Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page! I am Dr. Phyllis Hayes-Reams. I work in the Department of Geriatrics, Palliative Medicine, and Continuing Care. I am board certified in internal medicine, geriatric medicine, and hospice/palliative medicine.
I was born and raised in Long Beach. I am excited to be able to practice medicine at the Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center. What I love most about being a physician is helping others. I feel honored to work with you to optimize your health and help you navigate through your health successes and challenges.
As a geriatrician and hospice/palliative medicine physician, I work with teams of social workers, nurses, nursing assistants, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and chaplains. I visit homes, assisted living facilities, board and care facilities, senior housing, the medical center, clinic, and skilled nursing facilities to evaluate and manage the care of patients.
What has helped me thrive is incorporating regular exercise into my schedule. Exercise and more healthy eating habits have given me more energy to manage stress, maintain my work schedule, and balance my family responsibilities. I enjoy walking and working with weights.
