A Q&A with Kimberly Shine, MD, Paladina Health Physician
I was able to sit down with Kimberly Shine, one of our physicians who practices in the Los Angeles area, at our provider summit this summer to ask her a few questions about her approach to healthcare. She’s been practicing medicine for over 15 years, the last three of which have been with Paladina Health. She shared insights about her approach to medicine and what she sees as different about the Paladina Health model of care.
Ever wonder how an organization came up with their name or logo? We do too. So we thought we’d share the story behind Paladina Health and what our branded shield means to us.

The good news is that there are a few simple steps that can easily be taken to improve your health and prevent health problems.
