Learn about Dr. Diaz

Care Philosophy

I show compassion to each and every patient by listening to their medical history and getting them on the path to better health. I listen attentively to my patients’ concerns, educate them so they understand their issues and work with them to develop a customized plan to meet their healthcare goals.

I am also committed to working with my partners at Metro Heart and Vascular and my patients’ primary care physicians so we can provide a team approach to care.

I will try to take care of the issues you have previously been told "there is nothing we can do". There IS ALWAYS SOMETHING WE CAN DO!!!! I will treat you with the best of my abilities and with all the knowledge and passion that I have, as if you were my mother, my father, my brother or sister, as if you had my blood running in your veins.
