Before relocating to Florida, Dr. Gizersky was a clinical faculty physician at Maimonides Medical Center.
He and his wife, Yanina Gurman, an early childhood and special education teacher who is also from Odessa, credit the warm weather and beautiful beaches as the reason they were drawn to Sunny Isles Beach. They have owned a residence here for eight years, but moved down from New York with their two children in August.
“We really like the community feel and its proximity to Miami,” Dr. Gizersky explained. “After the school opened and Mount Sinai approached me with the opportunity to anchor the hospital’s Sunny Isles Beach satellite office, I jumped at the chance to move here permanently.”
As a primary care physician, Dr. Gizersky specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of health conditions in adults. He also draws upon his holistic training to develop customized wellness plans to help his patients achieve their health and lifestyle goals, often addressing commonly overlooked but bothersome problems such as chronic fatigue, insomnia, weight issues, sexual dysfunction and more.

“It’s important that my patients are able to reach me when they need me the most,” he said. “All my patients have my cell phone number, and my offices are right here in the community. Living where I work allows me to feel like I’m contributing to my community, and it connects me with the residents of Sunny Isles Beach.”
