Antonio Soler, M.D.

Dr. Antonio Soler is an empathetic, enthusiastic and caring Physician, with over 10 years of clinical experience in Primary Care Medicine, Urgent Care Medicine and Occupational Medicine, and 3 years dedicated to Evidence based Plant Based Medicine.

He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Puerto Rico, where his love of science, ecology, life, and especially people led him to study Medicine. He earned his Medical Doctorate from Ponce School of Medicine, Puerto Rico in 2007, and then completed his Transitional Year Medicine Internship in 2008, (US based and accredited Medical programs). He is a Diplomate of the National Board of Medical Examiners since 2010 and an active member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine since 2016.

After having a serious left knee injury while playing basketball, and then undergoing surgery while still in Medical School, he noted that the traditional allopathic medications and therapies were not working to help relieve his significant pain and inflammation.

That started him on a journey to find more effective therapeutic modalities, and he discovered along the way that food could either have pro or anti-inflammatory effects. That was a profound paradigm shift and insight for him and an excellent option to relieve his pain while at the same time improving other aspects of his life. It led him to an extended and exciting path, and by trial and error, and by actively looking for the latest nutritional research, he finally found the most effective answer in Whole Food Plant Based nutrition, after reading research based books and articles on the subject and attending conferences and courses with the researchers and physicians themselves. He started not only improving himself, but observing that many of his patients and family members, who previously could not improve their chronic medical conditions, would start improving and even reversing their conditions, in a significant and steady way. Today he is fully committed to bring this knowledge, awareness and practice into Primary Care Medicine, to help patients improve and recover in the most effective manner that the evidence and research points to.

In his all too limited free time, he enjoys being productive and creative while working on a treadmill desk, indoor bike workouts, meditation, reading non-fiction books, especially on spirituality, astronomy, personal development and positive psychology, and watching the occasional sports game.
