About Dorothy J. Marquez-Maneja, MD
A southern California native, Dr. Marquez knew medicine was her calling. As a child, she watched her grandmother, a Filipino immigrant, struggle with the health care system and noticed that she was not guided properly which made her illness more difficult to manage. This convinced Dr. Marquez-Maneja that she would pursue a career as a physician and help fill this gap to provide an exceptional patient experience for all of her patients.
An internist with over 15 years of experience, Dr. Marquez-Maneja chose internal medicine as her specialty to master the management of multiple medical diagnoses. She views her role as a medical advisor and guide for her patients and helps her patients reach their goals. As she says, “I enjoy celebrating major milestones with my patients and guiding them along the way. It is a great honor to help my patients and provide support to both my patients and their families.”
Dr. Marquez-Maneja also appreciates the opportunity to educate her patients and finds it especially rewarding to share complex information in a way that make sense to her patients. This in turn allows her patients to take charge of their health and achieve the results they seek.
Fluent in Spanish, Dr. Marquez-Maneja attended University of California, Irvine (UCI) for medical school and completed her residency at UCI Medical Center.
A wife and mom, when she is away from the office, Dr. Marquez-Maneja enjoys creative projects including sewing, knitting, crocheting and making her own patterns and costumes.
