Rockledge Regional, Steward Health Care welcome Harry Diaz, MD, longtime family physician
When it came time for Harry Diaz, MD, to decide on a career path, he had an in-house role model.
“My father was a doctor for 41 years and he practiced right up until his last day,” said Dr. Diaz. “I used to help him around the office. That guided me into medicine, it’s the main reason I’m a physician. Health care is all I’ve ever known.”
Rockledge Regional Medical Center, a member of the Steward Health Care family, is pleased to welcome Dr. Diaz.
“It’s a pleasure to have Dr. Diaz on our team,” said Andy Romine, president of Rockledge Regional Medical Center. “His depth of experience, his skills and his love for people is an asset to us and to the community.”
Board-certified in family medicine, Dr. Diaz has a special clinical interest in treating such chronic health conditions as diabetes, hypertension and elevated cholesterol, as well as diagnosis and treatment of acute illnesses.
Dr. Diaz earned his medical degree from Universidad Central Del Caribe in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. He began practicing medicine in 1987, completing his residency in family medicine at San Pablo Hospital, also in Bayamon. His career has taken him to Omaha, Neb.; Melbourne and Viera.
As a family medicine specialist, Dr. Diaz sees patients whose ages range from newborn through geriatric. He treats a wide variety of conditions and can perform minor surgery.
“When you’re at home, sick, and you need to see a doctor, that’s me,” he said. “I like to talk to people a lot, so I enjoy seeing patients – whether it’s grandparents, their kids or their grandkids. I like the family dynamic and working within the community, getting to know people.”
Dr. Diaz is now accepting new patients at his practice at:
1317 West Point Drive
Cocoa, FL 32922
