Dr. Michael Diaz has the following 4 specialties
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.
- Internal Medicine
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

I recently had a mini tummy tuck with Dr. Diaz and would highly recommend his practice. He was very specific with what type of expectations I should have, and it turned out exactly as he said it would. He had explained everything in detail and it all went exactly as he said it would from pre-op to post-op. I have had MANY surgeries prior to this (knees, etc) and have always had issues waking up from surgery. I told the anesthesiologist this before surgery (as I do for each surgery), and this was my first problem-free wake-up. Such a refreshing change. My nurse Freddy was super friendly, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and had a great bedside manner. Larissa and Corina at the front desk were always happy to help and made all office visits run very smoothly. I was in pretty good shape before this but just had that extra, saggy skin from having babies. The skin is gone! Every time I pull on a pair of shorts I can't help but smile. It's been 7 weeks and I couldn't be happier that I did this.
I was seen in Dr. Diaz's office for Botox, it being my first time I was very nervous. Dr. Diaz and his staff made feel at ease. They were all very friendly and knowledgeable about the products and the procedure. Natalie made the whole experience quick and painless. As for the results of the Botox, wellllll I look and feel great!! I would definitely recommend it to all friends male and female, and I will be back when its time for my touch up!!!Q
