Olina Harwer, MD

“Being a family medicine physician offers a broad spectrum of medicine and I love having the opportunity to care for the whole family, babies to seniors.  My grandfather was a big influence in my life and I treat my patients like my own family. Helping people live longer, healthier lives gives me tremendous satisfaction.”

Originally from the Czech Republic, Dr. Harwer came to the United States in 1982 after completing medical school.  She finished her internship and residency training in the USC program through Western Medical Center in Santa Ana and found she liked Orange County. She has been in practice here since 1985 and has a special interest in Dermatology and laser surgeries.

In addition to her passion for medicine, Dr. Harwer loves to garden and grows most of her own vegetables. She also enjoys couture sewing, knitting, water sports, volleyball, basketball and ice hockey.
