“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – Benjamin Franklin
I feel fortunate to be a primary care provider and be at the forefront of preventive medicine. I believe in a holistic approach to health and work with my patients to help them lead a healthy, disease-free life. I also keep myself up to date with the latest guidelines and practice evidence-based medicine.
Outside of work I love spending time with my husband and our 4-month old daughter. We moved here from the North East and we are looking forward to exploring California.
I have been a part of the Clinicas team as a Family Medicine Physician Assistant since 2010. I have a special interest in Cardiology and I currently assist in running our Cardiology Clinic with our Interventional Cardiologist.
Working in the medical field has been a great experience and I have really enjoyed helping patients reach their healthcare goals. I work very hard at motivating patients to prevent and treat diseases that can cause a significant change in lifestyle.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and young daughter. We enjoy hiking, barbecuing with friends and family, and traveling when the opportunity arises.
Going to the dentist can be a very stressful experience for a lot of people. I strive to create an environment and interactions that make my patients enjoy their dental visits. My prime focus is providing good quality dental treatment utilizing gentle techniques. I also lay emphasis on preventive care and discussions with patients so that they are engaged in their treatment plan.
I look forward to working with you to create a healthy and long lasting smile!
I strive to provide my patients with the best quality of care and treat them with respect. In my free time I enjoy playing soccer, table tennis, watching movies, traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
After graduating Dental school, I worked in private practice for a short time and then began my work here with Clinicas. It is my professional goal to help members of the community get a better understanding of their current dental status so that they may improve upon it. I believe educating people on their oral health and hygiene is the best and most conservative way of preventing further tooth related problems in the future. I enjoy reading and try to spend as much time with my dog as possible.
Hi! I’m Dr. Saito. It's been a pleasure working at Clinicas Ojai and Maravilla Health Centers. I enjoy Family Medicine not only because I get to provide medical care but I always strive to make my patients visits empowering and enjoyable. Come and see me! P.S. I change diapers.
