Our physicians are proud to pair with PA’s and NP’s. Together they’re able to work as a team to oversee your health by communicating and discussing action plans together. With care teams, there is better access for patients to see their providers in a timely manner, even same day. We believe care teams offer a more complete, elevated experience for our patients.

Michelle Etesami realized from a young age that she enjoyed serving people and wanted to work with them. Throughout middle school, she participated in medical mission trips where she discovered how excited she was about learning medicine and the art of healing. Etesami has a BA in Psychology and a BS in Nursing from Azusa Pacific University. During her time at college, she was inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. She also received her Master of Sience in Nursing, specifically as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Additionally, she is board certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
When treating patients, Etesami believes that it is important to treat the whole person: mind, body and spirit. She is able to treat patients in this way and states that her favorite part about working at Rancho is the culture.
Etesami’s time away from the office looks like spending time outdoors with her husband and two children. They hike, garden, and go to the beach!
