Carmelina and Miguel do everything as a couple – even coming to BVMI – and both are very grateful for the care they receive. When they’re here, they always see the same doctor for primary care, but in the event they have other medical needs, BVMI has many onsite specialists who can often take care of them. BVMI’s onsite volunteers specialize in cardiology, gynecology, podiatry, dermatology, gastroenterology, nephrology, diabetes and even general surgery.
This approach has benefited both Carmelina and Miguel, who say they feel “like family” when they come to BVMI. They also appreciate being able to have most of their healthcare needs taken care of in one place, so their time out of work is kept to a minimum.
“BVMI is, first and foremost, a primary care facility,” said Dr. Arthur De Simone, BVMI’s medical director. “But we are very fortunate to have many specialists who donate their time and talent to keep our patients healthy.”
