ISITING ANGELS MIAMI caregivers provide a wide range of services including care for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia, daily companion care services, hospice and more. Their experienced professionals not only treat family loved ones with the respect and care they deserve, but take the time to get to know the ones they care for and develop a personal connection, providing medication reminders, walking assistance, meal shopping, errands, getting to doctor’s appointments and general help and companionship. The service gets not only high marks from those who have used their services but has been recognized by HomeCare Pulse as a “Leader in Excellence” for the past three years.

HE OFFICES OF SOUTH Miami Women’s Health is less clinical and more familial, leaving patients comfortable and well taken care of amongst Drs. Phillips, Miller, Roca and Venditto. Adding to the staff is Nurse Practitioner Katie Fitzgerald (a former patient of the practice) and Practice Administrator Mary Jane Nelson, who has been with Dr. Phillips since his first practice. Family-vibes aside, South Miami Women’s Health also boasts being at the forefront of new medical advancements; they're one of only a few offices in South Florida currently offering a new kind of pelvic floor therapy and the minimally-invasive daVinci surgical system.
