Located at 836 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Suite 200, Mount Sinai Coral Gables offers access to highly trained primary care and endocrinology doctors, as well as Columbia University, Ivy Leaguebacked urologists, and cardiologists from Florida’s premier heart program, the Mount Sinai Heart Institute.

These include Dr. Jose Lampreabe, internist; Dr. Leila Chaychi, endocrinologist; Dr. Akshay Bhandari, urologist; Dr. Esteban Escolar, cardiologist; Dr. Carlos Zamora, cardiologist, and Dr. Gervasio Lamas, chief of the Columbia University Division of Cardiology at Mount Sinai.
Steven D. Sonenreich, Mount Sinai president and CEO, welcomed guests and talked about Mount Sinai’s expansion within the community.
“This center is a result of our ongoing effort to expand our presence in the community and better serve our patients,” Sonenreich said. “It is our fifth satellite center in Miami-Dade County and, most notably, our second satellite center to open here in Coral Gables.”
Notable guests included Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason; Coral Gables Chamber president and CEO Mark Trowbridge, and Chamber chair Perry Adair. Mayor Cason presented Sonenreich with the Coral Gables City Seal and Perry presented a Proclamation for Success.
