MIAMI, FL – May 12, 2023 – Charlotte Tudela, M.D., is a board-certified internal medicine physician at Baptist Health.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Tudela to the Baptist Health primary care team,” says Bernie Fernandez, M.D., chief executive officer of Baptist Health Medical Group. “Her extensive experience as an internist and hospitalist, combined with her commitment to enhancing patient care, make her a wonderful addition to our team.”
For the last five years, Dr. Tudela worked as a hospitalist for Baptist Health South Miami Hospital, where she served as the lead physician to a committee dedicated to improving doctor-patient communication.
Dr. Tudela is a member of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the Royal College of General Practitioners. She earned South Miami Hospital’s Physician of the Year Award in 2022 for her outstanding work in patient care.
After earning her medical degree from the University of Manchester Medical School and working as a family medicine physician in the UK for several years, Dr. Tudela traveled to the United States to complete her internal medicine residency at the Kendall Regional Medical Center.
