Dr. Norma Roche is passionate about helping the underserved in the South Dade community. Since her medical school years, where she completed a rotation under our clinic staff, she has continued to volunteer her time and expertise to provide medical care for our patients, even visiting them in the hospital when our Medical Director was on leave. Dr. Roche, like many doctors are very busy; between managing a private office, admitting patients to the hospital when needed; and caring for her own family - she still finds time to volunteer to see our patients, even bringing her own Medical Assistant to help! During special events like our annual Back to School event, Dr. Roche provides free physicals; and for our Women’s Health Program, she provides gynecological exams and more.

Unselfish and dedicated are two words that can be used to describe Dr. Roche and her commitment to the patients of the Open Door Health Center. Even her family members volunteer at special events and pick up donations! From her home to her private practice, Dr. Roche has made a positive impact in the lives of many of our patients, which she does in a loving and gentle manner. She is a fine example of how a busy Physician in private practice can balance her work and family commitments, and still find time to give to the underserved. We appreciate you Dr. Roche, and your family & staff! Thank you for caring about our patients!

Congratulations on receiving a Department of Health Volunteer Physician of the Year Award, October 2007!!!
