||How do I make an appointment?
|To request an appointment with one of our physicians or to schedule tests in the office or hospital, please call our main number (305) 279-4500 and follow the telephone prompts for your physician.

This approach helps team the patient with subspecialists to ensure familiarity with needs specific to each patient's case.
