Paula Abrahao, MD is an internist and currently shares her Palm Bay office with fellow Health First Physician, internist Kiron Malhotra, MD. Her professional interests include chronic medicine, diabetes, hypertension, and preventive medicine.
Dr. Abrahao was born and raised in Brazil and knew at a very young age that she wanted to be a physician, She states that visiting her pediatrician as a child is what sparked her interests in the medical field and the desire to help people. She also had a desire to travel and explore new cultures and decided to attend medical school at the University of Monterrey in Mexico. Upon completion of her internship in Mexico, she knew she ultimately wanted to practice in the United States and to be closer to family who relocated to Florida during her time in medical school. She completed her residency in pediatrics and internal medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, Texas. Dr. Abrahao decided to become an internist because of being able to treat young children all the way through geriatrics. She feels this gives her a complete understanding of life. Not only does she examine all of her patients in her office, she also examines them in the hospital when they are admitted.
Dr. Abrahao moved to Florida after residency to be closer to family and she was very attracted to the Melbourne Beach area.
