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.
