Dr. Oza's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Oza "Dr. Meera Oza has been practicing Rheumatology since 1985 in Orange Park and serving the greater Jacksonville area for more than 30 years. She completed her medical school in Lady Harding Medical College in India, and finished her internal medicine and Rheumatology training at Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan. She is a fellow of American College of Rheumatology and is board certified in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology. "I realized the shortage of Rheumatologist for taking care of many suffering patients, who required proper diagnosis and treatment. Over the years I have seen more than 30,000 patients and practicing Rheumatology has been a great source of satisfaction for me since I can make difference in patient's life, I can give them hope and they can live their life again. I treat my patients aggressively to stop the progression of the disease and deformities they bring." "I have been serving as a board member of the Florida Society Of Rheumatology since 2001, and I am a Past President of Florida Society of Rheumatology . I have participated in Medicare Carrier Advisory Board for several years. I was a member of affiliated State Council of the American College of Rheumatology and member of the Insurance Subcommittee . I am also a member of ACR, AMA, FMA, Clay County Medical Society and AAPI."
