About Dr. Contreras

Dr. Contreras is a Physician specializing in Internal Medicine currently practicing as a Hospitalist and Primary Care Doctor in Southern California. 

He grew up in the San Gabriel Valley, and stayed close to home, earning his Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences from the University of Southern California. He attended The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, for his Medical School Education. As promised to family and friends, he came back home to complete his specialty training in Internal Medicine/Hospitalist Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine at USC.

After his specialty training, he has held positions at community clinics helping medically underserved communities, has helped our Military Veterans by caring for them as a hospitalist at the Veterans Administration Hospital, and he helped grow an Independent Practice Association from 100,000 patients to almost 500,000 in a span of 4 years. He continues to learn and expand his scope by attending and graduating from the University of California at San Francisco Physician Leadership fellowship program, and the Harvard School of Public Health Clinic Management Program. 

Outside of Medicine, Dr. Contreras has a special interest in the Special Needs Community. He started a company that makes educational toys to help children with disabilities.

The cornerstone of his approach to healthcare is education. Dr. Contreras has stated many times, “It’s not just about teaching patients about the latest breakthroughs, or cutting edge procedures, but reminding everyone about what is tried and true. There are many things out there that we know can make people healthier, many things to help people take control of their chronic illnesses. Much of what we see is preventable we just have to empower people to do so.
