For Dr. Jorge Davalos, it is a privilege to practice cardiology. “My patients entrust me with their welfare, which is a responsibility that is sacred to me. Whether treating emergencies in the hospital in the middle of the night or working together with my patients in the office, my patients’ well-being is my first priority.”
Davalos was born and raised in Miami; his mother emigrated from Cuba to Miami at age 11 with her parents in 1960 in search of American freedom and opportunities. “My parents met in Mexico, where my father is from, and ultimately settled in Miami. I followed in my mother’s footsteps graduating from the University of Miami, where I met my wife Jo-Ann. “ The couple has three daughters has been living in Colorado Springs for the last six years. “Our family enjoys all things Disney and Star Wars. I avidly follow my alma mater, the Miami Hurricanes, and hometown Dolphins, Heat and Marlins, in addition to my Cuban grandparents’ favorite team and my first love, the New York Yankees.”
Davalos said the treatment of coronary artery disease is his primary clinical focus as an interventional cardiologist. “However, I also spend a great proportion of my practice treating general cardiology issues such as congestive heart failure and prevention. My recent research interests have included being the local investigator for national trials involving novel lipid therapies. “
