Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Dr. Serag first wanted to be a judge until she became fascinated by her childhood doctor and the way he listened to her and her mother. Dr. Serag brings that compassionate, patient-centered approach to Hoag.
“Hoag is a top-notch place,” Dr. Serag says. “They really want us to innovate and take health care to another level.”
She graduated from Stanford University, where she was the only student selected by faculty to speak at commencement. Dr. Serag went on to earn her medical degree from Johns Hopkins, where she was awarded the prestigious Longcope Prize in Clinical Medicine, which recognizes the top performer in internal medicine. She completed academic residency training at UCLA Medical Center. Most recently, she was a faculty member in the UCLA Department of Internal Medicine prior to joining Hoag.
Dr. Serag enjoys hiking and spending time in the outdoors with her husband and their 4 year old son.
