About Me: I love experiencing and learning about nature. I love to travel mostly to see natural splendor, but also to immerse myself and culture and do some adventurous eating. However, I'm from Southern California and can't seem to stay away for too long.

Undergraduate School: University of California, Irvine
Medical School: Loma Linda University School of Medicine
How I Thrive: I thrive by staying active with basketball, running, weight lifting to really clear my mind. At the same time, I love eating all types of foods which basically cancels out my exercising! To me, life is all about a balance.
About Me: I was born in South Korea, spent most of my childhood and adult life in SoCal. I am married, and a father. I have 2 dogs.

Patricia Ann Calimlim, MD
PGY-5

Hometown: Corona, CA
Undergraduate School: University of California, Los Angeles
Medical School: St. George's University, School of Medicine
Residency Training: Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science
How I Thrive: I strongly believe in spiritual health as much as mental and physical well-being. I thrive by surrounding myself with positive people who share similar optimism and values, which I find especially important in the climate we live in currently. I also try to exercise patience in navigating shortcomings in both myself and in others.
About Me: I am so utterly thrilled to back in my home, Southern California. I love trying new foods, going for road trips, and exploring new trails with my dogs. Traffic honestly does not bother me, but I am grateful for those surprisingly shorter commutes from inland to beach or to the mountains.

Hometown: Union City, CA
Undergraduate School: University of California, Berkeley
Medical School: St. George's University
Residency Training: Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science
How I Thrive: I thrive by spending my free time hiking, camping, playing basketball, and cooking.
About Me: I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. During medical school, I did my rotations in Southern California and fell in love with the area. I am passionate about volunteering and serving the underserved communities. Psychiatry is a profession in which I can continue to work with the underserved and socioeconomically disadvantaged communities, and training at Kaiser Permanente allows me to see patients from all walks of life. My academic interests include psychotic disorders and first break psychosis.

Theresa Portugal, DO

Hometown: LaVerne, CA
Graduate School: UC Irvine
Medical School: Western University of Health Sciences
Residency Training: Kaiser Permanente, Fontana Medical Center
How I Thrive: I thrive by spending time with my husband and four rambunctious, active little boys. If I'm not running from baseball to hockey practice, you will find me working on a house project, in my garden or doing some sort of outdoor activity. I strive to keep my balance, juggling work and motherhood, and I rely on my faith and support system to keep me going!
About Me: I was born and raised in Southern California and I have been so fortunate to be able to stay for medical school, residency and fellowship. Prior to coming into medicine, I was a special education teacher, so my hope is to return to the school setting once I complete my training to help develop more comprehensive school- based mental health services.
