Office Surgery Registration

The Florida Office Surgery Registration and Inspection Program was established to register and set standards for allopathic and osteopathic physicians performing surgery in an office setting. All physicians who perform liposuction procedures where more than 1,000 cubic centimeters of supernatant fat is removed, Level II procedures lasting more than five minutes and all Level III surgical procedures in an office setting must register with the Department of Health. The Department will register the offices and inspect those that are not nationally accredited to ensure the safety of the people of Florida.

Notice to Licensees About FraudulentDocuments

The Florida Department of Health (DOH) is aware that documents purportedly originating from DOH requesting information of a sensitive nature have been received by members of the public. These documents request licensees share information that may be used to commit fraud against a licensee or patient. DOH is committed to protecting the integrity of DOH licensees and consumers. The DOH Office of Inspector General is in contact with the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate fraud perpetrated on our licensees.

Should you receive a document that appears to be from DOH, but you believe may be fraudulent, you may contact your local law enforcement agency or you may contact DOH at 850-488-0595 for instructions on how to proceed. Your cooperation and assistance is vital in protecting the continued integrity of DOH licensees and our consumers.
