PROVIDER TESTIMONIALS

Simenson-2013
Dave Simenson, MD
Merced Suites Clinic
Family Practice

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.

Danielle Myers, MD
Modesto Robertson Road Clinic
Family Practice

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.
