Our Clinicians

At the UCLA Family Health Center, our physicians and clinical staff work together in teams that oversee the care of you and your loved ones. This means that every member of the team is knowledgeable about you and your health care. And working together, we bring a broad range of expertise and experience to bear on whatever health situations you may face.

In addition, our physicians are teachers and mentors to UCLA Family Medicine residents, who also participate as members of our clinical teams. How do our patients benefit? The emphasis our physicians place on training the next generation of family physicians means that every case, whether routine or critical, gets careful and thorough consideration. And because our physicians are involved in research, they bring knowledge of the latest treatment options, and the most effective techniques, to provide you with the best possible care.
