Juan Zapata, M.D. joins Vein Center and brings Medical Spanish Fluency to the team

Palm Beach Gardens, FL – Florida’s premiere medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology practice announced today that Juan Zapata, M.D., has joined the Vein Center medical staff at Water’s Edge Dermatology. The Water’s Edge Vein Center is undergoing expansion throughout Water’s Edge locations to provide leading edge vein solutions to patients.

Dr. Zapata’s primary focus is vein disease with a singular dedication to helping patients who have been misdiagnosed or still have symptoms in their legs despite previous treatment. He comes to the Water’s Edge Vein Center most recently from The Center for Vein Restoration and Veinishing in South Florida. He has served in Internal Medicine and Primary Care at Millennium Physician Group, Internal Med Associates, and the Zapata Medical Center. He completed his residency at Weiss Memorial Hospital in Chicago and his internship in internal medicine at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago after earning his medical degree from Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana in Medellin, Colombia.

“We are very pleased to have a physician of Dr. Zapata’s caliber join our practice,” said Ted Schiff, M.D., Founder and Medical Director of Water’s Edge Dermatology. “With his vast knowledge of leg disease and leading-edge vein treatment protocols along with is fluency in medical Spanish, Dr. Zapata will be a great addition to our clinical team.”

Dr. Zapata’s extensive medical experience in vein disease earned him certification by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine with a medical specialty in phlebology, which is the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the vein. In addition, he is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

“When a patient who feels there is no hope for their leg problems comes in to see me, it’s very rewarding to help them,” said Dr. Zapata. “My goal is to provide the right diagnosis, the best treatment and compassionate care so my patients can feel better and look better, which is why I’m very happy to be joining the Water’s Edge team to reach and help even more patients.”

Dr. Zapata is available at the following Water’s Edge Vein Center locations:

  • Jupiter (morning) & Lake Worth – Monday
  • Palm Beach Gardens & West Palm Beach – Tuesday
