The Longboat Key Center for Healthy Living opened March 31, in the Centre Shops.
The Longboat Key Center for Healthy Living opened today in the former location of Dr. Pamela Letts' Centre Shops Family Practice and Urgent Care at 5370 Gulf of Mexico Drive.
The facility treated its first patient around 8:45 a.m., according to a spokeswoman.
The Longboat Key Foundation announced earlier in March that physicians and staff of AllCare Medical Centers, a family-owned practice with offices in Lakewood Ranch and Venice, will provide primary and urgent medical care at the new facility.
The centers’ principals are Dr. Matthew Nessetti, a board-certified family physician, medical psychologist and psychopharmacologist, and OB-GYN Dr. Doris Ramirez Nessetti. Dr. Irwin “Irv” Becker, a Longboat Key resident, and physician assistant Anne Marie Dozier will be based at the Longboat Key office.
In addition to AllCare, the medical center will include the Center for Brain Health, which specializes in promoting brain health and performance, and Fitness Quest Physical Therapy.
The center accepts most health insurances and Medicare.
The Longboat Key Foundation raised $600,000 to assist with startup costs.
