Pooja Peters, originally from Easton, PA graduated from Drexel University and then went onto Stony Brook University where she graduated with a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. Pooja became interested in in medicine back when she was a young girl. She would play doctor with her grandmother and as she grew older, volunteered at local hospitals, and shadowed doctors and physician assistants which helped her realize that this was her passion.
Pooja will be working within our Spine Center of Excellence with concentrations in neck and back pain. When asked what she enjoys most about working with her patients, Pooja responded “I enjoy being able to help patients live a better life by decreasing their pain and getting them back to doing the things they enjoy.” She strives to provide thorough, personal, and compassionate care to each patient that she works with.
She is excited to work here at OAA, because of how OAA has always been known for excellent care throughout the Lehigh Valley and she feels fortunate to now be a part of this exceptional team!
In her free time, Pooja enjoys spending time with her husband, two kids, and dog. They love to go on family hikes, bike rides, ski trips and working around the house, gardening.
