When you come to Venice Family Clinic, you’ll find a compassionate team dedicated to providing quality care with dignity and respect. Here are some of the people you may meet:
Dr. Gilmore Chung especially loves interacting with the patients who come to Venice Family Clinic. Similar to every physician at the Clinic, he is dedicated to providing quality medical care, whether that’s conducting a routine check-up, diagnosing and treating an acute illness, or helping patients manage chronic conditions. He sees it as an integral part of his job to help ensure his patients’ overall well-being, which he most often does by taking time to learn about their lives. His goal for all his patients is that they walk away from their interaction feeling more hopeful that they can have a brighter future.
Dr. Rita Evazyan is all smiles, all the time – a shining example of the confidence she wants her patients to feel from knowing that their teeth and gums are healthy. You can visit her for any of the Clinic’s standard dental services, including cleanings, fillings, extractions and x-rays. But on any given day, you might also run into her riding her bicycle along Ballona Creek, where she’ll greet you with the same welcoming smile and cheerful disposition you get when you’re sitting in her dental chair.
Olivia Vanegas is a medical assistant at the Clinic’s Simms/Mann Health and Wellness Center. The part of her job Olivia likes most is making every patient feel welcome and at ease. She sees that as the best way to make sure that her patients have the best possible experience. She knows that the more comfortable patients are, the more they will be willing to open up about their lives, which gives her a better chance to make sure they have everything they need to get and stay healthy.
Lili Orellana is one of Venice Family Clinic’s stellar therapists. Lili’s calm and comforting presence puts her patients at ease, which is especially important for people who are wrestling with an upsetting situation. In those moments, when her patients’ pain feels insurmountable or fear about opening up too much sets in, Lili listens and tries to help them replace their negative beliefs with more nurturing ones. That’s how Lili tries to achieve her goal of helping her patients improve their quality of life.
Like most people in her profession, Liz Pena became a nurse to help people feel better. She’s practiced her craft in many other places (even other states), but there’s nowhere she’d rather be than Venice Family Clinic. She is utterly devoted to the Clinic’s mission of providing quality health care to people in need, and she appreciates how the entire staff at the Clinic shares her strong commitment. She also likes that she has the flexibility to spend quality time with her patients so they leave feeling a little better and with a little more hope.
