Our Credentials and Experience Translate into Quality

Distinguished and Board Certified:

Our doctors are not only board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine but they are also Fellows of the American College of Physicians and Gastroenterology. Having an FACP and FACG places our physicians in this in the exclusive group. In the greater Los Angeles area, we are among a the few physicians that hold both the FACP and FACG. Collectively, we have the breadth of experience and knowledge that no other group can offer. Being an FACP is a distinction earned from colleagues who recognize our accomplishments and achievements over and above the practice of medicine. The most important considerations for ACP Fellowship are excellence and contributions made to both medicine and to the broader community in which the internist lives and practices.
