Patient Information

The DDA Patient Experience

We’re committed to providing our patients with a positive experience in every aspect of their interaction with our office and medical professionals. From answering your medical questions to providing easy-to-use account services, we strive to keep you informed and satisfied with your care.

We encourage you to register with our Patient Portal, which provides you with secure log-in access for a wide range of services, including viewing your account; requesting appointments, prescription refills, and accessing health history forms.

 Here’s important information that will help us help you:


Medical Record Release Forms



Prescription renewals and refills can be requested from your Patient Portal account or by calling our office at (352) 331-8902.


Should you experience any side effects of the medication you have been prescribed, call our office immediately to report the problem. During evening hours, our answering service will forward your call to the physician on call.

Should you experience an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, skin rash, etc), discontinue the medication immediately and call 911.


Patients beginning any treatment for Hepatitis C should call the “member services” department for their insurance plan to determine the preferred pharmacy for injectable medications. Many insurance plans offer a mail order pharmacy for their injectables, while oral medications may be received from a local pharmacy provider.


If you have been ordered biologics by your physician, use this convenient worksheet for guidance.
