OKLAHOMA CITY – A passion for medicine runs in the family for Dr. Gregory Jia.
Jia, a new urologist at Mercy Clinic Urology, decided to become a doctor because of the influence of his uncle, a renowned gastroenterologist in Beijing, China. After medical school, Jia spent four years in an orthopedic residency and research program before switching gears to complete his urology residency. He has practiced urology for more than 16 years.
“My goal at Mercy is to provide state-of-the-art urological care,” said Jia. “I treat patients like they are my own family members and enjoy building trusting relationships with them.”
Jia received his medical degree from Beijing Medical University in Beijing, China. He was an orthopedic surgery and hand surgery resident at the Beijing Jishuitan Hospital and Traumatic Orthopedic Center in Beijing after finishing medical school.
He then completed a research fellowship in hand surgery at the Hand Center of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City before completing residency programs in surgery and urology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City. He is a board-certified urologist and a fellow with the American College of Surgeons.
Outside of work, Jia enjoys music, participating in church activities, travelling and spending time with his wife and two children.
