The team at Women’s Care Florida’s Brandon, Lithia, Plant City and Big Bend offices welcomed a new doctor last month. Dr. Lauren Davis joined the group in late August after recently completing her OBGYN residency at Bayfront Health Hospital in St. Petersburg.
Davis, who obtained her Doctorate of Medicine at Boston University’s School of Medicine, was the Administrative Chief Resident during her time at Bayfront Health and is also certified in Robotic Surgery.
“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Davis to our team,” said Women’s Care Administrator, Melanie Denton. “We feel that she will be a great addition to our staff, bringing her own perspective and experience.”
Davis, who joins six additional doctors and three nurse practitioners at Women’s Care’s four area offices, will work mostly out of the group’s Big Bend and Brandon locations.
Women’s Care has been offering health care to females in the Brandon area for more than 30 years, focusing on obstetrics and gynecology, including in-office bone density testing and mammography screenings and sonograms. Two of Women’s Care’s doctors are certified in Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and minor in-office surgeries can be performed with the assistance of an anesthesiologist at some locations. Flu shots are also available for patients.
“Our goal is to offer high quality health care while making our patients feel comfortable,” said Denton, who explained that the offices in each of the four locations have themed exam rooms.
The group also uses Patient Portals to electronically store paperwork and let customers schedule appointments and access information.
“Not only does the Patient Portal mean that our patients can access information on their own schedule, it also cuts down on office wait times,” said Denton. “We realize that our patients’ time is as important as our doctor’s and staff’s time and hope the emphasis we place on this reflects that.”
Doctors from Women’s Care work at both Brandon Regional and St. Joseph’s South hospitals.
This month, Women’s Care is also expanding it’s hours at the Brandon office, located at 731 S. Parsons Ave., on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to make scheduling more convenient for patients. For more information, visit www.womenscarefl.com or call 681-9171.
