Pesta received her medical degree from the Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. She completed her residency at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, Vermont.

“Dr. Pesta has a strong clinical interest in preventative medicine and is a passionate patient advocate.

“Disease prevention is a key component of good health care,” Pesta said, “whether advising a patient on lifestyle modifications best suited to their individual good health or suggesting a cancer screening to improve chances for early detection. The health and wellbeing of patients is paramount.”

Pesta’s office is located on the third floor of the Women’s Medicine Collaborative at 146 West River Street in Providence. She welcomes new patients. To schedule an appointment, call 401-793-7010.
