About Our Director

​Dr. Oscar Soto-Raices started his career as a Rheumatologist in private practice in Florida in 1999 where he started getting experience as a clinical investigator. Later, he joined the faculty of Emory University School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor. He continued his clinical practice along with several academic endeavors that included teaching and planning curriculums for students, as well as teaching for Resident and Rheumatology fellows.  

Later on, Dr. Soto started his own private practice in Puerto Rico where he joined the Ponce School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor and most recently was as an adjunct Professor at The Rheumatology Department at the Puerto Rico School of Medicine.

At the same time he had the opportunity of conducting clinical trials in his own practice and has kept on working on research since then. 

Throughout the years, the research projects grew in number and complexity leading to the beginning of a clinical research site (San Juan Arthritis and Research Center). The possibilities of growth led to the possibilities of an independent dedicated Clinical Research Center and Mindful Medical Research was later born.

He has been an active speaker for Several Companies throughout the years as well as an advisor for Companies on Medical, Marketing strategies, and protocol design. Has also presented at Local and International educational Congresses throughout the years. Dr. Soto was the President and a Board member on the Puerto Rico Rheumatology Association and the founder and first President of the Puerto Rico Foundation for Rheumatic Diseases - Fundacion FER, where he continues to preside on the board of directors.
