Dr. Nora Vasquez, MD
Dr. Nora Vasquez has many passions, and medicine is just one of them. She was inspired to go into medicine as a child, when her family had no one to call for help in caring for her sick father. Dr. Vasquez choose family medicine because she felt she owed it to her people to help with the mundane, everyday problems that every family struggles with at some point. Dr. Vasquez grew up in Fontana and loves the Los Angeles Dodgers, fondly remembering listening as a child to Vince Scully call the games on the radio. Hiking, skiing, cooking and travel are Dr. Vasquez’s other great passions. She loves to hit the slopes of Beaver Creek, CO, Mammoth and even the local mountains when there is snow. She enjoys hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains and names the Dolomites in northern Italy as her all-time favorite destination. Last Christmas, Dr. Vasquez and her husband Chris brought three generations of Vasquez women together to teach their two daughters how to make her mother’s special Colombian Empanadas. She says her greatest passion of all is to enrich her daughters’ lives, opening their worlds and allow them to experience everything they can and want to do. “I practice medicine with a passion,” she says, “because I love it, and because I also want my girls to be proud and empowered women.”

Santa Monica, CA |
An extraordinary physician listens to the patient, makes eye contact, displays concern, and doesn't rush through the appointment. Dr. Vasquez is an average physician, lacking all of these qualities. I was interrupted several times, not allowing me to complete a sentence, therefore, not being able to present a complete medical history. She did not order a complete set of tests for my annual examination, and a week later, I still can't get an answer from her office on arranging it.
