Dr. Thilan Fernando graduated Cum Laude from the prestigious Georgetown Medical University in 2005, and completed his residency at the UCLA Medical Center in 2008. Dr. Fernando has volunteered his time by practicing medicine overseas in Sri Lanka and Tanzania, and locally at a homeless clinic in Redondo Beach. One thing Dr. Fernando has learned during his time as a volunteer is how to stay flexible and work in changing conditions. “It's really eye-opening,” says Dr. Fernando, “you learn how to prioritize patient care while working with limited resources, on a wide range of disorders.” Dr. Fernando says he learned how to be adaptable while working overseas, a skill he applies daily when treating the unique needs of each of his patients. Dr. Fernando was raised in Cerritos and attended went to school in Downey. In his free time, Dr. Fernando collects cars and plays sports. He enjoys spending time with his children as well as traveling, surfing, and playing the saxophone.

He actually listens to your concerns. He doesn't rush you or make you think that your concerns or questions aren't important. Sometimes you are afraid or scared to ask a Dr something but he makes it easy to voice your concerns.
