His extraordinary curiosity about biology and everything that pertains to the human body led Dr. David Maury to practice his deepest passion, medicine.
After more than 30 years as a physician, he remembers how his career began.
“My interest in science began when I was just in school through my biology teacher. I still remember this teacher and how I was stunned by his classes. I always wanted to know about how the body works,” Maury said.
He is currently on the medical team at the DelaCruz Volunteer Health Clinic at the Brevard Hispanic Center, which offers free health care to low income people who do not have health insurance.
Based on the health condition of patients, the Delacruz Volunteer clinic offers the necessary resources through alliances with institutions and volunteer doctors to provide adequate care without worrying about not having the financial resources to pay for medical services.
Maury says that the assessment by his patients and the time he dedicates to them is the most important and rewarding aspect.
“I am passionate about helping them and getting to know them, spending the time that is necessary and having the ability to show interest in their health,” he said.
His philosophy is to be disciplined, examine carefully, and educate the patient.
Maury says everything is possible to achieve with patience and dedication, going step by step and putting in intense work.
Maury was born in New York and graduated as a physician in 1979. He worked in the United States Army until 1986. Soon after serving in the Army, he opened his own clinic in Oklahoma where he worked for more than 30 years. Then, he moved to Florida in 2018.
In addition to serving at the Delacruz Volunteer Clinic, Maury also works in area hospitals.
“I am so excited to be part of the Delacruz Clinic. It is a place where patients are valued and treated with love, and that is my stronghold,” he said.
The Delacruz Volunteer Clinic is part of the Brevard Hispanic Center, located at 4670 Babcock Street NE in Palm Bay.
The center’s mission is to contribute to the creation of a more just society without poverty, where all persons, families, and communities have the opportunity to develop their talents and can fully exercise and enjoy their rights.
As a result, this organization plays a role in offering charitable assistance with an emphasis on encouraging and promoting multicultural integration through arts and personalized assistance in the areas of health, education, housing, family assistance, immigration, employment, and financial development.
