Orlando Health Medical Group FHV Health expands Care with Fenney Location
A much-needed option for primary care for the whole family is now available to even more residents of Lake and Sumter counties.
In October, Orlando Health Medical Group FHV Health opened a new primary care office adjacent to the Village of Fenney in The Villages.
Patient care in the new location is in the capable hands of Tanya Diaz, MD, a board-certified family medicine physician, and Angela Tatro, APRN, a certified family nurse practitioner (FNP-C). The practice specializes in primary care for the entire family, from the age of
5 and up.
Dr. Diaz sees patients from 12 and older, while Tatro also sees younger patients.
“This is a growing area. We’re seeing not just geriatric patients, but also more families,” says Dr. Diaz, who has been with Orlando Health Medical Group for 13 years.
“Adding this clinic reduces wait time, gives more specialist options, and allows us to have more time with our patients. Now people don’t have to drive over an hour to go to the doctor. We’re bringing services here that people had to go to Orlando for,” notes Tatro, who has over two decades of nursing experience in Central Florida.
Not only can some patients literally drive to doctor appointments on their golf carts, but this new office also makes health care convenient for families by providing school physicals and so much more.
“This location was opened to cater to the Fenney, Middleton, South Wildwood, and Coleman communities,” says Tatro.
The focus on families and school-age patients makes total sense for Diaz and Tatro, who both have children enrolled in The Villages Charter Schools.
This newest location provides wellness and preventative care for children, adults and seniors.
Services include annual wellness exams and health screenings, treatment for acute and chronic conditions, geriatric care, health maintenance, chronic disease management, minor procedures, and care for common illnesses.
Diaz, who is bi-lingual, routinely cares for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. Because she offers well woman care, including pap smears, this reduces the need for patients to visit a separate doctor’s office for gynecological exams.
The clinic is also happy to offer the option of telehealth appointments, which Diaz says have grown in popularity with younger patients.
The Fenney location of Orlando Health Medical Group FHV Health at 3425 Warm Springs Ave. in The Villages is currently accepting new patients. To schedule an appointment, call (352) 315-7670.
