The Brooklyn Hospital Center's Manhattan Avenue Family Health Center, located in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, is one of TBHC's four family health care centers. The Center serves a diverse and evolving community and is an important health care provider for Greenpoint residents. While the Center has always accommodated the Polish-speaking residents in the neighborhood, we are now expanding services to increase access for the Spanish-speaking residents as well.
A Full Range of Services for the Entire Family's Health Care Needs:
Our multi-lingual staff has always provided a full range of care, including primary care, surgical consultations, podiatry, dental care, gastroenterology and gynecology. We have enhanced services to meet the need of the neighborhood's Spanish-speaking residents, with the addition of the following bilingual providers:
Dr. Aguil Guilmanova (Family Medicine)
Dr. Marisela Garau (Dental Care)
Jessica Glenn (Mid-wifery Services)
New services include cardiology, podiatry and sports medicine. Dr. Rebecca Altshcul provides general cardiology care on Thursday mornings. Dr. Allyssa Knowles offers podiatry services on Tuesdays and Dr. Haidy Rivero has begun providing sports medicine.
Expanded Operating Hours:
On Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays, the Center is now open from 8:30 am to 7:00 pm, to accommodate people who prefer to seek care after work hours.
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
Staff are available to work with individuals to provide a sliding scale payment option.
