About Us

Mark Sobor, M.D. began his work as a Family Practice physician in 1988.  After developing early osteoarthritis in his knees, a physician successfully treated his knee pain with medical acupuncture.  This spurred Dr. Sobor’s desire to learn more about acupuncture and other alternative treatments and their affect on pain. He opened SOMA Medical Clinic in Chicago in 1992 and SOMA Pain Management Center in Glenview in 2008 to put his philosophy into practice.  The SOMA team of practitioners includes physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists and massage therapists.

Dr. Sobor completed his Family Practice residency at St. Joseph Hospital, Chicago, Illinois in 1988 and the UCLA Medical Acupuncture Program in 1998.  He is board certified by the American Academy of Family Practice and a member of the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture.  Dr. Sobor teaches CME (Continuing Medical Education) accredited courses for physicians wanting to learn more about his pain treatment techniques.  He is also available to speak to your group.  Contact info@somamedchicago.com to schedule.
