Environment

At South Tampa Dermatology, we are committed to the environment. We have taken the following steps to reduce our carbon footprint and to use fewer resources.

Some of the steps we have taken include:

  • Our building’s security lighting for covered parking uses energy efficient LED lights which consume only 60 watts of power.
  • The carpet at the entrance to our building is made from recycled plastic.
  • All our computers and appliances are Energy Star compliant and have been since day one.
  • Our Five-ton Carrier air conditioner has a SEER 16 rating – the most efficient unit available at that time.
  • Our Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system was implemented on day one over seven years ago, saving a tremendous amount of paper and eliminating the need for space and filing cabinets for patient records. And the wireless environment means no cable was needed to install the computer system.
  • The HIPAA-compliant EMR system has used cloud computing from day one, requiring only an internet connection and no power-hungry server.
  • We instituted electronic prescriptions five years ago; saving even more paper.
  • Ulta-efficient LED lights are used throughout the office.
  • The hot water heater is used only 20 minutes per day, lowering electricity consumption.
  • The office was designed with a compact hub-and-spoke design centered around the nursing station – saving steps and time for the patients, doctor and staff.
