Our Providers
Irene Malek, MD 
 
I have  lived in Southern California since I was a child. I attended St. Joseph High School in Lakewood and went on to CSULB for my undergraduate education. I then went on to UCLA for medical school. After completing my education, I went on to do my Family Medicine Residency for 3 years at Long Beach Memorial Hospital. I enjoy seeing patients and have been following some of them for more than 20 years. I spend my free time with my husband, a colorectal surgeon, and our four amazing children.

I am a board-certified Preventive Medicine physician and I graduated from medical school at UCLA, where I teach, conduct research and mentor graduate students as a Professor in the Fielding School of Public Health. I also completed a surgical internship at Stanford Hospital, Preventive Medicine Residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and had the privilege of serving as Lieutenant Commander at the US Centers for Disease Control where I investigated infectious disease outbreaks all over the world.
 
I have a strong interest in wellness and look forward to helping you thrive and enjoy your life with passion. I will take the time to listen to you and provide complete attention to address not only your physical health, but also your emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being.
