San Dimas Medical Group’s Closure Update

San Dimas Medical Group has taken great pride in providing excellent care to patients in Kern County for the past 50 years. It is with great sadness that we announce San Dimas Medical Group’s closure effective November 30, 2023. It was an extremely difficult decision to make, but due to the current healthcare climate in the aftermath of COVID and the inability to successfully recruit OBGYN physicians, this practice is no longer sustainable. We are thankful for your patience with our office and staff as many of our employees have made great sacrifices to make it possible to continue to care for you. We will do our best to continue to provide excellent care through this transition. It has been an honor and a privilege to provide for your healthcare needs. We hope the legacy we leave in the community is one of dignity and respect as we always strived to provide excellent care with a personal touch.

Sincerely,

San Dimas Medical Group will be closing its doors on November 30, 2023

  • “Dr. Klis is (possibly) the best OB/GYN doctor I’ve ever seen. I had surgery recently and he did a terrific job. I am older now and it will take a little longer to heal but he is the best. I feel that I have been in the very best care”

  • “Rhonda Colvin, I first met Rhonda on August 12th and she is the best PA I have ever met! Very informative and made me feel like I was actually her patient instead of someone she saw occasionally. Thanks so much!”

  • “Dr. Tsai has a great smile, always prompt, helpful, polite but very fast!! I did not have a chance to sit down, straight to the room and then on my way home. Perfect!”

  • “Thank you to all the receptionists who always did an amazing job making me feel welcome to the office and checking me in and out of each of my appointments. I appreciate all of you!”

  • “I am so sad to say goodbye to SDMG! I’m moving out of town…..I LOVED my doctors and the staff was incredible. Your facility is seriously amazing! Thank you for always taking care of me and my family."

  • “Dr. Wendy Crenshaw, Amazing experience! She was present, compassionate, and caring. So many doctors I've been to law basic human decency. Not her! Thank you."

  • “I was against seeing a male physician (almost cancelled my appointment) but when Dr. Patel walked into the room I instantly felt a great presence. He explained everything thoroughly and was very reassuring. The second visit was the same experience as the first. His personality and knowledge to help a patient understand is outstanding. Thank you, Dr. Patel!”

  • “Thank you for the wonderful birthing classes. You were so clear, fun and the classes were so motivating”.
