Dr. Rene A. Paez was born and raised in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. After graduating from Colegio Maristas in 1987, he continued his higher education and received his Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), in Troy, New York. Rensselaer ranks among the top 50 universities in the United States and is well known in the technology, research, and engineering fields. At the core of RPI’s educational approach “is the application of science to the common purposes of life.” Continuing this philosophy along with his desire to help others, Dr. Paez decided to enter medical school.

He received his medical degree from the University of Puerto Rico Medical School and completed his residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Miami/ Jackson Memorial Hospital in 2000. As a resident, Dr. Paez excelled as a physician and gained the trust, respect, and confidence of his attending physicians and peers and was named Administrative Chief Resident in charge of 36 resident doctors.

Dr. Paez went into private practice in Clearwater, Florida for two years before joining the team at South Miami OB-GYN Associates in 2003. In addition to his position at South Miami OB-GYN Associates, Dr. Paez currently serves as Chief of Service for the OB-GYN department at South Miami Hospital. Dr. Paez is board-certified and has received numerous awards including the Gynecological Endocrinology Award from the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital. Dr. Paez is also an SRC accredited Master Surgeon in Robotics for GYN, specializing in Fibroids and Endometriosis.

Dr. Paez is proud to be a second-generation OB-GYN, his father Dr. Rene Paez Sr., studied medicine in Cuba and Spain and practiced for more than 30 years in Puerto Rico before retiring. Dr. Paez enjoys sailing, soccer and traveling with his family.

Dr. Paez is a wonderful physician. He is knowledgeable and experienced. He has a caring and compassionate bedside manner. He takes the time to talk to you, listen to your questions and concerns, and provide detailed answers in a kind manner. His office is typically busy, but Dr. Paez has never made me feel rushed or like he didn’t have time for me. When I had my second baby, Dr. Paez was not on call, but he happened to be in the hospital the next day and saw my name on the board and stopped by to say hello and check on me.
That is how caring he is as a doctor. He is the best OB-GYN!

 Dr. Paez makes you feel so comfortable and warm. He’s always ready to answer any question that’s thrown his way. I don’t feel anxious at all when talking to him. A total 360 from where I went for my firstborn.

Dr. Paez is one of the very nicest, kindest, caring, and warmest doctors. His personality is the best. (He) includes everyone in the family, not just the patient, which was very meaningful for my husband and mother while I was pregnant.
