Dr Gorrell Renews His 10 Year Anesthesia Board Certification

Dr. Gorrell renewed his Anesthesia Board Certification in July of 2011 with The American Board of Anesthesiology (www.theaba.org).  MOCA, or Maintenance of Certification, originated with the American Board of Medical Specialties in 1999.  The ongoing Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment, continual assessment of Professional Standing (medical licensure), periodic assessments of Practice Performance and decennial assessment of Cognitive Expertise allow physicians the opportunity to improve their skills in six general competencies – Medical Knowledge; Patient Care; Practice-Based Learning and Improvement; Professionalism; Interpersonal and Communication Skills; and Systems-Based Practice.  By implementing these activities, Dr. Gorrell has demonstrated his commitment to quality clinical outcomes and patient safety.

Dr. Gorrell offers anesthesia services (as locum tenens), pain management (including interventional pain management), and wellness/functional medicine.

Pain Management Special! Call Today; be seen in 24 hours!

We have a limited number of openings in the the panel for new patients so call now: 352-224-3139. We can give you an appointment to be seen within 24 hours!  As always advocating for your health,  The Gorrell Institute is open from 10 AM  to 5 PM Monday  through Friday.  Appointments are preferred. Walk-ins accommodated if possible. We are a full-service pain management facility including interventional pain management procedures by a Anesthesiologist such as epidural steroid injections, facet blocks, and coming soon; dorsal column stimulator trials and Suboxone detox. Additionally, the Gorrell Institute of Wellness Medicine is here for you if you want to look, feel, and metabolically function like you were 10 years younger. If you have stumped your prior doctors with problems like SLE, RA, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, Chron’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis or just feeling tired & run down come see Dr Gorrell.

We believe that there is such a thing as chronic pain and if you are suffering from this condition you deserve to be seen by a compassionate physician who listens to you, does a physical exam, and creates a plan that you both agree on. Dr Gorrell will work diligently with you to improve the quality of your life and your ability to function in life by improved pain management.  If you, your friends, or family are in pain management & would like to receive healthcare from a compassionate pain management Doctor who spends time with you, call our office at 352-224-3139. We require all new patients to provide  their most recent 6 month prescription history from their pharmacy, most recent radiology reports if any, and a valid Florida ID as we do not accept out-of-state patients.  The most recent three months of doctor’s notes from any previous provider  including primary care, psychiatry, or a referral to pain management are preferred but not mandatory. We request and require that all documents are faxed from original sources to our fax machine at 727-359-0230 as well as bringing in your own copies to accelerate the process. We see new patients as soon as the documents are verified but cannot control how much time it takes for other healthcare providers to respond to our request for records verification. So, typically initial visits for patients that do not have their document faxed and do not bring copies takes longer. Accordingly, we insist that for the initial patient visit one should not bring nonessential friends, family, children etc as they will have to wait a long time.

Our goal is to set a new standard and exceed the current standard of care in pain management. If you are a like-minded individual, you are invited to schedule an appointment.

Anti-Aging & Wellness Succeeds where Disease Management Fails for How to Get Pregnant

July 28, 2011 5 PM. We are at the Hospital in Spring Hill, FL with Merrilee Severino my world famous Wellness Medicine spokesmodel. By following my program of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement & Nutraceuticals, she is now having her first child at 39 years old! She is doing now what she failed to do at 28 even though she was under the care of a Fertility OB specialist & had paid $3-4000 for each of the 2 rounds of Intra Uterine Insemination that she went through & she was on many different pharmaceutical drugs! By focusing on wellness & not on treating disease, I made her healthy enough to carry Amy Beth Gorrell to term. If you want to be healthier & be free of disease, call the office at 352-224-3139. As you get healthier, the side effects could well be that you are cured of infertility, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease etc.

Sunday July 24, 2011 at 4:30 PM Transitions Lifestyle Systems Meetup at the Gorrell Institute!

Call 1-800-788-1444 to RSVP for the special meeting with Dr. Gorrell. You will not want to miss the opportunity to meet with other people, share your successes, and learn why your inability to lose weight is not your fault. The root cause of obesity in America is a metabolic malnutrition. Until this is fixed and understood, you cannot lose weight. Come learn step-by-step how to be a success and not a failure. Every class includes a question and answer session at the end. That’s like getting a free consult with Dr. Gorrell. The classes are five dollars with an RSVP and $10 at the door. This program is based on the principles of low glycemic index eating making it safe for diabetics and those with heart disease. It helps the body heal itself and in the process people have seen these conditions dramatically improve and sometimes go away completely. Transitions Lifestyle System® is a complete weight management system that encompasses low-glycemic eating, body composition and behavior modification. This is an easy-to-follow, enjoyable system that includes daily journaling, behavior modification, education, nutraceutical supplements that  allow the body to reset its metabolism.

PS: the staff is looking for 20 responsible adults and 10 responsible school-aged children who are committed to losing weight. There will be part of the certified coaching program and receive VIP attention. Before-and-after pictures will be taken, as well as body fat tape measurements and a electronic percent body fat measured. If you follow the simple research proven process, your success is guaranteed. It’s like going to AAA in getting the roadmaps with the path clearly marked for you so you can get  from A to B without getting lost!

Getting ready for the birth of Amy Beth Gorrell; Inducing Labor with Accupuncture

Saturday, July 23, 2011 about 5 PM. Dr. Davis is here to begin traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture therapy for the induction of labor. There are research papers that show it to be 70% effective using one set of acupuncture points which is the same as oxytocin! Using a second set of meridian points, research showed acupuncture to be 92% effective in the induction of labor. This is even better than oxytocin!  Since it is gentler and works in harmony with the body, it is less likely to stress the fetus and precipitate meconium. This paper was published in the Journal of traditional Chinese medicine and material medical in 1989 by Fujian J. Please call the office to schedule your appointment with one of the best Chinese medicine physicians  in town: 352-224-3139.


The birth of this child for Merrilee Severino is a true miracle and her first baby. The take-home lesson for everyone here, however, is that my focus was not on getting her pregnant as her physician, but instead focusing on making her body well and healthy. I encourage everyone who reads this to focus on wellness first and doing all the things you can do with  Lifestyle, nutraceuticals, and  finally, testing your hormone levels to see what is out of balance instead of treatment of disease. You will find that her much healthier, happier, stronger and you live longer.
