After years of working with patients who were living unhealthy lifestyles, Dr. Mills sought to establish a medical practice devoted to holistic healthcare by focusing on nutrition, exercise and wellness. In 1999, the the practice was established with the goal of promoting healthy behaviors. As a community that encourages exercising and eating right, California has provided the perfect environment for our practice.
We have transformed from a small office to a large practice. This growth has been largely attributable to the referrals of other medical providers and satisfied patients and, as the practice continues to grow and expand, we are able to provide more services and resources to patients.
From the beginning, the ultimate goal of the SoCal Men’s Medical Group has been to provide the absolute best care possible for our patients. With so many well-trained doctors and respectable medical practices in the Los Angeles-area, we strive to be a leader in medicine through clinical excellence and a more personal style of care.
Take action with the best doctors, staff and facility in the country for check-ups, prevention and treatment.
