Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Del Valle "For over 24 years, I have served as an advocate for the specialized care and management of elderly patients in South Florida. Whether that's researching and offering the most advanced methods of internal medicine, admitting acutely ill patients at local community hospitals or educating my patients on the latest approaches for treatment and prevention of disease. My staff and I have always strived to provide the highest level of patient care. Through communication and understanding we support and serve my patient's medical needs.

I pride myself on actively searching for new ways to better serve my patients. I find that the elderly patient in the community has very unique needs. Considering the many needs of this population, we have tailored our office program to best fit their individual challenges. Our focus is not only treatment of disease, but we also focus on disease prevention, wellness, dietary support and the holistic approach to patient care."
