Dr. Sugarman's Care Philosophy

The diseases and conditions I treat as a Rheumatologist are complex and often rare. Taking time to listen to my patients makes all the difference. The information they provide on family and personal health history, diet, exercise and other aspects of their lifestyle is combined with the latest clinical and diagnostic approaches to plan the most effective treatment. I'm a firm believer in the power of the mind-body connection and its impact on achieving sound health and living with a chronic illness. I'm proud to be the president of St. Jude Heritage Medical Group, considered one of Southern California's best medical groups and honored to be nominated by my peers and included in the Best Doctors in America. My wife and I have two grown children and four grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with my family and playing golf.
