Alexander Quiroz – 40 under 40 2021

Name: Alexander Quiroz

Age: 36

Occupation: Physician

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!
