Mission Statement"The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach the heart is wise."

Dr. Puja Shrestha earned her medical degree from Kathmandu University, Nepal Medical College in Kathmandu, Nepal. She completed her internship and residency at New York University, Woodhill Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Before coming to Pioneer Medical Group, Dr. Shrestha worked as a primary care physician in Maine caring for senior patients by addressing their chronic and complex conditions through comprehensive, personalized care, focusing on preventative medicine and patient education.

Dr. Shrestha comes from a family of physicians, including her father, as well as many of her aunts and uncles. Seeing the passion, dedication, and satisfaction her relatives received from caring for patients greatly influenced Dr. Shrestha to pursue a career in medicine. However, it was a unique relationship with her grandmother and the experience of caring for her which ultimately inspired Dr. Shrestha’s love of caring for seniors.

Dr. Shrestha brings her warm personality, kindness, and compassion to Pioneer Medical Group. She is committed to providing her patients with the tools necessary to live full and healthy lives, and encourages open communication during every patient visit. “I like to take my time getting to know each of my patients. I always encourage them to ask me questions because I never want them to leave their appointment confused and unsure. It is my hope that at the end of each visit my patients can leave confident of the care they are receiving, and clearly understand what next steps they need to take to improve or maintain their current health status.”

In her spare time, Dr. Shrestha enjoys an active lifestyle, cooking, and spending time with her husband, who is also a physician, and their child.
