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.

Dr. Kuo attended Tufts University for her undergraduate degree, performed clinical research at the Children’s Hospital of Boston and then earned her master’s degree in Medical Science at Boston University. 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, meditation classes, group runs and races to the students and community.
She decided to focus on family medicine because of her interest in preventative care, and the ability to treat families because the health of an individual involves the whole family. She completed her residency at White Memorial Medical Center. 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 honored to be trusted with supporting the health and wellness of her patients. She believes in the body’s inherent ability to heal and utilizes evidence-based integrative medicine to maximize this capacity.

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.

Shannon is a Registered Nurse who has been working in the hospitals for the past 11 years. Even during school, she saw the benefits of a holistic approach to working with her patients and saw the benefits to them when all aspects of their lives were incorporated in their care. She is specialty certified in Emergency Nursing and Pediatric Emergency Care. She is also a licensed public health nurse. Working in the Emergency department for the past 7 years, she cared for many patients where one event changed the course of their lives. But she also cared for many patients who had only had reactive care for so many years that much of their lives was now consumed with their health struggles. After working throughout the pandemic in the Emergency department, she saw even more how many people were not active participants in their own preventative health and how many were primed for illness by not incorporating their nutrition, spirit, mental energies, etc. into their daily routines or their health plans. She is excited to join a team where both practitioners and patients are happy to look at the entire person before treating them.
Shannon is a Mom to three kids and three dogs. When she isn’t running her daughter to gymnastics meets, her older son to his rock band activities, or keeping her younger son from climbing too high up in the trees, she enjoys being outdoors hiking, bike riding, and otherwise keeping her kids busy somewhere other than online. Shannon loves to travel and explore different cultures and thinks that everyone could learn a lot by just seeing how other people live.
