Physician Changes at the Clinic

We hope you are doing well! This communication is to let you know of Dr. Tom Ervin’s planned retirement from the Boca Grande Health Clinic in September 2022.

It will not be easy for us to see off such a dedicated and caring doctor, and we will miss his wry sense of humor and the pleasant company of his dog, Moxie, who was a frequent visitor to the Clinic. We wish Dr. Ervin and his wife, Danni, all the best and many years of retirement happiness and fulfillment.

We want to assure you that your treatment will continue as usual by the other excellent doctors in the Clinic.

Your healthcare is in good hands with Dr. Raymond James and Dr. Bret Kueber. And the Clinic will welcome a new physician, Emily Haly, M.D., in November 2022. Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Haly currently practices in the Legacy Health Medical Group in St. Petersburg, Florida. More information will be provided as we get closer to her arrival on island.

You can continue to schedule your appointments at (941) 964-2276 and get the medical care you need. Appointments are available Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. And a physician is on duty after hours, weekends, and holidays by phone. Call (941) 964-2276 for instructions.

You can also contact this number in case of any questions about the transition or send an email to me directly at
