Dr. Peter Curcione and his partners in the Athletic Orthopedic and Reconstructive Center have moved from their prior Fort Myers office to a new state-of-the-art facility at 3210 Cleveland Ave. in Fort Myers.
For patient convenience, the new Fort Myers office features on-site MRI services and a new, fully equipped rehabilitation and fitness center. In addition, the practice has installed electronic medical records and digital X-rays to improve efficiencies for patients, physicians and staff.
“Electronic medical records provide immediate access to patient information,” said Curcione. “For example, a patient comes in with recurring hip pain. Using the EMR, I can immediately access his patient record to review his previous diagnosis, prior test results and document any new complaints. Very quickly, I have accurate, up-to-date information to help me make the best decisions for my patient.”
The practice also added touch screen patient kiosks in exam rooms allowing patients to more quickly and accurately enter in their medical symptoms, medical and surgical history, medications, family history, allergies and other medical background. In addition, new digital images have replaced large bulky X-rays. Images now are stored on the computer and can be accessed in patient exam rooms and physician work stations.
The office number remains the same at 239-936-6778. Curcione also continues to see patients at his Lehigh office at 3400 Lee Blvd., Suite 105 in Lehigh Acres. The Lehigh office number remains the same at 239-368-8277.
