Jorge Luis Infante, M.D. '02

By UM News

We thank Jorge Luis Infante, M.D. ’02, an emergency medicine physician with variety of health care systems across the Southeast. While committed to serving COVID-19 patients, he is also dedicated to addressing misinformation about the pandemic, from taking interviews with media, to updating family and friends via social media. Dr. Infante believes in educating others, “Be an example to others. Keep the curve flat so that we (in the front lines) are not overwhelmed and so that other physicians and researchers may be able to come up with improved solutions and treatments.”

While Dr. Infante recognizes the fear frontline health care workers experience, his chief concern is the well-being of his patients, “It helps to remember that the patients are as scared as you are and it aides in creating a connection even when you are separated by massive amounts of PPE. This holistic approach to the patient taught to us at University of Miami is ingrained in my practice.”
