Growing up, Dr. Jeffrey Cara always knew he was going to be a doctor. Eighteen years ago, The Palm Beach Post ran an article about him titled “Gardens Teenager Sets His Sights On A Career In Medicine” in the Meet The Neighborhood section of their local paper. He was 16 years old at that time of the article. Dr. Jeffrey Cara decided he wanted to be a doctor when he was in seventh grade, and he never veered from that path.
After graduating from Cardinal Newman High School, he went on to pursue a career in medicine. He trained at the nation’s leading, ACGME-accredited programs: Mayo Clinic, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, and University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine NorthShore. A graduate of Stetson University, Dr. Cara was salutatorian of his medical school class and completed his Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation residency at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), consistently ranked the #1 Rehabilitation Hospital in the nation. He then completed comprehensive fellowship training in acute, chronic, and interventional pain medicine at Mayo Clinic.
Dr. Jeffrey Cara returned as the director of Spine and Wellness Centers of America in Palm Beach Gardens. Moving back to Palm Beach County was a dream come true for Dr. Cara, who spent his early childhood and most of his teenage years in Palm Beach Gardens.
