Dr David Soria: NBA Medical Director
Dr David Soria is the Medical Director of Global Affairs for the National Basketball Association, and has held that post since February 2002. The role consists of providing concierge medical care for NBA players and staff at national and international NBA events. The position has taken Dr David Soria to Europe and Asia, and is taking him to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a preseason game between the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers in October.
As Dr David Soria knows, the game between the Heat and the Cavaliers is of particular interest to basketball fans because it will be the first meeting since NBA superstar LeBron James re-signed with the Cavs after four years with the Heat. LeBron James is a Cleveland native and began his career with the Cavaliers.
In addition to his work with the NBA, Dr David Soria is also a prominent emergency physician. He is the Medical Director and Chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Wellington Regional Medical Center in Wellington, Florida. He is also the President and Managing Partner of TruePartners Emergency Physicians in Delray Beach, his Emergency Medical Practice Management company with hospitals in Florida and Texas.
These activities and responsibilities keep Dr David Soria a very busy man. But he is also known to television viewers in Palm Beach County, Florida as the Health Specialist at WPTV Newschannel 5, and WFLX Fox News29. He appears each Tuesday and Wednesday on those channels, speaking on a variety of health related subjects. Dr David Soria has also been a fight physician at the MGM Las Vegas.
