Dr. Valdez's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Valdez "Medical School: NY College Of Podiatric Medicine - Dr of Podiatric Medicine Residency: Wyckoff Heights Hospital, 4Yrs of PGY IV - Rear foot/Ankle/ Reconstruction Degree Fellowship: Wyckoff Heights Hospital Hyperbaric Oxygen and Wound Care, Wound Care Fellowship - (one year) Dr. Emerson Valdez was born and raised in New York, NY, but spent many of his summers in the Dominican Republic. Both of his Dominican-American parents wanted him to be educated and raised in the United States. In his early teens he began high school in the Dominican Republic while staying with his grandparents. He went on to live in West Palm Beach, Florida and wound up graduating from John I. Leonard High School. From his earliest years, Dr. Valdez proved to be committed to being active in the workplace. His many roles as a worker included time spent as a movie theater usher, waiter, construction worker, children's entertainer, retail store attendant and hotel front desk clerk/supervisor. He was also a Nationwide Marketing Campaign Tour Manager - (V.ER.B./Niños Activos Familia Sanas) - to help kids be active 15 minutes a day, to create an awareness of sedentary lifestyles and diabetes in children, sponsored by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). After working as an HMO rep in Miami, he realized the impact and benefits of having a physician in the community, which helped him to make the decision to attend medical school. Dr. Valdez entered Barry University and then transferred to NY College of Podiatric Medicine where he earned his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine. During medical school, he went on missionary trips with Project America - a nonprofit Christian organization that provides many services to impoverished places due to tragedy and catastrophic events. While in Miami at Barry University, he assisted one of his favorite professors, the late Dr. Clifford Garfield O'Connor, in helping the less fortunate throughout Jamaica, from Ocho Rios all the way down to Kingston, Jamaica, by providing medical care to small villages. Dr. Valdez applied to a Postgraduate program, and after a rigorous selection process, he joined Wyckoff Heights Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. Dr. Valdez became Chief Resident in his 3rd year and helped manage one of the largest Podiatric Residency programs in the nation."
