Specialty Services

San Dimas Medical Group believes in focusing on their core services, doing what they do best. However, there are times when patients need a different level of care outside this scope. As a result, San Dimas has partnered with different specialists, specifically chosen to assist in your care. Each of these specialists uphold the San Dimas philosophy and are instrumental in providing the same level of care as own providers. Better yet, each of these specialists see patients in our office for your convenience. No need to drive to another facility or city to receive their services.
