The Emerald Medical Group

     Welcome, My name is Dr. Adaline Zalkin and my goal is to help you be the healthiest and happiest person you can be. By way of background, I am a board certified in family practice serving the Sarasota area since 1989 and at my present location, 3900 Clark Road in Suite B-1, since 1999. I was born and raised in New York City, graduating from Queens College in 1971. I received my Medical Degree from Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara in 1975. After that I completed my internship at Queens Hospital Center and then my residency through Penn State at the Polyclinic Medical Center of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I served as Captain in the United States Army Medical Corps, stationed at Fort Monmouth in New Jersey after training at the Health Services Command in San Antonio Texas. Additionally, I received my MBA from USF (University of South Florida) and was elected to the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. Additionally, I am a fellow of The American Board of Family Medicine. I fulfilled my lifetime dream of establishing a practice in Florida in 1996. I enjoy watersports, working out, music, art and animals. As an advocate for wellness and preventive medicine, I encourage all my patients to get a baseline physical examination focusing on their unique health needs and lifestyle. Of course, achieving good health is a process and I believe that yearly physicals along with regular check- ups are essential for my patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is so much better to diagnosis and treat early on rather than to have regrets later. My patients include males and females, aged 13 and up, encompassing acute (cold, flu, etc.) medical illnesses, as well as following the ongoing (chronic) diagnosis, such as hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidemia as well as other chronic health care concerns. I also perform Annual Women’s Wellness exams, PAP smears and treat gynecological disorders as well as treat and diagnosis skin disorders, remove lesions and suture laceration. I follow my patients who require hospitalization at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota, as well as at Sarasota Memorial Hospital since 1996. My friendly efficient staff and I welcome you Adaline E. Zalkin, MD 1(941)-926-3100
