Oct 2021 Its been sometime since we updated the website. Sadly it been a rough few months for all of us. We had employees that have had to quit for personal reasons, we've had employees who lost family and friends due to COVID, and we've lost several dear patients to COVID. Its been difficult to say the least. Hiring personnel has been impossible. Where is all this going? We pray for comfort, patience and guidance. On a brighter note, 2022 Medicare open enrollment has started. Our main plans are Humana, Preferred Care Network (formerly Medica) and Preferred Care Partners. Remember to chose your healthcare partner wisely. Just because they have more buses than Miami-Dade Transit or offer many ancillary services, doesn't mean they practice the best medicine, especially when you're sick and you need it the most. Do your homework!
Mar 2020 Due to the CORONA VIRUS outbreak, we have made changes to our office policies and procedures. We are currently asking ALL patients to call before coming to the office. Since we do not have the ability to adequately protect the health of our patients and employees, we have locked the doors and triaging patients over the phone and/or outside the office. Still we encourage ALL our patients to utilize our telemedicine capabilities until we get through this crisis. We are NOT doing CORONA VIRUS testing in the office. At this moment we are redirecting any test request to the Department of Health or your nearest hospital. Please call our main number 305-264-5000, if you have any questions or concerns. Coral Reef Medical Group is currently ready to serve your medical needs, even if we go on a county wide lock down. For our elderly patients, If possible self quarantine, PLEASE avoid exposure. Stay healthy and God bless you!

Dec 2018 Closure and Moving of our East Kendall office located at 7775 SW 87 Ave, Ste. #100. With reluctance we have taken the difficult decision to close and move our East Kendall office.

The good news Dr. Blanco is now seeing patients in our Westchester office on Fridays. Stay tuned for updates!

May 2014 GREAT NEWS!! CRMG has now launched a SOCIAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT to assist our patients in qualifying for additional State and Federal programs. Our patients have worked very hard throughout their years and faithfully contributed, now its their turn to benefit from their contributions. Also, there are others who have fallen on hard times and need some temporary support to get them to the next level. Regardless of where you and your family are at, CRMG is here to provide medical and social support. Typically, a patient's experience and outcomes, are far better when both of these crucial elements are provided under the same roof. We would like to welcome Mr. Guido Gonzalez, he brings 20 years of experience in this area, and is charged with the development and implementation of the Social Services Department. CRMG is very excited to offer this additional service to our patients.
