Planning your Budget-Friendly Trip to Tampa

Tampa Bay is a Great Place to Visit

Whether you love the outdoors, catching a movie, or trying new foods, you can do it all in Tampa. Tampa is where the Lung Institute started, and our Tampa clinic has helped several with lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) breathe easier. When planning your medical trip to Tampa, consider taking the opportunity to squeeze a little fun into the agenda without breaking the bank. We have explored some great ways to help you plan your budget-friendly trip to Tampa.

  • Food & Drink Deals: Check out Creative Loafing’s website for restaurant deals. The list of deals changes regularly, and you’ll often find several hot spots there at half the price. Read the fine print, as you can usually use only one certificate per table, and some certificates are only good for dinner or breakfast. If you want to experience the local scene regardless of cost, some noteworthy restaurants to check out include: Bern’s Steakhouse, Chocolate Pi, The Columbia and Oxford Exchange
  • Things to Do: There are so many things to do in Tampa that sometimes it can be overwhelming trying to narrow it down. Groupon’s website breaks down activities by category which will help you pick the perfect activity to participate in while you’re here. A few popular activities include the Tampa Theatre, the Florida Aquarium, charter fishing and the International Plaza shopping center.
  • Relaxation: If your idea of the perfect trip is to sit back, relax and enjoy a nice massage, check out Living Social for some deals.
  • Getaways: Tampa is near some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet, such as Clearwater Beach, Fort Desoto, Ana Maria Island and Siesta Key. Make a day trip out of it, breathe some invigorating salt air, and check out some of the local restaurants at each beach.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months of COPD patients.

All claims made regarding the efficacy of Lung Institute's treatments as they pertain to pulmonary conditions are based solely on anecdotal support collected by Lung Institute. Individual conditions, treatment and outcomes may vary and are not necessarily indicative of future results. Testimonial participation is voluntary. Lung Institute does not pay for or script patient testimonials.

As required by Texas state law, the Lung Institute Dallas Clinic has received Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval from MaGil IRB, now Chesapeake IRB, which is fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Program (AAHRPP), for research protocols and procedures. The Lung Institute has implemented these IRB approved standards at all of its clinics nationwide. Approval indicates that we follow rigorous standards for ethics, quality, and protections for human research.
