Recommendation for Mt. Sinai personnel, hospital

Upon our arrival in pouring rain and with difficulty mounting the tile steps, we asked a passing doctor where to find the doctor with whom we had an appointment. He told the front receptionist to call said doctor. To our surprise, Dr. Marlo Palacios, an internist, soon came to the main lobby to greet us. After spending some time with us, this very kind doctor understood our confusion and referred us to Dr. Gustavo Vallejo, an orthopedist in building 2 across the street.

As soon as we arrived at Dr. Vallejo's office he took us right in; treated us both for a total of 30 minutes for a very low fee, even in EC, though neither of us had an appointment with him, and he was already busy. It was still pouring rain when we left to get a taxi but unsuccessfully. A hospital guard who noticed we had only one umbrella that had blown inside out in the strong wind, vigorously motioned and successfully called for a nearby parked taxi to come.
