Vladimir Valdés, Acupuncture Physician: Valdés was born in Cuba. He is part of the fourth-generation health professionals in the family. He began his studies of internal medicine at the Cuban School of Medicine. He also developed a taste for martial arts, which won him numerous championships. This new passion allowed him to learn about alternative treatments like acupuncture. At the time, Valdes was the only physician willing to apply such methods in conjunction with traditional medicine. He studied Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese acupuncture therapies to develop his own specialties with a combination of Eastern and Western medicine. When he graduated from medical school, drugs were actually very scarce in his country. This situation allowed Valdés to practice alternative medicine. He relocated to the USA in 1996 where he first worked as a technician in pathology for a dermatology center in Orlando. Once established, he decided to re-take his passion. He received his advanced degree, license, and certifications in acupuncture in the state of Florida.

Valdés notes, “The combination of Eastern and Western treatments allows me and our team to offer you a more healthy and natural treatment with less prescriptive medicines. With the high costs of prescriptive drugs, many of our patients have been making a very positive switch to natural homeopathy treatments for solutions to their health, wellness, and medical challenges.“

DNF Founder: Recently passed in the fall, Dr. Norberto Fleites founded all of DNF Medical Centers. He was dedicated to providing his patients with the best possible and most affordable care. After moving to the United States from Cuba to open his own medical practice facility, Fleites found his calling in serving the Central Florida community. He opened his practice here in 2003 in Orlando Florida, where he aimed to enhance the quality of life for community members of Central Florida.

 Wellness Center Extras: With COVID-19, the Center has limited some of its activities with safe social distancing. It now offers therapeutic exercise workshops, Zumba and Tai Chi classes on designated weekdays from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. DNF will soon start a complimentary Fitness Club that will meet every Tuesday. All of these activities are free and open to the community with pre-registrations. DNF is already very involved in South Lake area charitable programs and community activities. They recently offered free photos for children with Santa. The facility will work through the year on food drives for needy families. DNF  joined the South Lake Chamber of Commerce and looks to get more involved in helping the community with more programs and educationally-based workshops in the future.

The center offers free transportation services that will pick their patients up for a scheduled appointment.
