Laticia Valle, M.D.
Laticia Valle, M.D., has joined Highland’s Department of Medicine as an attending physician, specializing in Endocrinology. Currently, there is a shortage of endocrinologists in Rochester and other communities around the country.
Dr. Valle recently completed a fellowship in Endocrinology at The Ohio State University Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism. She did her residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Rochester Categorical Internal Medicine Residency Program and earned her medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Dr. Valle was Senior Instructor of Medicine for the University of Rochester and a hospitalist at Highland from 2005-2009.
“I like all aspects of the field of Endocrinology, from diabetes where I feel like I’m still on the front line of disease prevention, to a wide range of other endocrine disorders that are interesting and are a diagnostic challenge,” Dr. Valle said. “However, first and foremost, I enjoy interacting with my patients and working with them to achieve good health. I’m excited to return to Highland to practice this type of medicine and work in this community.”
