Florida Lung Asthma and Sleep Specialists (“FLASS”)
A graduate of the University of Ilorin in Kwara state, Nigeria, Dr. Alabi moved to the USA and completed his residency and fellowship training at Henry Ford Hospital and the University of Cincinnati, respectively.
He is the founder and managing partner of the Florida Lung Asthma and Sleep Specialists (FLASS), with offices in Celebration, Poinciana, Lake Wales and Orlando. Established in 2006, the practice currently has six other physicians and two nurse practitioners, who Dr. Alabi strongly believes are instrumental to this award.
Having received this award for the third year in a row, Dr. Alabi wants to recognize his loyal patients, who make all of this possible. They inspire him and his partners on their mission to continuously provide quality and compassionate medical care. He also wants to recognize the many referring physicians that have entrusted their patients to his group over the years.
Practice goals and value propositions:
at the core of our practice are “6 Cs” which serve as the guiding principles for patient interaction, service and engagement. These corporate goals and value propositions stand as the pillars for the practice operations. The 6 Cs are as follows:
At FLASS, we believe that excellent communication is a paramount to any successful patient/physician partnership. We are always looking for innovative tools or technology to make every interaction easy for our patients. Our patients have the option to schedule appointments online via the scheduling system on our website or calling the office directly. We also have secure contact forms on the website that can be used for simple requests, such as medication refills, or general questions to the providers.
Our approach to patient care is holistic with a strong focus on every aspect of the patient’s life, not only to their occurring condition. We believe that the emphasis should always be on the patient as a whole and never on their disease alone.
In our view, doctor’s compassion is the ability to actively and deeply imagine the suffering a patient is going through, doctors compassion in our mind trumps medical knowledge. You cannot meet the needs of patients without empathizing with their suffering.
Our patients are an extension of our FLASS family. Seeing ourselves as the extension of our patients family helps us provide reliable, compassionate and expert guidance for them and their family.
At the center of FLASS is a team of well-trained physicians and nurse practitioners. All of our physicians are board certified and have many years of experience within their chosen speciality. The members of our team are competent in their unique roles, allowing us to provide individualized treatment to our patients without undermining quality care. We believe our team should be care partners who work together with their patients throughout their decision-making process. To achieve this, we take the time to educate our patients about their diagnosis and available treatment options.
At FLASS we are committed to being an accessible, convenient practice for our patients. Over the years we have followed this principle by providing multiple locations for our patients. This year, we took a step further by providing a telemedicine service called FLASS Connect to remotely connect with patients on the move, or who cannot make it to the practice in person. This is also a convenient option for the younger tech savvy demography who find traditional office visits time-consuming. Our team is committed to providing the highest level for our care in patients.
