Texas Ambulatory Surgical Centers are committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for our patients in need of ambulatory surgical services. The services we offer are often referred to as same-day surgery because our patients are able to return home on the same day that they have their procedure performed.
Unlike hospitals that are focused on providing general care, our ambulatory surgical centers are focused solely on surgery. This allows us to provide tailored treatment in a comfortable yet cost-effective manner to our patients.
Our commitment to safety is unparalleled in our field. The safety of our ambulatory surgical centers is exemplary. Our patients have come to expect a high quality of care. Everyone who walks through our doors is treated with dignity and respect.
Why We Are Different
One of the reasons we stand out from other surgical facilities in the area is because of how we work behind the scenes. Unlike large hospitals, ASCs do not have the expenses from multiple departments. As a result, we are able to offer you a lower price for your surgical procedures.
We will not have you waiting for hours on the day of your surgical procedure, and there are shorter wait times to get your surgery scheduled. The procedures that we pioneer are designed to allow you to recover in the comfort and safety of your home.
Our facilities are state-of-the-art. Our surgeons, many of whom are board-certified, have years of experience successfully carrying out a variety of outpatient procedures. Since they are free from the stresses and demands of the typical hospital system, they are able to build a one-on-one relationship with you, understand your health care situation and provide you with the customized, personalized and in-depth surgical care you deserve.
The superiority of the service that we provide is also seen in the pre-surgical stage of your care. We partner with Physician Partners of America. This allows us to provide services in a way that reduces your stress before the surgery. In most cases, thanks to our working with affiliated health and counseling services, our patients receive pre-surgical screening in as little as two or three weeks. We work with our patients to provide quick pre-surgical psychological care that can be approved by their insurance plan.
From start to finish, our ambulatory surgery centers will work with you to provide you swift and professional service.
We are happy to accept all forms of United States, Canadian and other foreign government assistance. Medicare, Medicaid, Worker’s Compensation, CHAMPUS and all forms of commercial insurance are happily accepted.
Our ASCs are also able to utilize affiliate services to streamline and expedite any pre-surgical requirements. Through the ASCs partnership with Physician Partners of America, we are able to offer a stress-reducing instead of stress-inducing process for obtaining pre-surgical requirements. For example, Texas Health and Counseling is able to provide Texas Ambulatory Surgery Center patients a pre-surgical screening within 2-3 weeks. Usually, this prerequisite can take months to complete; a barrier to getting the relief patients so desperately need. Patients run into difficulties finding psychologists on their insurance plan, offices willing to accept new patients, and first available appointments several months away. Instead, our partnerships help alleviate the unnecessary added stress for pre-surgical screening and reduce the prolonged period of un-treated pain through swift service.
Our Ambulatory Surgery Centers accept all forms of United States, Canadian and other foreign government insurance. ASCT also accepts Medicare, Medicaid, Champus, Workers Compensation, and ALL forms of Commercial Insurance.
Physician Partners of America created their outpatient surgical centers for three important reasons:
It costs less
Because you don’t have to be concerned about staying overnight in the hospital, the cost for outpatient surgery is dramatically less. This is because hospital room costs and the expenses that are related to it are the biggest part of your bill. If you don’t have to stay overnight, you won’t incur those kinds of costs.
We work around your schedule
For many of our patients, it’s easier to schedule outpatient surgery around their work schedule and family life than it is to be admitted to the hospital. If you’re having a procedure done in a large hospital, you are at the whim of surgeries ahead of yours that may take substantially longer and, thus, delay your own surgery.
The chances of that happening in a same day surgical center are far less.
Generally, outpatient surgery at a Physician Partners of America facility is less stressful than inpatient surgery. You’ll also have the opportunity to recover in your own home instead of being tied up at the hospital.
One of the biggest benefits to an outpatient surgery is how much easier it is for children. Kids can be very frightened in the hospital overnight away from home but in the outpatient surgical center they can recover quickly and go home that day.
The Texas Ambulatory Surgery Centers’ Story
We all have a story to share. And we are proud to share ours! The journey of where we come from tells us about who we are today and who we want to be tomorrow.
For Texas Ambulatory Surgery Centers, our journey began with Dr. Rodolfo Gari MD MBA, an expert both in medicine and business. After treating patients for more than 25 years, Dr. Gari was dissatisfied with the workplace options for doctors; hospital settings required doctors to do time-consuming bureaucratic tasks and private practice relied on doctors’ expertise in non-medical areas like insurance and accounting. Dr. Gari envisioned a workplace that utilized his skills efficiently and allowed him to use his time to do what he loves most: care for his patients. There are too few hours in the day as it is, so why do healthcare systems sidetrack doctors from using their time to do what they do best?
From this innovative vision, Dr. Gari founded and built Surgery Partners of America, a successful chain of ambulatory surgery centers grown under his leadership to one of the largest surgery center organization in Florida. After selling the business in 2009, Dr. Gari began to dream even bigger and the seeds for Physician Partners of America were sown.
And so with an expanded vision, Dr. Gari founded Physician Partners of America in 2013 to partner with a wider team of specialized doctors and therefore serve a wider base of patients with high-caliber healthcare. Likewise, Florida Ambulatory Surgery Center and Texas Ambulatory Surgery Center’s shared goal is to strengthen the doctor-patient relationship, in order to provide a patient-centered experience that results in better patient outcomes. Our company has a unique history, rooted in our leaderships’ successful experience building and growing world-class ambulatory surgery centers. Today, we are readily transforming the patient experience in the Tampa Bay and Dallas area, and as for tomorrow, we hope to be revolutionizing the patient experience in new cities throughout the great states of America!
Our team of surgeons is deeply experienced in a variety of procedures and in utilizing the state-of-the-art resources available to them at our Physician Partners of America outpatient surgical centers.
