Name: Alexander Quiroz
Business/workplace: Radiology Associates of Ocala
My grand goal in life: To live a God-centered life and impact others.
When not working, I . . . Exercise, relax at the pool, join friends for dinner or take a road trip.
What I like most about Ocala: I love the sunny weather, the small-town feel and the great location of the city, just a few hours from the coastal cities.
My biggest pet peeve: Laziness. Life is about getting things done!
One word that summarizes my philosophy of life: Wisdom. “Happy is the one who finds wisdom”.
Personal superpower: Musical memory. I can usually remember the name of a song after a few seconds of hearing it.
If you could have a superhuman power, it would be. . . Time traveling. Wouldn’t it be great to know what will happen in the future and change our decisions now?
Community cause nearest my heart: Breast cancer. I often work closely with patients diagnosed with breast cancer, and I help guide their treatment.
A guilty pleasure of mine: Tacos. One of the greatest inventions.
Historical dinner date: Jesus, of course. He is the best role model we all could ever choose. I would love to ask him about the mysteries of life.
People who know me say I am … hardworking, passionate and good friend.
Biggest professional achievement: Becoming a physician.
Favorite part of my profession: My favorite part of being a doctor is the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life, as I use my skills to find the cause of their symptoms and guide their treatment.
I indulge too much ine . . . Social media. It steals your time!
