About Us

Our Mission

It is the mission of the physicians of South Miami Heart Specialists to provide the residents of South Florida excellence in cardiovascular care.

Furthermore, it is our philosophy to emphasize wellness and prevention. Our physicians operate within a full-service cardiology office that treats all aspects of cardiac illness.

Along the lines of our mission, South Miami Heart Specialists is also committed to the following concepts:

Service Excellence

In addition to regular or annual check-ups, patients come to us for routine monitoring, sophisticated diagnostic testing, and pre- and post-operative care. We offer many specialized tests in our office to diagnose whether a person has cardiovascular disease and how it is affecting them. We also see many patients who are referred by other physicians for evaluation.

Responsiveness

We pride ourselves on being respectful of our patients’ time and patients who arrive on time for their appointments rarely wait more than 20 minutes before seeing a doctor. While the office maintains regular Monday-Friday hours, the physicians are available around the clock for emergencies.

Our History

Our practice was started in 1960 by Dr. Bernard Silverstein. In 2007, it moved to its current location in the Medical Arts Building of the South Miami Hospital complex.

Members of our group have served in medical leadership positions in the hospital and community to ensure continued access to excellent medical and cardiac care, also providing lectures to the community on cardiac wellness and prevention.

From the beginning, we at South Miami Heart Specialists have been dedicated to providing excellence in cardiac care to all patients, striving to make state-of-the-art technology accessible. Additionally, our doctors and staff pride themselves on delivering respectful and individualized care to each person who walks through the door.

As our group nears its 50th year, we continue to seek superb physicians to grow our practice, continuing the tradition of superior and personalized patient care.
