In serving predominantly rural, often medically underserved communities, Dr. David Anthony Miranda has traveled tens of thousands of miles across the U.S.
A highly experienced physician, Dr. David Anthony Miranda has spent three decades driven by a desire to care for underserved, predominantly rural populations. Subsequently, and as a direct result of his experiences, the doctor has gone on to forge a career as a highly respected emergency locum physician.
“Starting out as an undergraduate at the University of California in Los Angeles, I would volunteer tutoring math and science to disadvantaged high school students in the city,” reveals Dr. Miranda. Going on to attend medical school at Cornell University Medical College in New York City, followed by a residency at North Shore University Hospital, the doctor ultimately completed trauma rotations at Lincoln Hospital.
“At Lincoln Hospital, I found enrichment in taking care of individuals from economically stressed and medically underserved communities,” says the emergency locum physician of his time at the hospital.
Fresh out of residency, a young Dr. David Anthony Miranda took his first post-residency position in South Mississippi. “I quickly found myself working within rural populations and with very limited specialty back-up,” he explains. It was here, the doctor says, that he honed his ability to become independent in practice, going on to forge a career as a highly self-reliant emergency medical physician.
“More recently, I was selected by a prominent provider of emergency medicine and critical care services to leading hospital systems in the South Central U.S.,” says Dr. Miranda, “to spearhead their newly reorganized locums’ division.”
Dr. Miranda was selected after being identified as a fast, efficient, flexible, and dependable emergency physician, thanks in no small part to his time spent working in medically underserved communities.
With prior experience working in over ten different emergency departments within the region, the doctor went on to further hone his skills surrounding rapid adaptation. “Adapt and overcome was the goal,” he reveals, “starting up new contracts and turning around existing, distressed agreements.”
“This,” he adds in conclusion, “I was, therefore, able to do with great success.”
Over the course of 30 years in medicine, Dr. Miranda has spent time in New York, Mississippi, California, and elsewhere across the U.S. He currently resides in Travis County, Texas.
Dr. David Miranda is a partner of Fit-Life MD, a physician-owned medical wellness and fitness clinic in San Antonio, Texas. Dr. Miranda’s personal interests include investing in the stock market, especially publicly-traded healthcare stocks, as well as music, theater, and film.
