Jeffrey Pua, MD

Philosophy of Care

Knowledge of evidence based medicine should be shared with our patients to make informed decisions about healthcare. My approach is to partner with our patients to achieve health and wellness. I like to educate about medical science and technology. I believe wellness comes from a healthy diet, a commitment to physical activity, and preventative screenings.
