VISALIA- In an effort to increase access to quality healthcare for patients in the Central Valley, Kaweah Health Medical Group welcomes three new physicians with different specialties that will serve to provide care to entire families in Tulare County.

Kavon Sarrami, M.D., Internist and Special Medicine Specialist; Ramon Galindo Jr., M.D., Pediatrician; and Caitlin Renn, M.D., Pediatrician, are now accepting patients at Kaweah Health Medical Group (KHMG), an affiliate at Kaweah Health, at 5400 W. Hillsdale Ave., Visalia.

Dr. Sarrami sees a wide scope of patients. As an internist, he cares for adult patients and helps them manage a wide variety of chronic diseases. As a Sleep Medicine Specialist, Dr. Sarrami helps patients who struggle falling or staying asleep, and helps diagnose sleep disorder problems to helps patients get their energy back.

“Regardless of why patients come to see me, I believe in patients being active participants in their care, so I really like to focus on educating them every step of the way. We’re doing this together and they know what’s going on,” Dr. Sarrami said.

Dr. Sarrami went to medical school in New York Medical College, trained for Internal Medicine in Cedar-Sinai Medical Center, and then completed a Sleep Medicine fellowship at UCLA.

Dr. Galindo and Dr. Renn provide comprehensive and compassionate care to children, from birth to early adulthood, including newborn visits, well-child visits, physical exams, and emotional support. Their top priority is preventative care; they strive to educate patients on ways to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

“I want my patients to stay healthy during their journey through life. It’s very important that I educate my patients and their families about the early treatment and management of diseases that can develop later in their adult lives,” Dr. Galindo said.

Dr. Galindo went to medical school in St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies and completed his general pediatric training at UCSF Fresno.

Seeing the great need to bridge the language barrier for Spanish-speaking patients in Tulare County, both pediatricians are excited to use their Spanish fluency to build strong rapport and establish trust with every patient.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to have learned Spanish, because I’m able to communicate more easily with many of my patients in Tulare County, and this will help me deliver quality care every time,” said Dr. Renn.

Dr. Renn went to medical school in Creighton University School of Medicine and received her pediatric training at University of Nebraska Medical Center, Children’s Hospital Joint Pediatric Residency.

Kaweah Health Medical Group (KHMG) is a Multiple Specialty partnership between Kaweah Health and Visalia Medical Clinic, the physician-owned medical group that has served the medical needs of the community for the over 80 years.
