The Wewahitchka Medical Center has always aimed to deliver high levels of primary care and with the addition of a new doctor; they’ve doubled their ability to do so.

Dr. Angel Cortes joined the team in April but brings 13 years of medical experience to the Wewahitchka Medical Center

Originally born in Chicago, Cortes’ family moved to Puerto Rico when he was very young. There he attended primary school and eventually enrolled in Puerto Rico State University where he studied biology.

Cortes grew up alongside classmates who changed their ideal career paths about as often as they changed their socks, but he always had a clear vision for his future plans.

“I always said I was going to be a doctor,” said Cortes with a smile.

After getting his Bachelor’s degree in 1992, he relocated to Mexico and attended medical school at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara.

It was there that he met his future wife, who is also a doctor. After completing medical school the couple moved back to Puerto Rico where Cortes opened his own private office.
