Mount Sinai Doctors Urgent Care Inwood hosted a “Winter Wonderland” for 160 children and their parents on Friday, December 18. The young guests created ice cream cone ornaments, built mini popsicle-sleds, made snow globes, and warmed up at a hot chocolate cookie bar. The children, who are students from Good Shepherd School; Public School 98; PS 310 Marble Hill; and Elementary School for Math, Science, and Technology, also played in an igloo teepee, went “ice fishing,” and had their photos taken with Elsa, Anna, and Olaf, characters from Walt Disney’s film Frozen©. Staffed by Mount Sinai physicians, the Urgent Care facility provides convenient access to immediate medical attention for the Inwood community, which is located in Manhattan’s northernmost neighborhood.
Urgent care specialist Crissaris Sarnelli, MD, left, and Judah Fierstein, MD, Medical Director of the Mount Sinai Health System’s Urgent Care Centers, are among the physicians caring for patients at Mount Sinai Urgent Care Inwood, which recently celebrated its opening at Broadway and 213th Street in Manhattan’s northernmost neighborhood. The facility—part of Mount Sinai Doctors Faculty Practice—specializes in walk-in care for nonemergency injuries and illnesses for adults and children, seven days a week, including holidays.
The opening this year of Mount Sinai Doctors Brooklyn Heights brings coordinated, efficient and quality outpatient medical care to the borough for the very first time. Medical care at this office, located at 300 Cadman Plaza West (One Pierrepoint Plaza) on the 17th and 18th floors, is community-based and convenient. I am the medical director of what our patients have been referring to as “medical services under one roof” or a “medical mall”. I’m also the medical director of WESTMED Practice Partners, a company that builds and manages large centers like this for comprehensive outpatient care.
