Modesto is a vibrant community proud of its great traditions, educational opportunities, and multicultural lifestyles. Modesto is blessed year round with mild weather and some of the world’s richest soil. It is the 16th largest city in State of California with a population exceeding 210,000 people. It is the heart of Stanislaus County.
Centrally located on Highway 99, Modesto is easily accessible from throughout California. West of the valley and over the coastal mountain range lies the San Francisco Bay Area, a 90-mile drive from Modesto. Eastward are the foothills that house the famed Gold Country “Mother Lode” and headfirst into the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range and Yosemite National Park.
Modesto’s George Lucas Plaza offers the diversity and facilities of a metropolitan city, but still maintains an atmosphere of old fashioned hospitality. Modesto’s Downtown Farmer’s Market is located in the heart of one of the greatest agricultural areas of our nation – the San Joaquin Valley. Dairy products, nuts, fruits, wine grapes and poultry products are some of our top commodities. Play a round of golf, picnic in one of our many parks, explore our antique shops or visit one of the museums. If you are a little more adventurous try River rafting in the Stanislaus River, hiking the four mile trail or rock climbing in Yosemite, or jet skiing and camping at anyone of the beautiful lakes around the area.”

I have had the joy of working for GVHC for over 30 years, and have learned to understand and admire people from many different cultures and backgrounds. Experiencing Mexican empanadas, Punjabi pastries, and wearing kurtas from India and Pakistan are samples of the wealth of cultural experience here. I have written insulin doses in Chinese characters for elders who did not understand Arabic numerals. And the challenge and privilege of taking a healing journey with my patients toward their better health just never grows old.
Working at GVHC has given me the ability to live in a “big city that thinks it’s a small town”. I have the ability to live in a great climate without snow nor humidity – but don’t have to deal with the Bay Area or Southern California housing prices nor traffic. You are close enough to the Bay area to be able to take a weekend trip to see a play or the Giants game, or go up to the foothills and see the snow.
Golden Valley Health Centers allows flexibility in order to be able to spend quality time with your family and loved ones while still having a fulfilling career as a physician. You can serve the most grateful, caring population who truly need and appreciate the care you give.
It is an honor for me to work for the underserved population. It is such a humbling experience. I, myself came from a poor family, from a third world country. For me working in Golden Valley Health Centers is like serving and taking care of my own people. I know where they are coming from. Also, I may have a challenging role right now but I take pride in serving them and in making a difference.
I love working at GVHC because of the opportunity of providing quality care to the underserved population. Working here for the past 13 years did not only give me the opportunity for personal and professional growth but had given me the chance to be a part of its mission and vision.
