Driven by values
August 17, 2020
ARC is happy to announce that Maria E. Chiejina, MD, specialist in Gastroenterology, has joined the team at ARC Far West Medical Tower.
“My desire to pursue a career in gastroenterology was driven mostly by values instilled in me; by my faith and family, especially my physician father,” says Dr. Chiejina. She goes on to say that gastroenterology provides “a fascinating blend of both being an intellectual physician and having endoscopic technical skills.”
Delivering compassionate care through a team approach
Dr. Chiejina’s philosophy of care includes delivering compassionate care, helping her patients live a healthier and happier life. “Respecting individual rights privileges and preferences” is also important to her, which, she says, “can best be achieved through a team approach.”
Within her practice, Dr. Chiejina enjoys the challenge of treating inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and diseases of the liver.
“Get screened for colorectal cancer at the recommended age,” Dr. Chiejina advises.
When she is not working, Dr. Chiejina enjoys spending quality time with her family, working out at the gym, going to movies, reading, and cooking.
Dr. Chiejina is currently accepting new and established patients. For information and appointments, call 512-346-8888.
Welcome to Austin Regional Clinic, Dr. Chiejina!
