Regina Chinsio-Kwong, DO

Medical Director

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.

Dayne Grove

Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist

I am the naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist at the Mission Hospital Wellness Corner at Sendero Marketplace. I’m passionate about providing preventive and restorative healthcare to my patients and giving them strategies to optimize their physical and mental well-being.

My clinical expertise includes helping patients overcome endocrine, digestive and autoimmune disorders, as well as other chronic diseases through an integration of conventional and alternative approaches. I believe that nutrition is a fundamental component to good health; my nutrition strategies have helped patients reduce inflammation levels, toxicity and stress.

I believe it’s important to educate patients about the underlying cause of their health issues and empower them to improve their health through lifestyle changes. I enjoy collaborating with fellow providers to implement integrated treatment plans that restore patients’ bodies, minds and spirits.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science from the University of Pittsburgh. I earned my Master’s degree in acupuncture and oriental medicine and my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, both from Bastyr University.

In my spare time, you can find me hiking, surfing and practicing qigong.

Dahlia Marin

Registered Dietician/Nutritionist

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist at the Mission Hospital Wellness Corner at Sendero Marketplace. I have an affinity for functional nutrition and the power of using food as medicine. I utilize my experience and medical nutrition therapy skills to empower others to heal from the inside-out to thrive and live their best lives.

I enjoy sharing my nutrition expertise in various ways, including one-on-one education, nutrition workshops, group classes, in home visits, and cooking demonstrations. I’ve helped patients with diabetes, hypertension, weight management challenges and other health issues become healthier and stronger through proper nutrition and lifestyle changes. I am passionate about helping people of various backgrounds achieve optimal health; I utilize my Spanish and Arabic skills daily to reach patients and clients from different walks of life.

I’m excited to be part of a team committed to helping people obtain optimum health and look forward to partnering with physicians and other providers to support positive change in individuals and in populations. I believe that health education is a powerful tool to be provided to every person willing to learn. I embrace Hippocrates’ motto of using food as medicine and strive to spark change in those I come into contact with to collectively improve global health.

I graduated Cum Laude with my Bachelor of Science degree from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona and will work to complete my MS in nutrition science.

When I’m not helping patients, I enjoy cooking healthy meals, spending time being active with my family, and doing yoga.

Samantha Mueller

Physical Therapist Assistant

I am the physical therapist assistant at the Mission Hospital Wellness Corner. I’m responsible for the Bodywork massage program which is more than just massage for relaxation. It’s an important therapy that many health providers recommend as part of post-surgical and even neonatal programs. Other people use Bodywork to relieve medical conditions such as stress, chronic pain, inflammation, and muscle and joint injuries. Additionally, Bodywork can help with mental health and detoxification.

I am trained in a variety of Bodywork techniques, including myofascial release, soft tissue mobilization, trigger point release, effleurage and reflexology. I work closely with Dr. Grove, and my clients, to select the right course for their care.

Before coming to the Wellness Corner, I helped provide physical therapy to patients with Parkinson’s disease, stroke, cerebral palsy, pulmonary concerns and pelvic floor issues. I have witnessed firsthand the effectiveness of a wide range of physical and natural healing techniques.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology from California State University, Fullerton followed by earning my physical therapist assistant degree from Stanbridge University, graduating summa cum laude. I am a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). In my spare time, I enjoy doing community service, spending time with my family and being outdoors.
