We apologize sincerely for any inconvenience. Our lease ended and we had to move. Our Property Management Company would not allow us to place a notice on the door. Also, we have undergone a complete change in staff as there existed many very serious issues with interoffice personnel. This move has been very trying on all of us. Again, we sincerely apologize for the confusion and inconvenience. Our new contact information is as follows: 5700 Memorial Hwy Suite #118 Tampa 33615 (813) 362-5862
