-2 p.m each day from Jan. 31 through Feb. 3.
“We want the community to have an opportunity to come see our Medical Suite,” CEO Suzy Brenner said. “In the last six months, the acupuncturist is new. Our primary care doctor is new, and the chiropractor is just starting now in January.”
Doc Side Audiology is also new to Longboat Key but operates full-time out of the Tidewell building.
The Medical Suite is managed by TPC, and the doctors rotate. Health care and wellness providers in both the Medical Suite and the Tidewell building are participating in the open house.
“We fit everybody into the schedule so that people could come out and see the space and get more familiar with all the professionals that are in the building.”
No need to register; walk-ins are welcome. Beyond talk of education and billing, there will be refreshments and sample giveaways.
