About Rukhsana Serang, DO
Dr. Serang knew at a young age that she wanted to have a positive impact on people. It was serving as her parents’ health care advocate during their medical appointments that she became acutely aware of the importance of a strong doctor-patient relationship. These experiences reinforced her passion and led her to pursue a career as a physician with the interest of her patients in mind.
She chose to become a family medicine physician as it provides her the ability to treat patients of all ages and be involved at every phase of their life. Her goal is to have a collaborative relationship with her patients and involve them in every step in order to make their health care management seamless and simple. She strongly believes that everyone deserves this continuity of care and this remains her #1 priority.
Dr. Serang takes great pride in building relationships with her patients and feels that she can be a better physician when she has an open dialogue with them. As she states it best, “I treat my patients like family. I value my patient’s trust, and understand that every patient has unique experiences that have shaped their life and health. My goal is to work with each patient to provide comprehensive quality care at every visit.”
Dr. Serang studied Physiology and Neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). She then attended medical school at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California and completed her residency at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. She is thrilled to be a part of Hoag Medical Group and offer her patients access to the world-class resources they need and deserve.
Fluent in Spanish, Dr. Serang enjoys her time outside of the office with her husband, traveling the world, and being outdoors.
