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.
