Daniel Perez, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

In order to practice good medicine, a partnership between doctor and patient is essential. This partnership is based on mutual trust and respect that is earned, not given. As an MDVIP-affiliated internal medicine physician, I will have more time to develop close relationships with my patients, carefully review records and perform the comprehensive wellness program. We will work together as a team and formulate a wellness plan that will help you achieve your health goals. When it comes to the well-being of my patients, there are no short cuts to being healthy, no simple formulas or “one-size-fits-all” approaches. My internal medicine practice, compared to a concierge medical practice, provides the level of care that can help make a happy, healthy future your reality.

I am also a board-certified infectious disease specialist that can provide consultations for referred patients who have infectious problems caused by bacteria, virus and parasites. Some of the conditions I treat include cellulitis, pneumonia and urinary tract infections among others. Many of the internal medicine physicians in the area refer their difficult cases for evaluation to our office for our medical expertise. I have a variety of medical interests which include travel medicine, oncology, and its complications from chemotherapy, and immune-deficiency states caused by infections or other medical conditions.

I am an attending physician at Westside Regional Medical Center and currently a member of the Medical Executive Committee. As your private doctor who is familiar with your health, it is important for me to manage your care if you are hospitalized. My internal medicine practice currently serves all of the Western Broward County. I also speak Spanish.
