Edward Neff MD, Jacqueline Bradley, MD, and Omar Issa, DO serve as hospitalists for practice patients if they are admitted at Doctors Hospital in Coral Gables, Florida, or South Miami Hospital in South Miami, Florida.
What does a hospitalist do?

The team also coordinates emergency room visits, partnering with the ER doctors at Doctors Hospital and South Miami Hospital, and alerting them to concerns and conditions that might impact your emergency treatment.
What are the benefits of working with a hospitalist?
Working with your primary care physician in the hospital offers many benefits. Your doctor knows you and understands your needs.
Without your own doctor providing care, you’re seen by rotating hospitalists, which means there’s usually a different doctor on each shift. While these doctors are excellent, they don’t know you as well as your primary physician.
Your doctor knows your health background as well as your family and caregivers. They understand how to best manage your care while you’re in the hospital and after discharge.
This continuity of care provides a better outcome for you. This is substantiated by peer-reviewed medical literature, demonstrating that primary care physicians who serve as hospitalists for their patients have improved results on important measures such as mortality when compared with other generalists that often work in shifts.
Your health is the primary concern of the team at Coral Gables Cardiology Associates, P.A. Your doctor is a trusted resource and familiar face while you are hospitalized. By providing hospitalist services, they ensure that you receive the support, treatment, and care you need.
