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."

He saved my life by Listening to me in the emergency room the first time I met him. Ordered one more test that showed a clot in my leg had broken off and was also now a pulmonary embolism. He is my primary care doctor forever now.

Dr Del Valle has been my doctor for almost 10 years now. He is the most professional and knowledgeable doctor I have ever had. He has gone above and beyond whenever I have had any issues or concerns. His staff is amazingly attentive as well. I had never been able to stick to a doctor, as they never felt like they cared. That is not the case with Dr Del Valle. He's always treated me like I was a part of his family. I am blessed to have him as my doctor.
