Vielka Centeno, APRN, FNP-BC
My name is Vielka Centeno. I am a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner living in Miami, FL. I am also a mommy to a set of boy/girl twins. I began my career in the Emergency Department and now I help patients avoid ER visits by providing high-quality primary and preventative care.
Centeno Health was founded with the idea that everyone should have access to medical care.
I see way too many patients unable to access a provider whether it is because they cannot afford insurance or the doctor’s high self-pay costs. I have also witnessed patients wait for long hours in the ER or at an Urgent Care Center for something as simple as a urinary tract infection or rash.
Health care should not be a luxury, it should be a basic need. Nobody should have to suffer or worry in silence due to financial reasons. Nobody should be forced to go to an ER or urgent care center (especially during these times) for basic health care consult and treatment.
My goal with creating Centeno Health is to give people access to a health care provider in an easy, affordable, and convenient way. I want to keep patients from unnecessarily visiting the ER or urgent care. I want to be able to deliver patient-centered, holistic care the way I have always wanted too but most importantly, I want to help you get well sooner!
