Dr. Yoshi Rahm is a Board Certified Osteopathic Family Physician with a separate board certification in Integrative and Holistic Medicine. Dr. Rahm grew up in a small town in Northern California. His simple upbringing, which included living without electricity, TV or phone, gave him an early appreciation for healthy living.
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.

Anne Kuo, D.O.
Dr. Anne Kuo is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician as well as a Board Certified Integrative and Holistic Medicine Physician who is committed to maximizing wellness and treating the whole person. Dr. Kuo grew up in New York where she was fortunate to have wonderful parents who taught her about the importance of healthy habits such as avoiding fast food and eating more whole foods, long before all the mainstream media coverage.
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.

She embodies and practices many of the same principles that she suggests for her patients.
