Where I practice
Hi, my name is Dr. Erika Simpson. Welcome to my Web page! I have always believed that a career in medicine is more than a job. It's a privilege to work with people when they are vulnerable, sick, and unsure and are looking for healing or an answer. I believe that the gift to heal is one given by a higher power, and I am fortunate to work alongside skilled physicians here at Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center. I hope this Web page gives you an opportunity to get to know me better so I can join you on your journey to health and wellness!
I come from a loving family with 2 very strong parents and 3 incredible sisters. I was born in Los Angeles and raised in San Bernardino, and after many years of school and training, I am glad to finally return home.
About my practice
I have been interested in women's health for many reasons, the first and most important being that I am a woman. I believe that the strength of a family and a community oftentimes rests on women and as a result, women need to be at their best emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, and most importantly, physically. I have chosen to practice at Kaiser Permanente because it is one of the leaders in health care. This allows me to reach and serve a large population of women. Kaiser Permanente allows its physicians to practice medicine based on evidence and current research, with leading-edge technology. Kaiser Permanente also provides balance between physicians' professional and personal lives, making for more well-rounded and happier physicians. Kaiser Permanente allows and encourages its physicians to explore their own professional interests-for example, my interest in female sexual health.
How I thrive
I wholeheartedly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of living well every day. I do my best to keep a good balance between work and play. I exercise regularly with friends and spend lots of time with my family. I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes, watching movies with my nieces and nephews, and spending time relaxing with a cup of coffee!
