OAKLAND, Calif. (June 29, 2022) — Healthcare services company Altais today announced the opening of its state-of-the-art multi-specialty medical group facility in Riverside, California. The new Altais Medical Group Riverside serves the health needs of the Riverside and Inland Empire communities with a wide range of specialties: from primary care and internal medicine to obstetrics/gynecology, gastroenterology, urology, ophthalmology and interventional cardiology. The nearly 11,000-square-foot facility is located at 4646 Brockton Avenue, Riverside, CA, 92506.
Current or new patients should visit www.amgriverside.com or call 951-585-1800 for appointments and further information. The medical group accepts a wide range of insurance options, including PPO, HMO and Medicare Advantage plans.
The physicians at Altais Medical Group Riverside include:
- Clara Chae, MD (Obstetrics/Gynecology)
- Sarah Chae, MD (Internal Medicine)
- David Choi, MD (Ophthalmology)
- Eric H. Choi, MD, FACG (Gastroenterology/interventional endoscopy)
- Colin Christensen, DO (Family Medicine)
- Kathleen (Katie) Keating, DO (Internal Medicine)
- Rodolfo Saenz, MD, MMM, FACOG (Obstetrics/Gynecology)
- William Suh, MD, FSCAI (Interventional Cardiology)
“Our experienced doctors have deep ties to the Riverside community and share the Altais belief that the patient experience is our top priority,” says Rodolfo Saenz, M.D., an obstetrician/gynecologist at Altais Medical Group Riverside. “We are happy to provide access to everything from routine check-ups to specialized care in one location and invite interested patients to get in touch with us.”
According to studies over the past decade, the Riverside County community may have a deficit of up to 1,000 physicians serving a growing population of over 2 million residents. The new practice aims to address this shortage with a new model of medical care that, over time, aims to attract more healthcare professionals to the region.
“Both Riverside County and the healthcare industry, in general, have seen unprecedented cases of physician burnout and premature retirements. Doctors face a constant barrage of administrative demands, among other stress factors,” says Nishant Anand, M.D., president and chief executive officer for Altais. “Our mission is to reverse this trend and provide long-term support for healthcare providers with our business practices and technologies. Altais wants physicians and their practices to not merely survive but thrive.”
Altais is a healthcare services company creating business models and integrated, scalable technology solutions that enhance the patient experience, improve health outcomes, reduce cost, and drive professional gratification among physicians. Altais invests directly in physician practices, clinics, and related business models. In 2020, Brown & Toland Physicians, a network of more than 2,700 independent physicians in the San Francisco Bay Area, joined the Altais family of companies. Los Angeles’ Family Care Specialists, one of the largest community-based and Latinx-led private medical groups in California, joined Altais in December 2021. Altais also has two independent primary care clinics serving essential civic employees and educators in the Monterey-Salinas market.
