ALAN KATZ, MD

PALM BAY, FLORIDA

MY PHILOSOPHY & APPROACH TO WELLNESS

I received my medical degree in 1998 from Universidad Del Norte in Barranquilla, Colombia before moving to Florida to complete my residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida. I’ve been practicing medicine for 12 years and in 2006 I became Board Certified in Geriatric Medicine.

As a specialist in geriatric care, my approach to medicine is to show each and every patient my genuine concern for their health and well-being. I treat my patients with respect and compassion and I thoroughly enjoy seeing their progress as they accomplish health goals. It is an honor to form relationships with my patients and provide a care plan to match their specific needs and goals. That is what I like most about practicing medicine.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and traveling back to Columbia when I can. When I do get a weekend off from the office, you can find me on the golf course.
