Internists are experts in adult medicine and care for the whole patient. They solve problems with chronic and multiple illnesses no matter how simple or complex. Of all primary care physicians, the “doctors of internal medicine” are unique in their focus on adult medicine. They bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs. They are specially trained to solve complicated diagnostic problems. They handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time.
Dr. Irene Kim is a California native having grown up in the East Los Angeles area. She graduated from El Dorado High School going on to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in human biology at the University of California, San Diego. She continued her education at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York where she obtained her medical degree in osteopathic medicine. Having spent 4 years in New York and away from her family and friends, she moved back to Southern California to complete her residency training specializing in internal medicine at UCLA-affiliated St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach, California.
Outside of the office, Dr. Kim enjoys outdoor activities like exploring new hiking trails and traveling up the California coast. She also loves traveling to different countries to learn about their cultures and try different foods.

Dr. Steven Ching is one of our most beloved doctors within our medical group. Having been raised in a diverse area of Los Angeles by his grandparents, he has a unique perspective into senior health. Dr. Steven Ching graduated from medical school through UCLA and spent a majority of his training at St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach and attending to clinics in the City of Riverside.
His eager pursuit of medicine was first born through his love of making connections with people. His deep love for serving others ultimately led him to the path to pursue medicine. His unique approach to medicine aligns with his desire to serve others. Dr. Ching believes in a whole health and deep listening approach to medicine. Dr. Ching refers to his practice as the “art of medicine”. As Dr. Ching states, “Healing comes in many shapes and forms, but it doesn’t always have to look like a pill. I firmly believe a greater degree of impact can occur with the simple act of listening, communication, empathizing, and caring”.
Outside of clinic, Dr. Ching has a host of varied interests. Dr. Ching loves to take walks and go longboarding near the lake by his home. He also has an affinity for cooking traditional Cantonese dishes, harkening back to his Chinese heritage and upbringing. Dr. Ching has some of his traditional recipes on our website at www.YouCanChooseHealth.com. Go online and cook with Dr. Ching as he teaches health conscious but delicious recipes!
