      Dr. Diaz says

      I appreciate and welcome all positive and constructive feedback. Your comments will help me continue to provide the best care for my patients.

      Patients with a history of diabetes, smoking, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity and who are over the age of 70 are at the greatest risk for PVD.

      If you or someone you know is facing amputation, has leg cramping or pain with walking, leg pain at rest or has sores or wounds that will not heal, please call our office. Our team would like to speak with you regarding the options that may be available.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Diaz says...

      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.

      Dr. Diaz's 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.

      Dr. Diaz says...

      I diagnose a wide range of cardiac conditions and work with patients to help them feel better and promote their overall health and wellness.

      I have special interest in peripheral vascular disease (PVD), critical limb ischemia (CLI) and amputation prevention. I have extensive experience treating PVD, utilizing the nation’s leading techniques to restore circulation and save limbs from amputation.

      ×

      Dr. Diaz says...

      I perform a variety of procedures for diagnosis and treatment including angioplasty with stent placement, cardiac catheterization and cardiac myocardial profusion imaging.

      I also have extensive experience with interventional treatments for peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and critical limb ischemia (CLI), including a treatment pioneered at Metro Heart & Vascular - and the first of its kind in the world - to re-establish blood flow in the tiny arteries in the legs and feet and help patients avoid amputation.
