Update 3/30/2020

Our Bonita Springs Office is now closed until further notice and our Cape Coral Office will be closing on Monday, April 6. Telemedicine appointments are now available to Gastroenterology Associates of Southwest Florida, P.A. patients. A telemedicine appointment allows you to connect to one of our providers from any device and any location.

Our goal remains, as always, to provide patients with the best possible care. With telemedicine appointments, we’re able to provide increased access to care, without needing patients to make the trip to the office in some cases.

COVID-19 Guidlines

We kindly ask that patients please reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms such as cough, fever, and shortness of breath, by calling (239) 275-8882.

We are also asking that in order to protect you and all of our patients and staff that you do not bring unnecessary people or children in the office with you to your appointment. If you are bringing a patient to our surgery center, we encourage that rather than wait in our office that you leave a contact number with us and we’ll call you when the patient is ready to be picked up. This will help limit your exposure to other patients and staff members.

Patient Guidelines on the Coronavirus

We strongly suggest that all patients with upcoming appointments complete their check-in forms, including the coronavirus screening, by following the link in the appointment reminder email or text message. This will help limit the amount of time spent in the office.

Gastroenterology Associates of SW Florida, P.A., is following CDC guidelines in regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and is taking precautions to prevent its spread. Our goal remains, as always, to provide you the best possible treatment for your healthcare needs. However, the safety of our employees and patients is our utmost concern.

Here are some helpful tips to protect yourself and others:

  • Clean your hands often
  • Avoid close contact
  • Stay home if you’re sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Wear a facemask if you are sick
