I invite you to join the small group of discerning patients who have chosen our one doctor office to provide their primary care in a uniquely personal manner. The same friendly receptionist, medical assistant, and billing manager who comprise my entire staff of three will greet and get to know you at each call and visit. We provide comprehensive primary care for schoolchildren, adults, and seniors seeking an alternative to large busy corporate medical practices.
I was raised in Ventura County and was fortunate to complete my training at the Ventura County Medical Center's Family Practice Residency Program, affiliated with the UCLA School of Medicine. Since completing my physician training in 1992, it has been an honor to serve the residents of Ventura County first as a member of several local hospital and private clinics and since 2008 as the owner of my own solo one-physician office.
As an increasingly rare owner of my own independent practice, my patients and I enjoy many freedoms. My patients are at liberty to use any lab, imaging center, hospital, or pharmacy of their choosing that contracts with their insurance. I have no restrictions regarding recommended specialists and am free to present a wide range of trusted colleagues with whose talents I have become personally familiar over several decades for patients to consider among those contracted with their insurance. I strive to practice current, relevant, evidence based medicine that is individually tailored to each patient's personal preferences and financial limitations, and maintain active subscriptions to a wealth of current medical references that I review regularly to stay up to date.
Our office is conveniently located on Loma Vista Road between Community Memorial Hospital and the Ventura County Medical Center. We are only a short walk away from Quest, Lab Corp, and Primex labs, and Roger's and Cabrillo pharmacies. Several x-ray and imaging facilities are nearby. In addition to street front parking, there is a twenty space lot behind the office off Luna Drive, and ample parking on the quiet streets behind the lot, where Dr. Stelman and all his staff park to preserve lot access for our patients.
