Fredric Balguma, DO

"My father, a pediatric cardiologist, played a positive role in my decision to choose a career in medicine. I am sure my sisters would say the same thing. I have one sister who is a psychiatrist and another sister who like me, chose family medicine."

Dr. Balguma grew up in Southern California and loves being outdoors and staying active. When not relaxing with family and friends, he likes to play basketball, go mountain biking or rock climbing. He believes exercise is a vitally important part of healthy living. He encourages his patients to live an active and balanced lifestyle and he believes his role is to help them do that.
