Where I practice
Hi. My name is Mario Gutierrez. As a family and sports medicine physician, I believe that building a great relationship with members starts with them becoming familiar with their care provider. I hope my Web page allows you to get to know me a little more prior to us meeting in the clinical setting.
I am from Dos Palos, California, and I knew that I always wanted to return to the Central Valley to practice medicine. My passion to become a doctor stemmed from seeing some of the difficulties experienced by family members and friends with limited access to health care. As a physician of Mexican and Cuban descent, I felt that being able to speak Spanish would be a valuable asset to serve the communities where I grew up.
About my practice
Combining a family medicine and sports medicine practice allows me to care for members in the specialties that I enjoy most. From preventive health to any sports-related injury, we can work together as a team to construct an individualized treatment plan that best works for you.
How I thrive
Staying physically active and maintaining a work-life balance is very important to overall health. By practicing what I preach to members, I am able to stay healthy and have insight about what they may be going through. In my spare time, I enjoy staying active by playing basketball, running, and working out. My hobbies also include cooking and watching interior home renovation shows!
