Mauricio Flores, MD
Wellington, FL 33449
I am a pediatric endocrinologist at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. I treat patients with thyroid disorders, diabetes, short stature, metabolic syndrome, and pubertal and lipid disorders.
I knew at an early age that I wanted to be a physician. I love the special connections that I develop with my patients and their caregivers, and knowing that I am helping my patients to grow and thrive.
I try to make sure every patient feels comfortable with me. I want them to feel at ease and confident in the steps we are taking to improve their health. I pride myself on being a top performing physician at my previous clinical positions as well as maintaining excellent patient satisfaction outcomes.
Before joining Memorial Healthcare System, I was the medical director of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes at Driscoll Children's Hospital in Texas.
