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.”
