Known to his patients and friends as Dr. Monte, Ralph Monteagudo has been practicing medicine since 1985. His father, a physician who emigrated to Florida from Cuba before Castro took control, sparked his first interest in medicine by getting his son a job as an orderly at St. Petersburg Osteopathic Hospital.
Throughout high school and college, Dr. Monte worked as an orderly and nursing aide and has been caring for patients since the age of 15.
An "ordinary man" with an aptitude for healing, Dr. Monte enjoys being part of the community. With three kids, he's a veteran of many bake sales, car washes, ball games and school activities. He enjoys martial arts and practices "Isshin-Ryu" a form of self defense from Okinawa.
Dr. Monte sees patients at all three North Basin Medical Clinics and Lincoln Hospital.
