Anyone in the Ocala area? Or Florida at all?

Hello!

Hope everyone is doing well at this time. I currently live in the Tampa Bay area. However I am moving to the Ocala area. Does anyone currently live near there and have a doctor that treats them? I only plan to change hospitals and doctors as it will make it close to a 1.5 hr drive on ivig days (I go every other week 2 days in a row) and for safety reasons I feel it is best to find a place closer to my new home. My current physician will not have privileges at the local hospital so I will need a new doctor so any help will be great! 

 

Thank you so very much. Stay  well and crisis free. Prayers for all.

Shannon,

I have a winter home in Micanopy, Florida, just north of Ocala. When in Florida I use the UF Shands infusion center in Gainesville. It's a few blocks away from from the huge hospital so parking is much more pleasant. My hematologist there is Bradley Fletcher.

Hope this helps,

Susan
