Boquete Health and Hospice Has a New Medical Director!

Recommended Posts



Dra. Digna Diaz has graciously accepted the request to become Boquete Health and Hospice’s Medical Director. Dra Diaz has a busy practice in Boquete as her patients are both Panamanians and ex-pats.


After graduating as a General Physician in 1999 from Universidad Autinoma De Ciencias Medicas De Centroamerica in Costa Rica, then completing two years internship and three years as a specialist of internal medicine at the Seguro Social Chiriqui, two years Masters on Aesthetic Medicine and then ten years private practice in Panama, Dra. Diaz moved to Boquete. She now works and has established Boquete Medical Associates with Dra Sue King Loo.


The doctor’s vision for Boquete Medical Associates is to gather together needed specialists in Boquete plus include all medical related services into one main clinic. This medical clinic will provide consultations, small procedures, emergency procedures, laboratory, pharmacy, radiology, physiotherapy and alternative medical related issues to the residents of Boquete all in one place. Already the medical issues solved in the town have lessened the frequency of trips to David. The doctors are appreciative of the support, trust and positive insight of their local patients.


The Medical Directorship of Boquete Health and Hospice includes the possibility of assisting any attending physician,  reviewing a patient’s eligibility for hospice services, developing and implementing a plan of care, performing a home visit to assess a patient’s need, rendering the necessary medical and pain management consistent with a patient’s need, working with governmental palliative care programs to insure a patient receives appropriate medical care and pain management, and possibly accepting a patient for care when they do not have an attending physician.
