Internal Medicine:St. Luke’s – Roosevelt Hospital, NY, NY
Raúl Daza, M.D.
I was born in Bogota, Colombia and came to the US in 2001 as a medical resident after completing my medical degree. One of the best things about medicine is that I get to meet new people every day, interact with them and help them live better lives. Knowing that I can make a difference in my patients is extremely rewarding.
When I have a patient who was very sick, and later I run into him or her on the street or at grocery store living their lives the way they are meant to: that’s a great feeling for any doctor to have. I want new patients at CliniSanitas to know that we will be the type of doctors they expect: respectful, available and willing to listen and help.
For me, a world of health means a complete approach to healthcare, focusing on the whole individual—not just their physical needs but also mental, spiritual and emotional ones. A world of health also means that health goes beyond the individual to include the family and their social environment.
In my personal life, travel is a passion. Now that I have children of my own, I can’t wait to travel with them, so they can become world citizens and understand the world is bigger than our neighborhood.
