The Brooklyn Paper – Dr. Peter Tesler: “Mount Sinai’s New Brooklyn Heights Clinic Hired Long Island College Hospital Medical Doctors”

 – September 24, 2013  –– 

A newly opened walk-in health care clinic that opened last week may offer a glimpse of the future of Brooklyn medicine. Mount Sinai Health Network President Arthur Klein, MD, said, "We believe at Mount Sinai that health care is migrating to the ambulatory care sector." The urgent-care center sits in the top two floors of an 18-story tower on Cadman Plaza West at Pierrepont Street.

"You can be getting your colonoscopy while looking out on the view of lower Manhattan." Learn more
