Anne Kuo, D.O.
Dr. Anne Kuo is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician as well as a Board Certified Integrative and Holistic Medicine Physician who is committed to maximizing wellness and treating the whole person. Dr. Kuo grew up in New York where she was fortunate to have wonderful parents who taught her about the importance of healthy habits such as avoiding fast food and eating more whole foods, long before all the mainstream media coverage. Dr. Kuo attended Tufts University. After earning her undergraduate degree, she performed clinical research at the Children’s Hospital of Boston and then earned her master’s degree in Medical Science at Boston University. She decided to apply to medical school because health and well-being have always been important to her and helping others achieve optimal health seemed the most rewarding. Working with the physicians at the Children’s Hospital allowed her to see how they impacted not only individual patients but also their families, which further strengthened her motivation.
Dr. Kuo moved to southern California to attend Western University, College of Osteopathic Medicine. As a medical student, she continued to be passionate about wellness and brought yoga and meditation classes to the students and community, as well as supported and participated in weekly runs, road races, and triathlons for Western.
She decided to focus on family medicine because of her interest in preventative care, and the ability to treat entire families; prenatal care, pediatrics, women’s and men’s health, and geriatrics, because the health of an individual always involves the whole family. She completed her family medicine residency at White Memorial Medical Center, choosing this program because of their commitment to the under-served community of East Los Angeles. During medical school and residency, she also volunteered at free health fairs, clinics, and homeless shelters, and participated in medical missions to Ecuador and Peru.
Dr. Kuo is grateful to be a physician and finds that being trusted with supporting her patients’ health and well-being is an honor. She believes in the human body’s inherent ability to heal and utilizes both evidence-based integrative and conventional medicine to maximize this capacity.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends, trying new vegetarian recipes and restaurants, doing yoga, running, exploring Los Angeles, and tries to follow the same advice she gives her patients to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Kellie Kell, RN MSN FNP is a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner currently getting certified with The Institute of Functional Medicine. She grew up in this area, attended local schools, and is proud to be providing optimal health care directly to her community. Kellie attended USF for her Bachelor’s in Nursing and had a successful ER/Trauma nurse career at Stanford University.

As an NP, she has been in a variety of settings, including urgent care, women’s health, internal medicine, and the emergency room.
As her career has progressed, her passion for health has evolved into integrating and blending traditional medicine principles with an integrated Functional Medicine model, which is an individualized, science-based approach in which patients and practitioners work together to determine how and why illness occurs and restore health by addressing the root cause of disease, not just “putting band-aids on symptoms.” She believes this is the true path to health and wellness and has helped many people achieve this. She embodies and practices many of the same principles that she suggests for her patients.
