Having grown up in Huntington Beach, Dr. Correa has always appreciated the city for its beautiful beaches, laid-back community, and foggy mornings. After graduating from Huntington Beach High School, she went on to earn her B.S. with Honors from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Correa earned her medical degree at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY and completed her residency at the University of Southern California (USC), where she learned to treat the complex medical conditions of vulnerable and underserved urban populations.
As an internist, Dr. Correa works closely with many specialists to provide her patients with the continuity of care they deserve. With a focus on preventative care, she develops a care plan customized for each patient to help them reach their health goals. She takes great pride in providing comprehensive care and assisting adults of all ages.
Dr. Correa was inspired to pursue medicine by watching her mother, a rheumatologist in Orange County. Over the years, she watched as her mother built long-term relationships with her patients, and provided the compassionate care her patients needed to manage their chronic illnesses. Her mother remains her number one inspiration.
Dr. Correa is fluent in Spanish and excited to return to her hometown to care for the local community. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, biking, yoga, dance, and trying out new recipes. She is passionate about balanced, plant-based cuisines and can be found enjoying farmers markets and food trucks with her family.
