Our Hialeah doctors are considered to be some of the best in the region who continually increase their knowledge and skills in order to stay current with medical practices. In an effort to serve all of our patients to the best of our ability, we have added new and revolutionary services over the many years including Ultrasound, EKG, Pap smear, Lab and Blood work, Workman’s Comp Consultations, and patient transportation services. We feel that over the last 2 decades we have developed a family-orientated approach that has enabled us to service up to 3 generations of South Florida and Miami residents. We pride ourselves on the fact that our staff has been as consistent as our location and that many of them have been with us for well over a decade. Come and experience our friendly and professional staff for yourself and let us help you on the path to better health.
Dr. Mendizabal-Piedra was born in La Habana, Cuba. Her family wanting the best for her sent her to the United States at the young age of 15. While in Miami, FL, she graduated from Miami Springs Senior High. She then set out for Spain to attend Medical school, in an attempt to follow in her father's footsteps. Accompanying her on her journey would be her new husband, Osvaldo Piedra, an aspiring physician himself. Dr. Mendizabal-Piedra obtained her Doctorate in Medicine and Surgery from La Universidad De Oviedo in 1984. She completed her internship at Metropolitan Hospital in New York in 1986. Dr. Mendizabal-Piedra also completed her residency and served as a Chief Resident in Internal Medicine at Metropolitan Hospital in 1989 and 1990, respectively. She opened her medical practice in 1990 and has been located in the same location since as a Hialeah based doctor.
Ultrasound: As a way to better serve our patients we have added not only abdominal, but also cardiac ultrasound capabilities to our Hialeah clinic. This allows our staff to better treat our patients without having to send them out for testing as frequently, keeping the service professional and centralized.
EKG: Electrocardiograms have been performed regularly at GMP ( Gloria Mendizabal Piedra M.D) Medical since 1995 and offer our staff a quick look as to the cardiac function of a patient in the event the Dr. feels it is necessary.
Lab/ Blood Work: We have a phlebotomist on staff and work with all the major laboratories. Including but not limited to Quest, Labcorp, and CBS. Our patients have found this to be our most convenient service due to the fact that they can avoid the lines at their local Lab.
Other Services: Pap smear, Urine Analysis, Ear Wax Removal.
