A native speaker of Spanish and conversational Japanese, Dr. Tomioka brings
cultural diversity, excellent skills, and her compassionate nature to
her profession as a physician. Her grandparents immigrated to Peru prior
to World War II and that is where Dr. Tomioka spent her early years surrounded
by family, which included many physicians. Always concerned about everyone
around her, her family encouraged her to become a physician to fulfill
her desire to help others.
Practicing since 2003, Dr. Tomioka chose a career in Internal Medicine
as she truly appreciates the challenge. She enjoys being exposed to a
broad variety of skills and applying her knowledge to help her patients.
She is excited to lend her talent and innovative ideas to Hoag Medical Group.
Dr. Tomioka has extensive training and always pursues ways to improve her
skills and knowledge. She attended medical school at Universidad Nacional
Mayor de San Marcos in Lima, Peru, completed her residency in Internal
Medicine at St. Barnabas Hospital (affiliated with The New York Hospital
- Cornell Medical Center), and finished with a fellowship in Geriatrics
at UC Davis.
Outside of work, Dr. Tomioka enjoys spending time with her husband and
2 year old daughter. Her focus is on bringing new experiences to her daughter
and they often travel and visit museums during their weekend excursions.
