Dr. Sekai Chideya, MD
Sekai Chideya believes there is never a dull moment in primary care. "Each patient and encounter is unique and teaches me something about that person, the disease, and myself," she says. Sekai believes that the most valuable gift a provider can give is his or her time and presence, and she appreciates One Medical Group's commitment to giving patients and providers the time and space necessary for effective healing to occur. Sekai's style is respectful, personal, empowering, and full of humor. She gives her patients her full attention and explains her clinical findings and assessments in clear language that helps patients feel empowered to choose their best treatment options. "I believe in providing personalized but evidence-based care that empowers patients to make the best decisions they can about their health and wellbeing," she says. Sekai is committed to improving the health of women and elders, and is also very interested in preventive medicine, chronic diseases, dermatology, and palliative care. To stay healthy, Sekai loves running, yoga, hiking, and martial arts. She also loves doing anything outdoors ("The harder, the better!"), and says she'd be lost without her bike. Sekai is an east coast native but fell in love with the Bay Area while attending medical school at UCSF. She completed the family practice residency at Georgetown University and earned her MPH from Johns Hopkins. Sekai is certified by the American Board of Family Practice.

Dr Chideya was thorough, positive, and explained the situation very well. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I saw her at the John Muir urgent care facility which was a bright and clean facility. It didn't feel yucky like other medical facilities.

I had Dr. Chideya at urgent care in Walnut Creek (at John Muir). She was patient, a good listener, and very thorough in her diagnosis. When calling back with results, she was again patient, non-rushed, and pleasant. I was so impressed I mentioned her to my wife who is looking for a primary physician but apparently she only does urgent care now. Highly recommended.

Sekai is always very professional in a comfortable and compassionate way. She really spends the time to listen and asks thorough questions to get a complete understanding of any potential contributing factors beyond what lies at the surface. I always feel that Sekai treats my well-being as her top priority, both physical and mental.
