Mount Sinai Doctors Stuyvesant Town, a new multi-specialty practice at 518 East 20th Street, was officially opened last Thursday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Featuring state-of-the-art exam rooms and imaging services, the practice will offer extended weekday and weekend hours for both walk-in and scheduled appointments.

“Serving the downtown community is our top priority and our vast ambulatory network, one of the largest in lower Manhattan, makes this possible,” said Jeremy Boal, MD, the president of the MountSinai Downtown Network, who is also a resident of Peter Cooper Village.

Stuyvesant resident Monica Inzio, a patient, said she had been “eagerly waiting” for the practice to open.

The busy mother, wife and seasonal allergy sufferer hadn’t been feeling well for weeks once the weather started getting very cold.

“I couldn’t stop coughing, which kept me up at night,” said Inzio. “My husband walked by the practice on the first day it was open and asked if I could come in that day and they said yes! I rushed there from work, coughing the whole was and they took me right away. My family, including my husband, son and daughter will be going there. It’s great to know that it’s a practice and walk-in emergency clinic in one.”

  1. Seriously, another photo-op for our TA leader while tenants continue to battle issues like excessive noise and construction, lack of heat, out of control bikes and golf carts, etc., on their own?!?!?! Photo-ops and political grandstanding seem to be the only things this group cares about these days.

    • And I want to make it clear… I would have no problem with the photo-ops if things were getting done, and there weren’t tenants suffering from issues that the TA should be addressing on a daily basis. It’s a real problem when we are seeing less action and more pictures showing political schmoozing from the people who should be fighting for us.

  2. The only way I enter this facility is if they bring me there in an ambulance because i was unresponsive and couldn’t tell them to take me anywhere else. Since ambulances wouldn’t do that, this is another Stuy Town office/store I will never step foot in.

  3. You need to do something about your windows. You are not HIPPA compliant – There needs to be a shade or a light painted color above the waist like you do at the Urgent Care on Columbus Avenue.
