Dr. Stela Kostova-Abadjieva is a board certified internal medicine doctor, who speaks English and Bulgarian, and has been practicing medicine for almost 20 years. She earned her medical degree from the Medical University of Sofia, Bulgaria, and completed her residency in Internal Medicine at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Dr. Kostova-Abadjieva’s parents taught her the care and consideration she expresses toward her patients. Her love for medicine is also shared by her sister and cousins – each of them physicians, specializing in different medical fields including gynecology, oncology, pediatrics, emergency medicine, endocrinology, and infectious diseases. She practiced as an ophthalmologist in her mother country of Bulgaria for many years before beginning her medical career in the U.S. Dr. Kostova-Abadjieva’s experience as an ophthalmologist has taught her to see through the eyes of her patients, and has inspired the compassionate care she now brings as a primary care doctor at Pioneer Medical Group’s Los Alamitos Office.

She stresses that adopting healthier lifestyle changes are key to treating certain health problems, especially for common diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Dr. Kostova-Abadjieva encourages her patients to be open participants in their healthcare. She says that when there is greater communication between the patient and the doctor, more of the patient’s needs can be met, and patients are more likely to remain on a path toward a healthier future.

In her free time, Dr. Kostova-Abadjieva enjoys reading both literature and scientific journals, watching movies, seeing nature, and spending time with her husband, daughter, and their family dog.
