The compassionate and highly trained physician staff will be led by prominent cardiovascular specialist Gonzalo Loveday, MD, FACC, who will be the practice’s medical director. The practice will also include primary care provided by Ruben Reider, MD, and Yael Vidal, MD; highly specialized cardiovascular care provided by Gabriel Breuer, MD, FACC, Chauncey W. Crandall IV, MD, FACC, Steven A. Malosky, MD, Utpal N. Sagar, MD, FACC, and Dr. Loveday; nationally recognized gastroenterology care by Chester Maxson, MD, FACG, Louis Rosainz, MD, FACG, and Bernard Stein, MD, FACG; and innovative ophthalmology care by David A.

Mount Sinai Doctors Palm Beach will provide seamless coordination of care, including same-day and next-day appointments, as well as 24-hour on-call access to specialists. The practice prides itself on individualized patient care.
Mount Sinai Doctors Palm Beach is emblematic of Mount Sinai’s strategic development and ongoing efforts to expand health care nationally.
“The staff and clinical leadership at Mount Sinai Doctors Palm Beach have been carefully chosen from a large pool of national applicants and are dedicated to providing comprehensive, highest-quality care to their patients,” said Arthur Klein, MD, President of the Mount Sinai Health Network. “We are proud to provide the resources of our nationally and internationally recognized academic health care system to benefit the residents and businesses of Palm Beach County.”
