Mr. Grijalva enjoys working in a primary care setting because of the diversity of patients' ages and health concerns they present. He focuses on building a relationship of trust with his patients as they work together through illnesses or for positive healthier lifestyle changes.
Having grown up in Orange County, Mr. Grijalva takes advantage of knowing the area's many opportunities for hiking and fishing. He also enjoys playing acoustic guitar, backpacking and dining with family and friends. For the past 10 years, he has donated his Memorial Day weekends to helping "de-winterize" a Christian camp on Catalina Island for incoming summer visitors.
