Puja Shrestha MD is a well-rounded Internal Medicine physician with years of experience. 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 her love of caring for seniors.

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.

This is the first time I saw Dr. Shrestha because I could not get a sooner appointment with my regular doctor in Long Beach. I am very happy with Dr.Shrestha. She listened to my concerns and spent a lot of time with me.

My health from either doctor is really good. A couple of buttons I pushed on gave ones where I meant to give like 3 or 4, so they're in the middle somewhere. So anything low is wrong but she's a great provider and listens well and the staff is great, too. So, thank you. Goodbye.

Hi, I had a great experience with this doctor. I'm thinking of changing my primary care to her I don't know I'm going to talk to her about her on Monday because I have to see her again on Monday.

So thanks a lot and the doctor is great. Just so you'll know, alright. Have a good night. Bye.

This is a very good doctor, they explained to me and I am very happy with her, I can tell my family that they can catch that doctor. I congratulate her because they have good doctors, thank you very much.
November 08, 2021
I just want to say I was very pleased with the way the doctor tended to my needs and my appointment went well. My main concern was with the staff. They're very impersonal, they're very robotic. They showed no emotion yet they do seem very content behind the counter, you know, having conversations, but with the patient not much interaction. That's just my opinion. This was my first time there. It was very uncomfortable. Thank you.
November 03, 2021
She's the most caring and precise provider I've encountered in years. She explains everything, let's you know you good accomplishments and let you know what's not right. Gives you instructions on how to resolve anything that not right.

November 01, 2021
Dr. Shrestha is awesome. She is very thorough. She is very kind. She is very gentle, and she is a very good listener. Everyone in the office is always very respectful. I was late like 10 or 15 minutes my last visit so I did have to wait about 40 minutes or so. But that was okay with me. Because I knew that it was my fault for being late, and you guys have a schedule. But they kept me, you know, they they checked in with me, and they assured me that I would be seen. And I just love Dr. Shrestha, she is very good. That whole PIH office is incredible, and this is [PHI removed]. And I'm sad that if I have to switch my insurance to a different county, and I can't have her. I will be very sad. So I'm just praying that that, this all works out, but I do
