About the Practice
Family Doctor Glendale, Montrose
He attended U.C. San Diego where he majored in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience and minored in Human Development. He ran Track and Cross-Country for UCSD before co-founding a running club. After graduating, Dr. Rahm interned at a neuroscience laboratory in Germany and traveled throughout Europe before working at a nonprofit Biotech laboratory in San Diego.
Dr. Rahm attended Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine. As a medical student he participated in many volunteer activities including medical missions to Mexico and Ecuador. After medical school, he completed his Internship and Residency in Family Medicine at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. During his time there he was elected Chief Resident. Upon graduation he received the two highest distinctions: “Resident Teacher Award” as presented by the faculty and “Resident of the Year Award” as recognized by the staff. Dr. Rahm then went on to become an Attending Physician teaching at the same residency program.
Dr. Rahm feels blessed to be a Family Medicine physician. His Montrose based practice merges a highly accessible and compassionate practice with technologically driven tools and an evidence-based approach for healing. He is honored to care for everyone in the community from newborns to geriatrics, with new or chronic conditions. His primary goal is to help patients achieve optimum health.
In his spare time, Dr. Rahm enjoys spending time with his friends and family, especially his wife and kid. His other hobbies include running, swimming, movies, the practice of yoga, reading fiction books, playing any and all sports and trying new foods – the spicier the better!
Dr. Kuo attended Tufts University. After earning her undergraduate degree, she performed clinical research at the Children’s Hospital of Boston and then earned her master’s degree in Medical Science at Boston University. She decided to apply to medical school because health and well-being have always been important to her and helping others achieve optimal health seemed the most rewarding. Working with the physicians at the Children’s Hospital allowed her to see how they impacted not only individual patients, but also their families, which further strengthened her motivation.
Dr. Kuo moved to southern California to attend Western University, College of Osteopathic Medicine. As a medical student, she continued to be passionate about wellness and brought yoga and meditation classes to the students and community, as well as supported and participated in weekly runs, road races, and triathlons for Western.
She decided to focus on family medicine because of her interest in preventative care, and the ability to treat entire families; prenatal care, pediatrics, women’s and men’s health, and geriatrics, because the health of an individual always involves the whole family. She completed her family medicine residency at White Memorial Medical Center, choosing this program because of their commitment to the under-served community of East Los Angeles. During medical school and residency, she also volunteered at free health fairs, clinics, homeless shelters, and participated in medical missions to Ecuador and Peru.
Dr. Kuo is grateful to be a physician and finds that being trusted with supporting her patients’ health and well-being is an honor. She believes in the human body’s inherent ability to heal and utilizes both evidence-based integrative and conventional medicine to maximize this capacity.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, family and friends, trying new vegetarian recipes and restaurants, yoga, running, exploring Los Angeles, and tries to follow the same advice she gives her patients to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Kellie attended USF for her Bachelor’s in Nursing and went on to have a successful career as an ER/Trauma nurse at Stanford University. She knew she had much more to develop in her career path and decided to pursue her Master’s Degree/Nurse Practitioner at USCF, specializing in family medicine. As an NP, she has been in a variety of settings including urgent care, women’s health, internal medicine and the emergency room.
As her career has progressed, her passion for health has evolved into integrating and blending traditional medicine principles with an integrated Functional Medicine model, which is an individualized, science-based approach in which patients and practitioners work together to determine how and why illness occurs and restoring health by addressing the root cause of disease, not just “putting band-aids on symptoms.” She believes this is the true path to health and wellness and has helped many people achieve this. She embodies and practices many of the same principles that she suggests for her patients.
Outside of work, Kellie keeps busy working in the ER at USC VHH, being a mother to her 2 children, and enjoys hiking and other outdoor activities.

Heidi, Patient Advocate, Energy Practitioner
Raised on the East Coast, this Virginia Tech alumna, wife, and mother of 20 years found her way back to her Southern California birthplace where she began her first career in the film industry at Amblin Entertainment. Going through breast cancer in 2011 was the catalyst for a radical life pivot for Heidi. It was then that she dove into the world of mindfulness and wellness.
Heidi has been intensely studying, training, and honing her skills with subtle body energy and the internal development practices of Conscious Transformation™ for the past 5 years. She’s seen first-hand how mindfulness and wellness tools have transformed her life, the lives of her family, and the lives of so many others that it’s become a passion and privilege to share this work with others. She is Certified as a Level 2 Conscious Transformation Energy Practitioner and is currently going through the Apprenticeship to become a certified Conscious Transformation™ trainer. Conscious Transformation™ Energy Sessions balance the mind, body and emotional energies, which bring clarity, peace and purpose to everyday life.
She feels honored and privileged to be part of the Oasis Family Medicine team, where an environment has been created for not only herself, but the community to cultivate a greater sense of vitality for themselves. She is excited to get to know the Oasis community and share her passion for mindfulness and subtle body energy work.
If Heidi could pick a place to hang out, it would be the mountains! On the hiking trail, camping, skiing, white water rafting and enjoying the beauty of nature. When she’s not in nature, she loves adventuring to find fun artisan restaurants, coffee houses, and local art studios with her husband and two daughters.
