What Our People Are Saying



When I joined in 2011, I had a five-month-old son and was looking for a job that would allow me a better work-life balance. Today, I’m still extremely happy with this balance. Many of my patients came to me in 2011 and we’re still working together to keep or improve their health. It is deeply satisfying work.



I love working for Kaiser Permanente and have stayed with this group since 1998. I highly value the strong emphasis on evidence-based medicine and preventive care — and the access to trusted resources for diagnosis and management of care is priceless.



I started as an oncology nurse and I’ve been blessed to be able to continue as a hematology/oncology NP. I love working with this team because they are incredibly supportive and really love their work and patients.



As a physician assistant, I play a key role in medicine and can work as a part of a team. Kaiser Permanente offers true support, including easy specialty consults, mentorship, and great resources within each office and clinic. Also, my team worked with me to pursue treating specialty populations that I care immensely about
