Professional statement

Dr. Ernesto Diaz is a primary care physician with a passion for serving diverse communities. Not only does he meet patients in both English and Spanish, he also has served in a variety of different locales and worked with patients of different needs and backgrounds. This has been invaluable for his ability to relate to patients, and to make them feel cared-for. For over seven years, Dr. Diaz has served as a physician at St. Lucie Medical Specialists. In this work, he has gained the reputation of being a thoughtful and skilled doctor. He also serves on staff at Heart and Family Health Institute in Port St. Lucie. Dr. Diaz attended medical school at the University of Panama, where instruction and training was bi-lingual. He completed a two year internship at Amador Guerrero General Hospital in Colon City, Panama, and went on to earn his residency in family medicine at Seguro Social Gen. Hospital in Panama City. The experience was a very positive one, so Dr. Diaz completed a second residency in family medicine, at SUNY Health Science Center in Brooklyn, NY. His enthusiasm was apparent, and Dr. Diaz was named chief resident for his devotion and kind manner during his last year at SUNY Health Science. Dr. Diaz has served as an attending physician in the past, and has held such prestigious roles as the Chief of Family Medicine at Samaritan Health Network in New York state. He also served as Interim Medical Director at North Country Children Clinic for three years, a position he relished because he was able to work with kids.
