OUR TEAM


Regina Chinsio-Kwong, DO

Medical Director, St. Joseph Health Wellness Corners

As the Wellness Corners’ medical director, I oversee clinical services at our seven sites and work closely with our teams of physicians, nurse practitioners and other care providers.

As a physician dedicated to whole-person care, I strongly believe food should be a prescription for a healthier life. I recently had the opportunity to share that message on morning television when I was a guest on Good Day LA with Steve Edwards. I’ve also been featured in numerous stories on HealthCalling, offering my thoughts about swapping nutrient-dense ingredients into favorite dishes, getting the most out of vitamins and the benefits of acupuncture.

Like the rest of our Wellness Corner teams, I’m passionate about helping people make healthier choices in their everyday lives and providing holistic, personalized care for the whole you – mind, body and spirit.

I’m a board-certified family medicine physician with an expertise in integrative and functional medicine. I began my practice after serving in the U.S. Navy where I was an attending family medicine physician at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton for three years.

Today, I develop integrative and functional medicine practices at the Wellness Corners and provide care for patients at the Wellness Corner at The Village in Irvine. I earned my medical degree from Western University College of Osteopathic Medicine and am an American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine diplomat.

Carolyn Oducado

Physician Assistant

I’m the physician assistant at the St. Joseph Health Wellness Corner in Anaheim. I bring 20 years of clinical experience to my role and spent 17 years in family medicine practice at St. Jude Heritage Medical Group in Fullerton. I enjoy helping people attain optimum health and well-being by educating them about the importance of eating plant-based and other nutritious foods. I also like helping them find ways to incorporate exercise into their daily lives.

Prior to completing the Physician Assistant Program at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles, I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in psychobiology from the University of California, Los Angeles.

In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, gardening, traveling, and baking with my 13-year-old daughter Sydney.

IRENE SANTIAGO

Medical Assistant/Receptionist

I’m the medical assistant/medical receptionist at the St. Joseph Health Wellness Corner in Anaheim. I have been a medical assistant for three years and worked in internal medicine before joining the Wellness Corner. I am a certified phlebotomy technician and recently earned my certification from U.S. Colleges in Anaheim.

I love being part of a team that provides exceptional care and service. I enjoy meeting and making connections with patients and putting them at ease, especially if they are nervous about having their blood drawn.

When I’m not working, I love reading, hiking and walking with my pitbull Chucke.
