Our physicians, Dr. John K. Butterick and Dr. Wynton L. Hall Jr., previously operated a private surgical practice together for more than 30 years in the Tampa Bay area. Over the years, they have provided thousands of patients with comprehensive and compassionate surgical care and with their vast experience in general and vascular surgery, they are well-qualified to deal with a wide range of problems in diagnosing and treating venous disorders.
Both physicians have also completed a comprehensive study course on ultrasound physics, sonography principles, and vascular technology and subsequently sat for and passed a rigorous exam qualifying them as Registered Vascular Technologists by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. ARDMS credentials document personal achievement and expertise of recognized professional standards.
Our practice currently employs seven staff members in addition to our physicians. We are proud to highlight their compassionate and caring attitudes which transcend into every facet of our practice. They go above and beyond the scope of being accommodating for every patient need. Our patients do not feel like a "number" and experience very little wait times in our office. We schedule our patients so that each and every one will receive the physician's full time and attention for their particular concerns. We do not "double book".
Practice Manager/Registered Nurse:
Our Practice Manager is currently a registered nurse with a Bachelor's Degree and over 30 years experience in cardiovascular intensive care and business management. She assists the physicians with most of the surgical procedures and is skilled in ultrasonography techniques.
We currently employ a registered nurse as well as a medical assistant, both with over 15 years each of surgical and patient care experience. They circulate with surgical procedures and assist in patient care from consultation to last visit. They strive to maintain a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for our patients.
Front Office Manager
Our front office manager is a medical assistant and also has over 10 years experience in office billing and coding, management, and is highly skilled with electronic claim submission and computer technology.
Our insurance verification specialist makes sure that all patients are authorized for their procedures and works diligently reviewing charts and arranging peer reviews so that almost every patient can be confident that their insurance needs will be fully utilized with no hidden charges. Our patient's authorizations as well as their financial estimates and needs are provided before any procedures are performed. She is also fluent in Spanish.
Patient Check-In and Discharge:
Both of our reception and check-out personnel are also medical assistants so they have a vast knowledge of medical language and of the procedures provided by our practice. Both staff members are extremely welcoming and accommodating and have a wonderful rapport with our patients. Our check-in staff is also fluent in Spanish.
