Dr. Diaz's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Diaz "As a cardiologist, I am passionate about providing high-quality care that is personal and based on each patient’s healthcare needs. I enjoy working with patients to improve their overall health and help them stay well."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Diaz "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."
