Cela Kobel was born in Eilat, Israel. She has traveled and lived in many areas of the United States including Pittsburgh, PA, New Orleans, LA, Downers Grove, IL, and Denver,CO.

She has provided much needed medical care to the under-resourced community: spending some time in Nueva Rosita, Mexico while earning her undergraduate degree in microbiology, and spending the past year and a half in New Britain, CT, practicing medicine in an under served community. 

She welcomes challenges in her career and in life, facing them head on. She pioneered in the medical field of the Community Health Centers of Connecticut as their very first Physician Assistant.

She earned her master’s degree of medical science at Midwestern University in Illinois.  A firm believer in the Patient-Centered Medical Home principles (which means the patients’ interest are placed first and communication between herself, the patient, and any specialists (AKA “medical neighbors”) is always open), she welcomes patients to contact her by phone or on the patient portal with questions about their healthcare anytime.

Cela specializes in chronic disease management, behavioral health and preventative medicine. She also has considerable experience practicing urgent care medicine, including fractures and lacerations.

Cela is a happily married mother of three children. Her family values carry over into her work. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with friends, gardening, drawing and canoeing.
