Dr Kahane has wanted to become a physician since the age of 3. Very few children complete grade school, middle school, high school, and beyond with a singular career vision in mind. However, Dr. Kahane never wavered from his dream to become a physician.
From kindergarten straight through to medical school, Dr. Kahane never took any time off to achieve his aspirations. He completed his medical school at Ross University School of Medicine in 2015 and became an established member of the Bradenton community by becoming a part of the first ever residency class at Blake Medical Center.
While there he served 1 year as Chief Internal Medicine resident. He is proficient in complex patient care, autoimmune diseases, and everyday medical concerns. Dr. Kahane is fluent in both English and Spanish and is excited to join the Ellenton Urgent Care team.
In his spare time Dr Kahane enjoys the beach, water sports, politics, watching football, and spending time with his dog.

Hola, my name is Deliana Marte. I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic until my family and I moved to New Jersey. I, along with my children, moved to Florida in 2010. I have worked in the medical field for over 7 years. I began my career as a medical assistant, and have repentantly earned LPN license. I am currently working toward earning my RN degree. My true passion is helping others and spending time with my family. When I'm not working at the clinic or spending time with loved ones, I enjoy crafting. I have worked in the urgent care setting since Beth and Alex opened their doors in Ellenton in early 2018.
