Notice to Patients of Advanced Surgical Associates
Patients of Advanced Surgical Associates,
It is with much excitement that Advanced Surgical Associates announces a merger with Arizona Associated Surgeons to form Arizona Advanced Surgery effective January 1st, 2021.
Arizona Advanced Surgery, a new entity formed in 2020, will operate with over 40 surgeons and an additional 16 allied health professionals. The providers will meet the needs of the community through a multitude of offices in the Phoenix-metropolitan area with surgical specialties of General, Breast, Colorectal, Bariatric, Trauma, Plastics, Oncology, Endocrine, and Vascular.
For our patients, little will change. Phone numbers, office staff, and locations will remain the same. Since a new electronic health record is being implemented with this transition, all patients, new and established, will need to fill out a few more documents. The new electronic health record will house a new patient portal allowing patients to request appointments, medication refills, complete paperwork, and communicate with their providers. Instructions will be available at the portal link on the website.
We are excited to be on this journey that will allow us to continue to meet your surgical needs.
For more information about our specialties and who the providers are, please visit our website at www.arizonaadvancedsurgery.com
