As of July 31, 2014 Dr. Gorrell will no longer be associated with South Tampa Urgent Care

Dr. Gorrell has severed his relationship as designated physician with Fix All Medical Clinic (PMC748) effective July 31, 2014. He will continue to see any patients that may have been treated there on an emergency only basis. If patients are needing their medical records, they are to send a request to Kurt Shultz at Fix All Medical Clinic at 2123 West Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd Suite 201 Tampa, FL 33607. For patients needing treatment, they are to call The Gorrell Institute at 352-224-3139. Patients will need to have copies of their records and will be charged the rate of a follow up patient. The Gorrell Institute does accept Medicare, Simply Health Care Medicare and all Cigna Plans. If a patient does have a plan that we participate with, then applicable co-payments and deductibles will be collected.

Walgreens and their Secret Checklist

Recently, we opened up our doors and invited the local pharmacists to come and visit our practice. We had three pharmacies take us up on our offer and stopped by. I would like to thank Cortez Drugs, Seven Hills Pharmacy, and Pinebrook Pharmacy for taking the time out of their day and coming to visit our office. We did this mostly because of patients that have complained that Walgreens had refused to fill their prescription(s) and inferred that it had something to do with Dr. Gorrell.

We came across and interesting article that reveals the selective process Walgreens has been using to choose whom they will fill and whom they will not fill for.

We want to encourage patients that have been denied their medications by Walgreens to file a complaint.

Pharmacy Relationships

Dr. Gorrell is taking an innovative approach to the difficult and complex dynamic between pain management clinics/physicians and pharmacies/pharmacists. He has issued the invitation to pharmacies and their staff to come and visit his clinic open door style.

Dr. Gorrell is board certified in both anesthesia as well as pain management and exempt from the state requirement to register and be inspected, however he chooses to for quality assurance standards. He is now taking it one step further and opening his doors to local pharmacies. He will have an open door for pharmacists and their staff all day to tour the office and review his documents.

Since his move to Spring Hill in 2012, he has been working to develop rapport with local pharmacies because it is difficult for patients to find pain medication due to the pain medication shortage as well as the evolving rules and regulations that individual pharmacies have imposed. Dr. Gorrell will make available his forms and documents, his quality assurance manual, prior inspection reports, his curriculum vitae, criminal background report as well as a redacted patient record.
